HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel returns tomorrow, Tuesday, May 23rd, at 10 p.m. Eastern time putting the spotlight on Bahrami's fascinating story, which began with his escape from Iran and where he learned to play tennis fashioning a dust pan as a raquet, to his rise as an international tennis star.
