Richard Alonzo "Pancho" Gonzalez, a Mexican-American youth with no formal tennis training broke the color and class barriers in the late 1940s. Until 1968 he was relatively unknown. In 1969, when already a grandfather, he played one of Wimbledon's longest matches. He was the best tennis player in the world from 1952 to 1961, ranked in the top ten from 1948 to 1969. Gonzalez is the original spelling of his last name, but he adopted Gonzales at a later date. Special features include Pancho's personality, Pancho's game, Pancho's legacy, commentary from the filmmakers.
