Zendaya: A prophecy fulfilled

It's an ace of a coincidence that has everyone talking! Kirsten Dunst swung from "Mary Jane" in 'Spider-Man' (2002) to a tennis star in 'Wimbledon' (2004), and Emma Stone volleyed from "Gwen Stacy" in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' (2012) to 'Battle of the Sexes' (2017). Now, Zendaya steps onto the court, continuing this unexpected legacy. "Could you imagine? I'm like, 'You know what I have to do next? It's in the prophecy!'" she exclaimed with a smile.

For Zendaya, taking on the role in 'Challengers' wasn't just about following a trend. It was a journey of introspection and challenge, portraying a tennis star whose career takes a dramatic turn after a devastating injury. This role demanded more than just physical preparation; it required diving deep into the emotional turmoil and resilience of an athlete facing their toughest match yet.
