Feb. 18, 2006, 11:55PM
All-time Grand Slam champion Pete Sampras will play his first competitive tennis match in 3 1/2 years in Houston during the River Oaks International the first week of April.
Van Barry, director of tennis at River Oaks Country Club, said the contract hasn't yet been signed "but all parties are on board. We very excited to be bringing Pete back to Houston."
In his last match before a paying crowd, Sampras defeated longtime rival Andre Agassi to win the 2002 U.S. Open. It gave him a record 14 major titles.
Sampras will be at River Oaks the night of April 5, facing an opponent to be selected from the exhibition tournament's field.
