Netflix Break Point Stars Reunite!
Are you excited for the next batch of Break Point Season 1 episodes? The next five installments of Netflix’s hit tennis series will be released in June, but some of the show’s stars reunited to recap what is out there so far.
Felix Auger-Aliassime, Paula Badosa, Matteo Berrettini, Taylor Fritz, Casper Ruud and Maria Sakkari gathered to discuss some of the most memorable moments from the first five episodes.
“Walking here before we even got here I said, ‘This is what we’re going to be talking about,’” Fritz said.
What was he referring to? Matteo Berrettini’s messy hotel room!
“It was actually better. It could have been worse,” Berrettini said. “There were like, ‘No we love this.’ I was like, ‘Okay if you love it, I love it.’”
The group spoke about many topics from the show, including Rafael Nadal’s intimidating pre-match warmup, when he often does a series of short sprints in front of his opponents. Break Point brought viewers behind the scenes of when he did that last year at Roland Garros.
“I knew it was going to happen and I knew he was going to pull it out or do it, but it didn’t really make a difference,” Ruud said. “I mean obviously he killed me and destroyed me, but I don’t think it was because he did those steps in the locker room… I don’t think it was because of that to put it this way. So people might think that, but I don’t think that.”
There were also deeper topics broached, including mental health. Badosa explained why she was willing to open up in front of the cameras.
“I tried to be very honest, to express myself, the fears that I had and have,” Badosa said. “We hit balls but I think it’s much more. The 90 per cent on and off court, so many things [in] this sport [are] so mental. So I just wanted to maybe normalise the situation a little bit more.”
The reunion also featured the Break Point Awards. Who is most likely to have a reality TV career? Who is most natural on camera? Who is most likely to rewatch their episode 10 times?
