Who's Seen Tennis Masters Uncovered II?

I caught it on ESPN Classic over the weekend, and, while I was jazzed to see some off-court coverage of my favorite players, I was somewhat disappointed with the content.

Has anyone here seen this documentary? If so, what are your thoughts?

Re: Who's Seen Tennis Masters Uncovered II?

I have ESPN Classic and when I tuned in at the time they listed, there was only NCAA women's basketball.

But that's ESPN for you.

I heard that the documentary wasn't about on court action, but about off court action.

Its really crap compared to the first 1. The first one i watched quite a few times, second one is only worth watching once. I really liked the fact, that the first one had clips of points etc

I did watch it, I hear the DVD has some extra bonus coverage though- the Fed-Safin tie-breaker and extended interviews with the players

Roger Federer. “For his smoothness.”
Rod Laver. “Had the complete package.”
John McEnroe. “A unique game.”

It must have been aired at 11:00 A.M. in all time zones.
If you had tuned in at your local time 11:00 A.M., maybe you would have seen it.

One of the few interesting things in this documentary was a shot of Andy
hitting the ball so hard that the yellow fluff from the ball was flying in the air
around him. Wow, I had no idea that could happen!

Also, some girls were drooling over how hot Marat was.
Unfortunately, no near nude shots this time of Carlos.
However, they did have extended footage of Guillermo being massaged
near nude. Why not Andy or Marat?


It's true there was a lot of emphasis on Roger being the King.
It was nice that they showed his mother there as well as a good deal of
Roger's girlfriend Mirka, including some words from her.

They deemphasized the huge amount of rain.
I only remember one shot of Jim McIngvale so it's good this documentary
did not revolve around him.

One thing that I liked about it was that Tim Henman seemed to be having a good time and was quite a bit goofier than I have normally seen him.

Re: Who's Seen Tennis Masters Uncovered II?

I liked it. Maybe better than the last one.

Among other things, I gained a new appreciation for Tim Henman. His self-depreciating sense of humor won me over, despite his utterly gross feet.

The extras may have been the best part, particularly the extended conversation between Lleyton and his coach in the car (which came across MUCH funnier than in the film itself), and the filming of Marat's contribution to the credits.

Re: Who's Seen Tennis Masters Uncovered II?

I loved the first, and bought it--haven't got round to buying the second, although I've watched it once or twice and again adored it! They need some dubs on there though
