Editorial Reviews

SPORTS ILLUSTRATED "one of the more audacious sports documentaries in recent years." "a glimpse of men's tennis beyond the usual vanilla postmatch press conferences."

"The Journeymen" is the first modern behind-the-scenes documentary that captures the sub-culture of modern professional tennis. Mark Keil and Geoff Grant, pro tennis veterans, were able to go where no sports journalist could dream of going: to document their struggle to survive on one of the most demanding professional tours in the world. Their real life situations are interspersed with interviews. conversations and moments with every top player in the men's pro tennis game. Some of the stars include their friends and opponents Andre Agassi, Goran Ivanisevic and Patrick Rafter. This "Endless Summer" on the pro tennis tour takes us across the globe and across "The Journeymen" of the little known reality of professional men's tennis

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and Amusing January 2, 2014

An interesting story of two tennis 'Journeymen’, Mark and Geoff, who are trying to make enough money to stay on tour. It’s great to see a movie told from this angle, not from the typical ‘I’m a star look at me’ usual bore fest. The movie shows the difference between being at the top of the tree to being pretty good, just not quite good enough to be a real super star.

The guys also get great access to some of tennis’ big name stars who are very candid, perhaps because they didn’t think this movie would get made?

What makes the movie most enjoyable, like any good documentary, is that you start to feel an emotional connection to the people in the movie and you want them to succeed.

Tennis is overdue for another movie like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD! June 18, 2008
I have seen several documentaries about the tennis pro tour over the years but this one is definitely the best so far. These 2 players did a GREAT job giving us a behind the scenes look at how it is for the players who struggle to make it in tennis. By the way, I was laughing throughout most of this film. GREAT WORK Mark and Geoff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quixotic journey!! February 24, 2008
Other than the fact that he sells his fairly successful career a bit short, Mark Keil presents an extremely entertaining behind the scenes glimpse at the pro circuit and the struggle to hang on. Mark is currently working with my son as his coach and has said many times, to make it on the tour you either have to be dirt poor and sponsored by someone, or filthy rich and bankrolled by your folks. The odds of seeing another middle class champion down the road are very thin. This point seems to be well documented in this wonderful film. He's a great guy, super coach and you need to check out his new column on Tennis Grandstand, at [..]
