Sure, Pete.

And we will have to read this nonsense for at least another year.

it's good to see the entire quote. the article i quoted before ("Now Matthieu spanks Sampras") deleted the more arrogant sounding statements. i don't know if this is confidence or just delusional thinking on his part

Quote:
Despite the setback, Sampras thinks he can win the U.S. Open.

"You have to remember who I am and where I'm playing next week. The U.S. Open is where you shine, and that is where I hope to shine," said Sampras, who was seeded third here. "I'm not the man to beat like I once was - Lleyton Hewitt has taken that role. But I'm still one of the favorites.

"The days of me dominating and being No. 1 are probably over. My goal is to win another major and, hopefully, destiny will be on my side at the Open. It just takes one close win and things can turn around quickly."

Last year's runner-up here, Sampras has not reached the quarterfinals of any event since appearing in the final of the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships in May. He has not won a title since Wimbledon 2000.

true dat!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

If Pete can't believe in himself he might as well just go home. I think it is good to hear Pete say that. He has confidence. I have heard players say worse!

He is just trying to pump himself up. I hope he can do well, but I will be suprised to see him get to week 2.

I feel a bit guilty right now.

Last year I did the same to Lleyton, saying that he has no chance to win, and we all know what happened.

And now I have done it again.

pete has just beaten Greg the dirty mouth, Haas and Roddick who is 11 years younger than him, please wait longer before he is finsihed, people are just jealouf of his unreachable, unbreakable achievements, sour grapes

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

OMG.

I did it once again. Last year I posted the thread 'At least Lleyton won't win a slam anytime soon' and now this one.

Next year, just tell me the player you want to win and I will write him off.
