At 85 years old, Bollettieri is a living legend who raised a generation of champions at the renowned Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Jim Courier, Monica Seles, Maria Sharapova and Andre Agassi were only a few of his famous students, and no other coach has matched his success, dominance or fame.

His greatness, though, came at a terrible price. Broken marriages, financial ruin and perhaps most devastating, a fractured relationship with his surrogate son and most cherished student, Andre Agassi. When Agassi refused to participate in a documentary about his ex-coach, a simple biographical film turned into an investigation of a relationship lost. Love Means Zero not only tells the story of this celebrated yet controversial coach, but also explores the cost of his all-consuming drive for greatness.
