MATCH POINT

A tennis story, this takes young, short (14 and only 5' 2"") Jake Brown all the way up to win the Boys' National Tournament in Kalamazoo. With height as his main problem and graceful, vicious Lyn Okarza as his main opponent, Jake has a hard time when he loses the match to greater physical ability and is unjustly disqualified. But when Dink Evans, a friend of Jake's dead father, takes the boy on and coaches him, in confidence as well as technique, the way is clear to victory. However, a strident and repetitious narrative takes a lot of the crispness out of the play.
