WATCH: Maria Sakkari will feature heavily in the first bloc of Break Point episodes, which drop on Netflix 13 January.


Tennis has enjoyed a Golden Era that has spanned over two decades, replete with record-breaking champions and unforgettable stars. The makers of Break Point, a Netflix docuseries debuting its first bloc of episodes on January 13, look to answer an ostensibly simple question: “Who’s next?”

Break Point follows an intriguing group of rising stars from the start of a consequential 2022 season, which saw retirements from both Roger Federer and Serena Willias. The series begins Down Under for that year’s Australian Open featuring a hometown trio of Thanasi Kokkinakis, Nick Kyrgios, and Ajla Tomljanovic.

“The expectation for me to be the next big thing is massive,” says Kyrgios, who partners Kokkinakis for an unforgettable run in men’s doubles.

As Break Point brings a behind-the-scenes look at the ups and downs the next generation faces—episodes will also feature Matteo Berrettini, Maria Sakkari, Taylor Fritz, Paula Badosa, Ons Jabeur, Félix Auger-Aliassime, and Casper Ruud—past greats like Andy Roddick and Maria Sharapova weigh in on their chances for Grand Slam success and what it took to become legendary champions.

“Your body doesn’t know what it’s about to face,” says Sharapova, who retired from tennis in 2020.
