Match Point

March 10, 2006

French dad has a habit of slipping mickeys into the water bottles of his children’s tennis opponents. His shenanigans, meant to give his kids the upper hand, end up killing people. Oops!

In spite of the fact that their opponents stagger, yawn, and otherwise collapse on court, the children maintain great confidence in their tennis abilities:

“Tired girls yes, I saw them. But nothing more than that. I never needed anyone to help me win.”

Les enfants beg the judges to go soft on Dad:

Valentine, one of France’s most promising young players… asked the court to show mercy, saying he had done what he did out of love.

Ah, oui. Amour!
