Tennis, Pete Sampras

Pete Sampras Beats Roger Federer in Third Exhibition Match

At 36 and retired, Pete Sampras is still the best American tennis player today. Andy Roddick and James Blake would love to have done what Pete did today -- beat Roger Federer in straight sets.

Of course, it was just an exhibition and only the best of three sets but still you have to think Sampras could win a few tournaments if he gave it another shot.
"Let's not get carried away, I had my time in the 90s."
Come on, Pete. How about at least give Wimbledon a shot next year?

We knew that this was possible. Federer is a master base liner, with the technology of today, he improved on the greatest base liner of all Andra Agassi. But, Pete's variety all around the court and the mind of a Champion, as we stated before the beatings will just get worst!

Ya, that would be awesome.  I mean I'm going to get excited for Wimbledon anyway lol, but, Pete would make it better.
