Taylor Fritz has been among the first players to give his impressions of the filming process for the Netflix docu-series Break Point.

Fritz says that the filming proved far less intrusive than he expected it to be going in.

The new series premiered on Netflix on Friday 13 January 2022.

Speaking about the experience to ATPTOUR.com, Fritz said: “I feel like it was a lot less time-consuming, hands-on than I thought it was going to be.

“I thought I was going to have to get used to having a camera around me at all times. But it was really just at tournaments here and there, nothing at home or anything like that. It was a lot more chill than I thought it was going to be.

Fritz didn’t feel that the filming of the Netflix series was any sort of burden considering the other demands made on the top players.

He didn’t feel that the series detracted from his game at all.

“It wasn’t much of a compromise. I just did what I had to do and they were just there. I wanted to be extremely authentic so there wasn’t really much of me doing things specifically for the crew asides from more of the interview portions, which were very easy. [We just did them at] a time that was convenient for me. Just give an hour, just talk to the camera.

Fritz feels that the breakout star of the series might just be his physio Wolfgang ‘Wolf’ Oswald.

“I’m sure they liked Wolf a lot,” he said.

“Wolf talks a lot and I’m sure he was always excited to just do whatever he could do to help them. Hopefully he didn’t talk their ears off!”

Fritz added that he will watch the series, but won’t be super keen to see himself on screen.

“I don’t necessarily want to watch myself, but I don’t know,” Fritz said.

“I feel like I’m going to have to watch it, but I wouldn’t say I’m necessarily excited to see myself or watch myself.
