Zendaya is set to grace the big screen this week in the romantic sports film Challengers, directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by Justin Kuritzkes. Starring as Tashi Duncan alongside co-stars Art (Mike Faist) and Patrick (Josh O'Connor), the movie delves into a love triangle involving a professional tennis player and former rivals.

Originally scheduled for release in September 2023, Challengers will now hit UK cinemas on Friday, April 26 due to Hollywood disruptions. Zendaya's character Duncan is described as a fierce competitor both on and off the court.

Ahead of the film's release, the Spider-Man actress shared an interesting anecdote about the lead actresses in the Spider-Man series also portraying tennis players on screen.

Could this be a prophecy she needs to fulfill?

Challengers follows three players competing in a tournament to become a grand slam winner and rekindle old rivalries. The focus is on Zendaya's character Toshi Dunkan, who takes center stage in her first leading film role.

Zendaya and her co-stars recently appeared on Good Morning America, where they discussed the cycle of lead actresses in Spider-Man also becoming tennis stars in later roles. From Kirsten Dunst to Emma Stone, the pattern seems to continue with Zendaya taking on the challenge in Challengers.

While tennis may not be her forte, Zendaya's iconic looks and strong performance in Challengers suggest she is set for success in this new venture.
