Should You Stream it or Skip it?
The Story revolves around the Humpty Dumpty Career of American Tennis Player Mardy Fish. Still, we’ll get it wrong if we centralize him as the pivotal point because the story is a duo tale. The onset of Mardy’s tennis career started most inextricably. However, it was very different from that of Famer Andy Roddick’s International Tennis Hall. Roddick and Mardy played together in the youth sports academics, traveled along with each other, did training together, and in short, were best of friends.
Andy Roddick had a mixture of fierce competitiveness and nonchalant composure that proved to be a green flag for his career in Tennis whereas, on the other hand, Mardy Fish’s career was uncertain. Roddick rose to fame after his tremendous win in the US Open. However, Mardy still struggled to cope up with his professional career and his mental well-being.
Then there came a turning point in the life of Mardy, and the biggest flex of his life was to become lean, intense, and ready to fight. He worked out, was on a diet, and finally changed his body. Mardy felt good about himself, and this small change proved beneficial for his career where he finally rose in his career and defeated many invincible luminaries such as Roddick, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal. He became the 7th Best Tennis Player in the list of Top 30 through hard work and perseverance.
However, destiny planned something else for Mardy as his deteriorating health because of hectic schedules and the pressure to be at the Top always haunted him. Horrific enough, he got a cardiac arrest in 2012, eventually leading him to pull his name out of the 2012 French Open. Mardy, who always fought and endeavored to become the best player and to see his name as the Top 1, is now fighting to get rid of his illness and stay alive for longer periods.
Many inspirational and motivational dialogues undoubtedly back the Episode, and it becomes difficult to choose any one of them. People always disregard or ignore the pressures players have to deal with besides the difficulties in the game itself. And through this episode, it is highlighted yet again that Mental Health is as important as Physical Wellness. Nothing can take the place of Mental Health. The Story highlights the intense starvation to become the Top Player and the preparation for it.
Even Andy Roddick has been framed as a guy who got everything, including fame, money with his cool nature, and aggressive competitiveness. However, we should also analyze the other side of the story. Not to forget Mardy Fish’s biopic in his own words, which can prove beneficial, inspirational, heart touching, and motivational to all those who at some point of time have been a victim of Mental Illness, Depression or Anxiety, or are dealing with it.
We Suggest y’all definitely go and STREAM IT because it is worth watching, and if you’re a Tennis Player or an Ardent Fan, then it’s a Cherry on the Cake. But, on the other hand, if you want to embrace Mental Health, then it’s a big thumbs up for the movie.
