Netflix Reveals Break Point Season One, Part Two Trailer and Release Date

    Netflix has confirmed that the second set of Break Point episodes will be released this summer.

    The tennis documentary, produced by the same company behind the F1 documentary Drive to Survive, follows established stars and up-and-coming talents as they seek success on the ATP and WTA Tours.

    A new trailer confirms the court sensations that will feature in the second half of season one, with new episodes released periodically on the streaming platform from June 21 onwards.

    Serving Up a Treat

    With Wimbledon 2023 just around the corner, Netflix has timed the release of Break Point part two to perfection.

    The grass court tournament is one of the most popular sporting moments on TV each summer and one of the most wagered-upon tennis betting markets too; with a number of players fancied to do well at Wimbledon appearing in Break Point. They include Aryna Sabalenka (4/1) and Ons Jabeur (11/1) in the women’s singles and Nick Kyrgios (22/1) and Taylor Fritz (25/1) in the men’s draw.

    The action in part two picks up where the first batch of episodes left off, with the trailer confirming that Wimbledon 2022 – the action on the court, as well as the players’ preparations for the third Grand Slam of the calendar year – is the starting point.

    The documentary also captures the U.S. Open, the final major of 2022 where American queen of the court Serena Williams made her emotional ‘retirement’ from tennis – although she has hinted that she may well return to the sport one day.

    There’s plenty of behind-the-scenes action filmed in London and New York as the doc lifts the lid on the players’ lives away from the court, so it’s very much a case of as-you-were from the first half of the opening series.

    In addition, despite tepid viewing figures (the show failed to make the Top 10 most watched on Netflix in its opening week), the streaming giant has confirmed that Break Point has been renewed for a second season.

    Full Swing Cameras Rolling as Shock Merger Announced

    Another member of Netflix’s sporting documentaries canon, Full Swing, enjoyed remarkable good fortune in June – one almost guaranteed to boost interest in the second season of the show.

    Following golf’s best and most interesting players, the first season of Full Swing coincided with the brutal conflict that saw a number of stars quit the PGA Tour to join the rebel LIV Golf circuit. A handful of episodes featured the build-up to – and aftermath of – the split that shook the sport to its core.

    Now, production engineers have confirmed that their cameras were rolling in June when it was revealed that the PGA Tour and LIV Golf were to merge. This was a scarcely-believable outcome given that the two entities were set for a landmark court battle later this year.

    Some players knew nothing of the merger until the news broke on Twitter, and with several players from either tour engaged in bitter feuds both online and in person, the second season of Full Swing is shaping up to be popcorn viewing.

    Could sports documentaries become even more entertaining than the sporting activities they are based upon?
