5 reasons you should choose Wimbledon over Netflix
Bored of Bridgerton? Smashed the latest series of Stranger Things? Get some top tennis on your watch list
It's a staple tournament in the annual tennis calendar and much better than anything you'll find on Netflix.
Don't believe us? Here's why Wimbledon should be on your radar...
It's more dramatic
There's lots of yelling, destroyed tennis rackets, and broken friendships.
With players dramatically shouting things like, “YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!” it’s like Selling Sunsets, but with rackets.
The characters are more entertaining
If you've never heard of Mansour Bahrami then stop what you're doing right now and watch the video above.
He's in his mid-sixties and pulling off trick shots you've never even dreamed of!
The players are realistically fit
It’s no mystery that tennis stars have well-crafted physiques! They’re not all the same sizes or shapes, and that’s where the realism lies.
Serena Williams isn't your typical stick-thin athlete and that's great for the future generation of tennis stars to see.
There are competitors from all over the world
Tennis is a worldwide sport and you can be as patriotic as you want. Will we cheer on Andy Murray during Wimbledon in the UK? Of course!
He’s trying to win something to represent Britain and you don’t get that from Squid Game.
You can see acts of true heroism
Despite the high stakes the stars of tennis can be just as heroic as TV heroes and heroines.
They say tennis is a gentleman's game and Wimbledon is a fine example of sportsmanship (and sportswomanship), which is something that warms your heart better than any rom-com.
So save your Netflix subscription for a month, because as you can see, tennis can provide all the drama, comedy, and controversy you need this summer!
