Yep I watched it. It was pretty good. It was about being on the tennis tour. It was filmed and produced by Mark Keil and Geoff Grant, who were both tennis pros. It had some really interesting parts, especially the ones behind the scenes. It pretty much showed everything, even how they lived off the circuit.

My favourite part was when Mark Keil was filming Philippoussis and Gambill in the lounge room. Philippoussis and Gambill were checkin out cars on the Internet, and they were arguing about the speed of a Jaguar....Mark Keil came up to them, this is exactly what they said....

Philippoussis : (standing up behind Gambill with a Diet Pepsi in his hand) "He reckons that the Jaguar XKJ220 goes top speed of 218 miles an hour. They tested a Maclaren and the factory estimated a top speed close to 230 but it actually got it up to 213 or 214. And he reckons his jaguar is gonna go 218. I bet him anything there's no fucking chance the thing can go past 210."

Gambill : (sitting down controlling the computer) "Eat shit!"

Philippoussis : "What? That's what the factory says. If they did a fuckin test..."(Gambill interrupts Philippoussis)

Gambill : "The car will do 220 miles an hour...I guaran-fuckin-tee it..."

Philippoussis: "The Maclaren says 230 and it only did 214. That's just the factory thing..."

Gambill : It is not!

Philippoussis : Yes it is!

Gambill then starts laughing.....

This part was pretty funny...I didn't think pros talked liked this to eachother. Of course it was all in good fun...nuthin serious.

Then they started arguing about which car was better -- the 1994 Jaguar XKJ220 (which Gambill liked) or the 1995 Ferrari F50(which Philippoussis liked)...

Mark : (holding a magazine to the camera) OK, this car (pointing to the Jaguar with his mobile phone) or this car (pointing to the Ferrari)???? This one, a fuckin bridge, faggy XKJ220 (referring to Jaguar), or the fucken Italian Ferrari F50.

Jan Michael : This ones got all little dents in the car. (talkin about Ferrari)

Mark : That's what u call _______...... (dont know the word). What do u reckon (asking Mark Keil).

Jan Michael : What? Do u want it to have dents on it, or do u want it to be smooth like the car here.....

----------------------------

There was a part where Mark Keil was playing a doubles match with Ivanisevic in the Aussie Open...On a changeover, Goran was getting frustrated...."We're down 6-3, 2-3...Things are not too good, we can't hit a fucking return"....

---------------------------

Then Mark Keil also interviewed Agassi and one of his questions was 'What do u think about sex before a match? Do u think it's a good thing? If so, how much? The night before? A day? An hour? 10 minutes?'

Andre : Ummmm.....sex doesn't interfere with tennis. It's staying out all night trying to find it. That affects your tennis (laughs). So I think that, um, quite honestly, I personally feel like I'm a little lighter in my shoes. It makes me move a little bit quicker, it makes me feel like a stud.

---------------------------

Then when they were in Miami for the Lipton Championships, they were in the locker room. Philippoussis was there again and he took his shirt off. He showed off the muscles in his arms, then they asked him about his tattoo.

Keil : Wow, where'd u get that? Alexander the Great...

Philippoussis : I got it this time last year in Florida, in Sarasota, where I live

Keil : Why'd u get Alexander the Great???

Philippoussis : He was fucken the conqueror of the world...He was fucken Greek...(long pause)...and he was gay (laughs)

Keil : (Laughs long)

Philippoussis : I was hoping to conquer him, but not the gay part....(Acting gay) It's starting to go through my blood cells. (laughs)....

--------------------------

Also in Miami, there was a scene in the tunnel. Mark Keil walking down the tunnel while filming, and Kournikova was walking just a couple steps ahead of him...

Mark K. : Anna! Hey Anna!

Anna : (turns around to see who's calling her, but doesn't stop walking) Hey, what's up??

Mark K. : When are we gonna play mixed doubles, Anna?

Anna : (Laughs)

Mark K. : C'mon...throw me the ball now. I wanna play mixed with ya.

Anna : (Says nothing. Keeps walking....then turns right to a door)

Mark K. : Hey Anna, where ya going?

Anna: I'm leaving u.

Mark K. : Come talk to me, please.

Anna : Nope...

Mark K. : Please, Anna!

Anna : (goes inside the door and shuts it. The door read "QUALIFIERS, PLEASE USE CLUBHOUSE LOCKER ROOMS" Of course, Mark couldn't go in coz he was a qualifier)

Mark K. : Ohhh....shucks!

-------------------

I think Mark Keil had a reputation of being a bit of a loser, but he was okay with people.

This post is getting long. If u get the chance to see it, watch it...It's good....it also has Rafter, Becker, Courier, Henman, Rosset and more!

what night is it on and what time?

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

Erm Martina-I don't think she was on there, I can only remember Anna K being on it, but then again it's been 2 years since I watched it so maybe I'm not the best judge-lol!

Perth didn't get the show. We got the South Park movie instead. Lol.
