Fed and Rafa, the movie

Thought a few of you may be interested:

http://www.screendaily.com/festivals...001328.article

Tennis titans Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, yesterday (May 17) doing battle on the court in Madrid, will be the focus on a new crossover documentary by Jose Luiz Lopez-Linares.

The as-yet-untitled film, which will be sold by Latido, will explore the rivalry and the friendship between Spaniard Nadal, and Swiss star Federer, by common consensus the best players of their generation. Nadal and Federer have had many epic tussles in finals of major tournaments ranging from Wimbledon to the French Open.

The project is one of a host of recent sport feature docs from artists and auteur directors. Spike Lee is currently making Kobe Doin’ Work, a documentary of one game in the life of basketball star Kobe Bryant. It has been inspired by the 2006 football film Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, which screened in Cannes.

Re: Fed and Rafa, the movie

Hmmm. Sounds like the movie industry has found a new cash cow to milk.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Fed and Rafa, the movie

Spike Lee is a moron when it comes to tennis. Heard his old interviews at the USO..

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

I'm not having high hopes about this but it will be interesting anyway.

Roger Federer. Legend.
