Rakuten TV announced today the upcoming premiere of Break Point: A Davis Cup Story, the documentary about the oldest and largest international tennis team competition.
The documentary, a Kosmos Studios production, reviews the last edition of the tournament, held in Madrid in 2019, in which Spain was proclaimed champion for the sixth time and which presented a completely remodeled format, with a final phase with 18 teams and held in just one week.
Break Point: A Davis Cup Story focuses on the stories of the two finalist teams of the competition: Spain and Canada.
The Spanish seniority, with Nadal as number 1 and four Davis Cup titles in his record, against the youth of the Canadian team, led by the 20-year-old Denis Shapovalov, who had the opportunity to win the first Davis Cup for his country.
For both teams, the 2019 Davis Cup was full of emotions, with the losses of some of their main players due to injury or even withdrawn during the competition.
The documentary also tells, in an emotional way, Roberto Bautista’s personal story, who after temporarily leaving the competition due to the death of his father, returned to support his team, played the final and brought the victory for Spain.
Break Point: A Davis Cup Story will be available for free and exclusively on Rakuten TV from 26th November.
