Join us for the world premiere of WCT: The Road to Open Tennis, a documentary about the trailblazing tennis tour that accelerated the growth of pro tennis worldwide.
WCT: The Road to Open Tennis traces the tour's early years of the "The Handsome Eight" through the climactic 1972 championship in Dallas between Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall, which became known as the "greatest match of all time." The five-set battle played out before a packed stadium and a record TV audience of 23 million viewers, signaling to the world that tennis was well on its way to becoming a viable, exciting pro sport.
