- Come on!

- Out!

And here we go.

Aaron Williams, one point away from

ending this outrageous seven-day match.

On this, his 67th match point.

He can end it all with one serve.


A weak 30-mph serve into the net.

Seven days of play really taking

its toll on everyone here.

Please end it.

Please end it.

F*ck, no.

- Jesus.

- Oh, this is killing me.

The Williams-Poole match.

It wasn't even a match. It was...

It was something else.

It was two men stuck in eternal flames.

- Deuce.

- Yeah, I know it's deuce.

We all know it's deuce, man.

It was...

seven days in hell.

It was the most spectacular

match in tennis history.

But to fully understand

how these two men got here,

we must first know where they came from.

Aaron Williams, thank you

for sitting down with us.

- My pleasure.

- You're known as the "bad boy" of tennis.

No. You know what?

F*ck this and f*ck you.

Aaron Williams does not play "country club"

tennis because he's from the streets.

I mean, literally.

He was left on a street by his mother

and then was adopted by Richard Williams,

father of Serena and Venus.

Well, with Aaron

it was a reverse "Blind Side."

You know, a rich white family gets a

black kid and makes him play football.

Well, we flipped it.

My dad, he took a white kid

and made him play tennis.

Like his sisters, Aaron quickly

rose to the top of the game.

But the number-one ranking eluded him.

His personal life, however,

has shined bright since his arrival to fame.

We could go months without talking to him.

He'd hang around a lot in Vegas, spending a lot

of time with Rod Stewart and some magician.

Well, it was me, Aaron Williams and Rod Stewart

going out every night for about 10 years,

crushing pussy and making money.

Aaron's chance to become the

top-ranked player in the world

finally came at the '96 Wimbledon finals.

What happened at Wimbledon '96

completely changed the trajectory

of Aaron Williams' life.

Will he do it? At 25 years old

finally win Wimbledon and grab

that number-one ranking he so desires?

Can he do it?

Can he beat the Belgian, Jens Goossens?


- Three points away now.

- Here comes the guitar.

He is gunning for that title.

- 30-love.

- Another ace.

Are you kidding me?

148 miles per hour.

He's like, on another planet right now.

After those three aces,

there wasn't one person

who didn't think that

a four-bagger was coming.

And with it, a new tennis champion.

But what came next was

something quite different.

Here we go.

Championship point.

It appears he just whispered to himself,

"This is how we do it."

The hit Montell Jordan song that Aaron

sung backup vocals on this year.


Oh, jeez.

This is not good.

We just hope he's all right.

You knew right away he was dead.

My Lord, I've never seen anything like this.

It was one of the great

tragedies of all time

and, technically,

it wasn't the impact that killed him.

But the impact gave him a heart

attack and that killed him.

So if you ask me, did Aaron kill him?

I'd say kinda.

The silver lining to that man's death

is that Aaron had set a...

a new speed record for a serve.

If the pressure of winning

Wimbledon wasn't enough,

now he's got a dead body on his hands.

Aaron probably should have

forfeited after killing a guy.

But he didn't because he's an asshole.

Second serve now, after killing a man.

Not a good sign for Williams.

Aaron lost, but remarkably,

killing a man and losing his

greatest shot at Wimbledon

and the number-one ranking still wasn't

as low as he would sink that day.

Let us start with a moment of silence
