Yes, congratulations to Pete! Even if you're not his biggest fan this is a great piece of history!

This must be one of the biggest Grand-Slam-surprise-wins ever.

Even Goran's chances going into Wimbledon 2001 weren't much lower than Pete's here.

Congrtas to Pet Sampras! I certainly never thought he would win another grand slam title!

And remember, Pete lost in the first round in the U.S. Open warmup tournament on long Island. So this grand slam title came out of nowhere in my opinion.

Sampras now has 14 grand slam singles titles. And no men's tennis player will ever surpass that!

Egalite!

Congrats to Pete! I didn't think he had it in him.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

I think Lleyton tired Andre yesterday. It tool a lot out of andre both mentally and physically to overcome LLeyton he could not keep that up against Sampras.

Arwen and Aragorn
Eowyn and Faramir
Eomer

Marat, Lleyton, Marcelo, Yevgeni, Serena, Anna k., Venus, Martina H. So they say you're arrogant, tell em to kiss your ***.

So they say you can't control your temper, so what?

So they say you're rude, keep laughing as you win titles

To all the bad boys and bad girls keep on keeping on and screw everyone else.

thank you tennis fool for creating this thread

irma: andre paid millions to lose, what a joke, a win is a win, your idol is generous enough to praise pete why you as a fan be such a sour grape

pete leads andre 20:14, do remember this

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.

I think Pete is lucky to have an easier time in the Semi, knowing that he has an edge over Sjeng. They say you have to be lucky to be good. But you also have to be good to be lucky.

So Congrats to Pete for winning the title, and Andre for putting up a good fight.
