Taylor Fritz, the highest-ranked American tennis player, was featured in a recent documentary trailer. However, his comments in the documentary didn’t sit well with the fans.
The 26-year-old American tennis star features in a recently released trailer of the tennis documentary, ‘Breaking Point: Season 2’. It is a Netflix documentary whose trailer was released earlier on Friday. Netflix announced the trailer on all its social media platforms. The documentary is set to release on January 10th, 2023.
The American started his 2023 season on a high note with a victory in the first-ever United Cup. However, the rest of the year saw the American’s performance fall short of the outstanding levels he achieved in 2022.
His expectations from the 2023 season were justified, but since he could not deliver on his own expectations and promises, the fans have decided to turn on him and ridicule him for his high and mighty claims.
Some fans on X (formerly known as Twitter) and Reddit tore apart his quotes in the comment section with sarcastic and borderline disrespectful comments.
One of the fans wrote this on Reddit’s r/Tennis discussion thread :
“What a cringefest. The Fritz part made me lol”.
Other fans on 𝕏 also reacted similarly. One of them compared Taylor’s comments to the ‘Target’ company’s logo on a shirt.
I hate to break it to you Taylor, but there is no target on your back.— MSSTLOVER2023 (@21Tnslover) December 29, 2023
If Fritz is any sort of focal point of the show then there’s the biggest reason I’m avoiding it. Good lord— Tennis World (Mike) (@secondserves) December 28, 2023
Fritz is set to kick off his 2024 season at the United Cup, as Team USA works towards defending their title and being reigning champions again.
“It’s not only you’re not getting points at the Olympics, you’re actually losing.”, Taylor Fritz demands the Olympic points system to be reincarnated
In a United Cup Press conference, Taylor Fritz talked about team-oriented events and even suggested improvements for the Olympics’ tennis event to make it more meaningful for the players.
Taylor Fritz pointed out the standard points system used in the regular tennis season that does not apply to the Olympics. He said that this difference can lead to some players unfairly missing out on points they could have earned in alternative competitions during that period.
“I think playing for your country is enough, but if you take [that] away, then there’s no other tournaments during the Olympics. It’s not only you’re not getting points at the Olympics, you’re actually losing. You’re actually losing points. I’m defending a title that week. I lose that.”
