Guillermo Vilas: Settling the Score is a documentary film that follows the story of tennis legend Guillermo Vilas, who for more than 40 years demanded a revision of the rankings so he’d be recognized as No. 1 in the world. It’s also the story of a sports journalist, Eduardo Puppo, who took on Vilas fight as a personal one, and started a crusade that lasted more than 10 years against one of the biggest sports corporations in order to prove that Vilas was effectively and unfairly displaced from the top spot in global tennis. Puppo’s work takes us deep into his research that reviews all of the results for the male tennis global rankings between 1973 and 1978.
