Does Pete Sampras attend to tommorows final?

I did not find anything.

Either way do you think he should show up seeing that roger has a pretty good shot at his record?

It's more like a display of an awful match up, brainless tactics and chokefests.

I think he said he will attend the match when Roger will potentially break his record, so if he won this AO, it will be either in Wimbledon or USO, should he make the final in either.

I don't think Pete will bother going there.

Yeah, he was never at RG for very long each year, probably can't remember where it is after all those first round exits.

I'm sure a SFist remember pretty well where the tournament is.

MTFers have no perspective.

Sampras, in contrast, was willing to take up the topic.

He tabs four men as the greatest, in no particular order: Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, Federer and Sampras.

"Four guys that dominated their generations more than anyone else," said the 37-year-old Sampras, who will be playing senior tournaments in Boston next month and in Mexico in March.
A little funny to see Sampras proclaim himself as one of the 'greatest'. I mean has a point but it's may be wiser not to answer such questions directly.

Re: Does Pete Sampras attend to tommorows final?

Pete seems to be backing away from the "If he's going to break it, I'll go." thing now.

And not staying up to watch it? I guess I get it, but I daresay his wife might be understanding if he wants to see it if it happens.

Pete doesnt need to stay up to watch it, he can Tivo it and it will be live to him when he gets up.

Roy Emerson was not at Wimbledon when Pete broke his record (although he did do a GREAT commercial that was shown right after), Pete does not need to be there for Roger if he doesn't want to be.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
