Wimbledonis a 2004 romantic comedy film directed by Richard Loncraine . The film centres on a washed-up tennis pro named Peter Colt (played by Paul Bettany ) and an up-and-coming tennis star named Lizzie Bradbury (played by Kirsten Dunst ) during the Wimbledon Championships.

The film was dedicated to Mark McCormack , who died on 16 May 2003 after suffering cardiac arrest four months earlier.

The story was inspired by Goran Ivanišević , a Croatian tennis player who won Wimbledon in 2001 , becoming the only player to win men's singles at Wimbledon with a wildcard entry.[citation needed]

Peter Colt ( Paul Bettany ) is a journeyman English professional tennis player ranked 119th in the world. He earns a wildcard spot to the Wimbledon tournament . Tired of it all, he resolves to quit after this last tournament, and even gets a job to coach tennis at a country club. However, as Wimbledon begins, Peter meets and falls in love with Lizzie Bradbury ( Kirsten Dunst ), a young, brilliant, American tennis pro. As their love grows, Peter's game becomes better and better and he wins his semi-final match in straight sets—whilst Lizzie loses hers, having lost her focus after a night together with Peter. Peter begins playing the final match against Jake Hammond ( Austin Nichols ), an arrogant American star who Peter has already had an argument with involving Lizzie, but finds himself outclassed. Lizzie, on her way home to America, sees an interview in which Peter apologises, and comes back to Wimbledon. With Lizzie cheering him on, Peter wins the title, and retires. He and Lizzie marry, and Lizzie goes on to win the U.S. Open and Wimbledon twice. In the last scene Peter is with his and Lizzie's youngest child, a boy, watching Lizzie and their eldest child, a girl, play tennis together on a neighborhood court in New York City.
