Aaron Williams is considered "The Bad Boy of Tennis." He was found on the streets and adopted by Richard Williams, who raised Aaron with his daughters, Venus and Serena Williams. He begins to engage in risky behavior with Rod Stewart and David Copperfield when his tennis career takes off. At the 1996 Wimbledon Finals, on his championship point, his serve hits a line judge, who has an immediate heart attack and dies. Williams falters and loses the championship. At the ceremony following the match, Williams lashes out and pushes Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent(Howie Mandel), and disappears.

Charles Poole is a child prodigy. While physically gifted and being very attractive, Poole was forced into a tennis career by his mother (Mary Steenburgen), who sped his education along by sending him to a vocational school where he earned a degree as a truck driver. Thus, Poole is very dim-witted and his mother threatens to disown him if he loses. He appears on a local show hosted by Caspian Wint (Michael Sheen) as a 15 year old and is on track to become the youngest professional tennis player in history. He tells Wint that he idolizes Aaron Williams. [wiki]

Latest Presidential Poll Shows Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton in Head to Head Contest

If this turns out to be the case, it's good news for another reason, aside from the obvious.  Thirty years ago I calculated that 28% of us would vote Vladimir Lenin for president.  By that calculus it appears we've degenerated by a scant 2%; much lower than I'd have guessed.
