Synopsis

Sharon is engaged to Johnny but he leaves on a business trip and sends a telegram breaking up with her. Sharon is humiliated and refuses to date anyone else, until tennis player Rudy comes along and they fall in love. Sharon is afraid he’ll ditch her as well, so she demands that he marry her at once. This would require giving up his amateur status and turning pro: Rudy asks Sharon to wait until after the championship match, but she refuses. They break up. Rudy is losing the big match until Sharon shows up and shouts that she loves him. Rudy wins and he and Sharon will wed.
