American tennis professional Reilly Opelka recently reacted to Netflix's tennis docuseries 'Break Point' being renewed for its second season.

Break Point is produced by the same production house, Box-to-Box Films, which is behind the acclaimed series 'Drive to Survive'. It was released in early 2023 and showcased some behind-the-scenes footage of players such as Nick Kyrgios, Maria Sakkari, Taylor Fritz, among others.

The first season also featured interviews with Martina Navratilova and Maria Sharapova. The first five episodes were released in January, with the remaining five to be released in June later this year.

The 'Full Swing' series, which debuted on the streaming platform last month and highlights the highs and lows of the professional golf tour, was also renewed. The second season of the tennis series is scheduled for release in 2024.

"These shows quickly appealed to core fans of golf and tennis, and also recruited brand new fans from all around the world,” said Brandon Riegg, VP, Unscripted and Documentary Series, Netflix. “Like so much of our growing sports slate, the compelling characters, competitive stakes, and vibrant storytelling reveal sides of the game you’ve never seen before, and we’re excited to follow the unpredictable turns of the year ahead.”

Opelka, 25, reacted to the news of the series' renewal and joked about the same on Instagram.

"How did Cobra Kai get cancelled and this is renewed? Season 1 was booboo."

Reilly Opelka expects to return to tennis soon

Reilly Opelka, one of the tallest players to ever play the sport, has been sidelined since August 2022. At the Cincinnati Masters, the American lost to Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios in the second round of the event. Since then, the former World No. 17 has gone under the knife for his hip injury.

Opelka, however, is very active on social media, voicing out his opinion in many cases, often earning appreciation as well as critics. He recently posted a picture of his sponsor Fila's newest line on social media on Monday.

While expressing his disappointment at not wearing the outfit this year, he hoped to return to tennis very soon.

"Wishing I could be rocking @filatennis Tie Breaker collection in the desert this year, but hoping to see you all on court 🔜," Reilly Opelka captioned the post.

Opelka's compatriot Taylor Fritz reflected on the former's absence from the tour and called it "awful" that the 25-year-old has been out for such a long time.
