In a recent interview, Zendaya explained her reasons for not attending the Met Gala.
I don't want to disappoint my fans, but I will be working," Zendaya said to Additional. "Your girl has to get up and do some work,
so I wish everyone all the best. While I won't be playing tennis, I will return to it eventually... I'll continue to deliver in other ways.
Zendaya refers to Challengers in which she will play a coach and tennis player who "has taken her husband Art ( Mike FAIST) and transformed him into a great grand slam player."
She makes him play in a 'Challenger' tournament to get him out of his losing streak. This is close to the lowest level on the pro tour.
He finds himself across from Patrick, his ex-boyfriend and best friend ( Josh O'Connor).
