Tennis is abuzz with tongue-in-cheek talk about a “Netflix curse” during the Australian Open.
There are folks drawing a line from the streaming service's new docuseries about the sport to the recent rough times for Season 1 protagonists.
Only one of the 10 players featured prominently across the five episodes released last week remains in the singles competition at Melbourne Park heading into Saturday.
That is Felix Auger-Aliassime. He is a 22-year-old from Canada who said he hadn't heard of the supposed “curse” until his girlfriend mentioned it to him Friday.
