"The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose. "
Above is the opening quote to Match Point. A quote that I 100% agree with.
You definitely need luck in life.
If you've been following me on Twitter, you'd know all I've been doing lately is watching tennis and watching movies about tennis. I recently watched Match Point, directed by one of my favorite directors Woody Allen who also directed the newly released Midnight In Paris which premiered at Cannes. I saw that in theatres Saturday night and thought it was fantastic. If you're not doing anything on this memorial day (happy memorial day!) I highly suggest you watch it!
