Thread: Resurfacing - film on Prime from Friday 29th November

    Re: Resurfacing - film on Prime from Friday 29th November

    Just watched it on my laptop, as it didn't work on the iPad. I enjoyed it and shed a few tears, along the way. I remembered being there for him when he won the 2012 Olympic gold medal. Also, being there for when he won Wimbledon twice. I believe there is still more to come for him for next year.

    Gave it a second watch this afternoon. Loved it just as much second time around and spotted lots of little details I missed first time. Also have fallen in love with Andy's house

    A question about the film and Andy - there was a reference to Andy being upset with the press after the way they were reporting something - what was about? Can any of you remember?

    I think it was in the period around summer 2018 when there was a lot of speculation in the press - would Andy play Wimbledon & how had was the injury really. I think he felt pressure to provide answers when he didn't really have any to give at that point

    Ah, this was the hardest bit for me to watch. He was going through hell, physically and emotionally, yet the press (and not just them) wouldn't just leave him alone and give him the time and peace he craved. He said that the other British players were doing well and the press should have been focussing on them, but instead they were hounding him for an announcement about the grass season so they could turn it into a huge drama if he said yes but then had to withdraw. The section was filmed in his home gym, and he's wearing a white t-shirt. Sorry don't know the exact time, but it's quite a way in. I found it very tough to watch, far more so than the gruesome bits. He looked and sounded so sad and frustrated - pain and injury is inevitable the hassling wasn't. After everything he's given the tennis world, it couldn't repay him in the most basic way while he was suffering. He deserved a lot better.

    On a brighter note, I thought it was a brilliant, raw documentary that provided an utterly compelling insight into an incredible person and competitor. I definitely could have only watched it knowing he had a happy ending though!
