Since 2019, the American giant Netflix has been offering F1 fans (and everyone else) an exceptional docu-series: F1 Drive to Survive. A few months ago, Netflix formalized the start of a similar documentary, but this time focused on the Tour de France. Before that, in a few days, a new tennis series will be offered by Netflix, and the latter obviously hopes to be able to enjoy a similar success to that of Drive to Survive.
After F1 on Netflix, make way for tennis!
At the start of 2023, on January 16, the tennis season will officially kick off with the Australian Open. An ideal window of opportunity for the American giant Netflix, which will put its brand new docu-series online: Break Point. Netflix recently formalized the title of this new series, which will consist of a total of ten episodes.
We already know that the first 5 episodes will focus on the Melbourne, Indian Well, Madrid and Roland Garros tournaments, while the next five will return to Wimbledon, Eastbourne, Queens Club, the US Open, and the end of WTA and ATP season. If the first five episodes will be available in January, we will have to wait until June to discover the epilogue of this first season of Break Point.

Obviously, we will find in the cast many players who have made the year 2022 in terms of tennis, starting with Nick Kyrgios, Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitsipas, but also Ajla Tomljanovic, Paula Badosa, Thanasi Kokkinakis or even Aryna Sabalenka.
The series will also find Serena Williams and Roger Federer, both 41 years old and having ended their careers, not to mention Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. After F1 and Golf, Netflix is counting on tennis to boost its offer of exclusive documentaries.
In addition to the need to strengthen its catalog, in order to maintain its leading position in the streaming market, Netflix is also forced to adapt its subscriptions. Recently, the platform launched an offer with advertisements, which seems to be a real success. Even though the American giant remains a must in the market, competition has been increasingly fierce in recent years, with Amazon Video of course, but also Disney+, without forgetting more recently HBO Max and finally Paramount+.
