Played out under the bright lights of the U.S. Open Semifinals, The Last Match pits rising Russian star Sergei Sergeyev against American great Tim Porter in an epic showdown that follows two tennis titans through pivotal moments in their lives both on-and-off the court. This gripping, fast-paced story captures the intense world of competitive sports, and human rivalry, and what it means to want something — and the lengths we will go to in order to feel relevant, important and young.
”The match is a nail-biter, even as Ziegler pauses to eavesdrop on the men’s thoughts, memories and interactions with the women in the stands.” — The New Yorker
"Swells with intensity and poetic undertones as it courses through 90 minutes…asking big questions about the human condition.” — Stage and Cinema
