I aint seen it, but much respect is due to him for what he has done with his

He came from nothing and gave his familly a great start in life.

And they are both greats in the sport of tennis.

Much respect

I have seen it
I dunno if its called good parenting though
he wanted 2 boys
but got 2 girls
his whole goal was to raise two boys who were good at tennis, instead he rasied two girls who were
he didnt give them a choice, it was more "tennis or death"
of course they are good at tennis, but they were brought up playing it in the same way communists train their circus performers
but I guess if you agree with communism then it aint no thang
plus he did put all his money into their training, he got it back 100 fold though
more of a smart business man than good father

the movie is very good

it shows what good parenting and love can do in extreme situations

people hate it when we do good

but they don't see themselves
