The tennis show by Netflix 'Break Point' has been renewed for a second season after the first season proved a solid success.

It wasn't as big as the Formula One show that inspired but it still did some positive things for the sport by showing it in more detail. Players like Bianca Andreescu praised it heavily admitting to wanting to be a part of it but there were plenty of those that didn't particularly enjoy it.

The sentiment across tennis media explained it as nothing that offered new insight into tennis though it could be interesting to people who know nothing about the sport. It was renewed for season two after the first five episodes aired. The first season has a total of 10 episodes with the second batch set to be released in June.

The second batch of episodes will feature a close focus on the events from Wimbledon, Eastbourne, Queen's Club, the WTA Finals and the ATP Finals. Players taking part in the first season of the show are Nick Kyrigos, Matteo Berrettini, Taylor Fritz, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Thanasi Kokkinakis, Casper Ruud from the ATP and Paula Badosa, Ons Jabeur, Maria Sakkari and Ajla Tomljanovic from the WTA.

These shows quickly appealed to core fans of golf and tennis, and also recruited brand new fans from all around the world. Like so much of our growing sports slate, the compelling characters, competitive stakes, and vibrant storytelling reveal sides of the game you’ve never seen before, and we’re excited to follow the unpredictable turns of the year ahead.
