Airdate: Gods of Tennis
3 part doco series includes interviews from the greatest players to have ever graced centre court.
3 part sports documentary series Gods of Tennis will premiere next week on SBS.
This fascinating series revisits a golden age of tennis during the 70s and 80s that changed the sport forever. Framed through the world-famous Wimbledon tournament, it features memorable archive from some of the most famous moments in tennis, as well as revealing interviews from the greatest players to have ever graced centre court: John McEnroe, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ash, Bjorn Borg, Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. These were heroes who not only produced some of the best matches in the history of sport, but who broke boundaries and drove significant change away from the tennis courts.
It’s 1975 and two tennis greats – Billie Jean King and Arthur Ashe – are aiming to win Wimbledon titles but also, in their own ways, to change the world for the better.
