If you recreated the Lee-Hesh chest bump in school, you had an amazing childhood. What an era. ❤️

Popularly known as Lee-Hesh, the pair won 16 titles together and created history by entering the finals of four successive Grand Slams in 1999. They won the French Open and Wimbledon and went on to become the world No. 1. Their chest-bumps are remembered so fondly by their fans and tennis lovers in general. The release of this film has made many people nostalgic about their childhood. What led the hit pair to drift apart was never spoken about openly about the two sportsmen themselves? This led many to come up with conjectures. With Break Point, the curtain on the episode of their drift that deepened from 1996-2001, has been lifted.
