Ha ha! I hate watching them. Both have sweet, sweet games but both are obnoxious ... the grunting kills me.

they messured some of those screams, Sharapova can reach 105 dbs (is that how you put it english?), that like a police car siren. Serena more than 90.

I don't know if anyone likes tennis, but Sampras vs Federer was on last night and even though it was just an exibition, the old man gave him a pretty good run for his money.

I read about it ACIE. Its like the third time they have played. I think Sampras won one. He is still one of the Top in history.

oete sampras married billy madison's grade four teacher..outside of that i always thought federer and sampras had similar games..both were pretty intense and could play pretty much anywhere on the court..agassi remains my favorite.

John McEnroe will forever be my favourite player, but Sampras is a close second.

Sampras game was a little boring. Much like Roddiks. They are only fun if they play against someone that can asnwer those Aces. Thank god he had Agassi to answer.
I have always like women tennis more, but currently theres nothing better than a Federer - Nadal game. "The Best" against "The Beast". Federers technique and intelligence against Nadals power and passion. Love em both.

Sampras' game was a thing of beauty. He executed the serve and volley like no other. Agassi was a goof. lol

Thats what I mean, his serve was to good. An unjustice for other players.

Argh! I did not just read that! Sampras' game was brilliant ... his serving, his volleying, his court coverage, his smashes ... his game was a thing of beauty.

lol, I agree, arguably the best ever, but still boring.....

I actually dont remember a lot of him, but I do remember I wasnt his biggest fan. Maybe If I saw him play now, I would love em.

Was Pete's ass sweating like the old days?

And btw, that video up there is kinda hot. I could totally see those two in a fight in the locker room.

I didn't look at his ass, but he looks like he's going to be battling Agassi soon for the title of who's suffering worse from male pattern baldness.

When Sampras was kicking ass, I'd sort of given up tennis after a few years of playing it. I was burned out and, to be honest, I found him kinda boring. I was an Edberg fan back in the day. I also liked Lendl (actually, more boring than Pete but I was young). I do love watching Federer today though. So dominant. It's interesting they played each other because if I recall correctly, Pete recently criticized Roger and questioned his legacy, basically saying he has no one but Nadal as competition. Sounds like someone pissed that his records are going to fall. I also think Roger will achieve the grand slam - something Assweat never did.

When they showed the aerial shots it's all scalp. He looked in better shape though than when he retired. He took Federer to a third set tie-break. He was up 5-4 and could've got it to match point, but he screwed up at the net and instead of puttting the volley away he hit it right at Federer who hit a nice passing shot up the line. Federer won the next two points and the match.
