Thought a few of you may be interested:


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.

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

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

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