Episode 6 - Belonging

Wimbledon is the cathedral of tennis, and with its all-white dress code and royal traditions, the oldest Grand Slam represents the pinnacle of the sport for fans and players alike. After his doubles win at the Australian Open, Nick Kyrgios enters the 2022 tournament ready to prove that he can finally reach his singles potential. On the women's side, Ajla Tomljanovic needs to overcome her personal and professional heartbreaks to master her mental game once and for all. As they win their way through the early rounds, both Kyrgios and Tomljanovic will lean on their fathers for encouragement and support. But when one player challenges the tournament's high standards of decorum, will it cost them everything?

Episode 7 - Saints and Sinners

As Wimbledon 2022 rolls on, two unconventional players are making history on its pristine grass courts. Women's No. 2 Ons Jabeur broke through with a life-changing win in Madrid earlier in the season; now, she's carrying the hopes of the entire African continent as she pursues her first Grand Slam. Nick Kyrgios, meanwhile continues to play brilliantly through a cloud of scandal, and he's learning to use his temper as a tool to throw opponents off their game. In the final, Jabeur's finesse comes under attack from Elena Rybakina's massive serve, while Kyrgios goes head to head with defending champion Novak Djokovic, a patient, methodical giant who's unlikely to be perturbed by chaos.

Episode 8 - Fairytale in New York

The streets of New York City are always buzzing for the last Grand Slam of the year. But the 2022 U.S. Open is more electric than usual: Serena Williams announced she would retire at the end of the tourney, and the media frenzy surrounding her is at a fever pitch. It's a nightmare for Serena's opponents, but for Ajla Tomljanovic, it's a chance to prove she's found the mental strength to play up to her potential. When the two women go head to head in a third round match, not only does Tomljanovic have to beat the G.O.A.T. to move on - she has to do it in front of 24,000 screaming fans rooting for her to fail.

Episode 9 - Under Pressure

The young guns continue to shine at the U.S. Open, as women's No. 1 Iga Swiatek, men's No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz, and men's No. 22 Frances Tiafoe reach the quarter finals. Swiatek has an incredible eight titles and 37 consecutive wins coming into this tournament, but the noise of New York City - and the Open's raucous crowd - could throw her off her game. For Tiafoe, it's the chance to achieve a lifelong dream that started on the courts of a Maryland tennis center, where his father, an immigrant from Sierra Leone, worked on the maintenance staff. He's got a chance to become the first American man to win the Open trophy in almost 20 years, but can he make it past Rafael Nadal?

Episode 10 - One Last Chance

The 2022 season draws to a close with the ATP/WTA Finals, in which the top eight men and women compete for a huge payday. Taylor Fritz gets a last minute call to join the men's tournament in Turin after an injury to Carlos Alcaraz - but he'll have to play back-to-back matches against Nadal and Djokovic to prove he belongs there. At the women's tourney in Ft. Worth, Aryna Sabalenka is trying to end the hardest year of her career on a high note - but to reach the final, she'll need to take down Iga Swiatek, the seemingly unstoppable No. 1. The odds are against her, and there's only one thing Sabalenka knows for sure: when in trouble, hit harder.
