NIXED DOUBLES - Marriage Ended Sampras' Career

NIXED DOUBLES






September 2, 2006 -- JUST in time for the U.S. Open comes word that the key to a long tennis career is to stay single. Andrew Corsello, writing in GQ, blames the demise of Pete Sampras' game on his marriage to actress Bridgette Wilson, calling it "the curse of the succubus." Sampras' stellar six-year career flew out the window faster than a broken serve right after he said, "I do." Corsello also noted Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe have all fallen prey to the fabled "curse."

Re: NIXED DOUBLES - Marriage Ended Sampras' Career

Is it possible to quit cluttering up GM with Sampras posts? Or at least post all the articles in one thread? Why do we need a separate thread for every news bit about Sampras?

Because the others are still active players and as someone else pointed out Sampras has his own forum for these things to be posted in. At least keep it to one thread as suggested above. Also stop bumping your own threads its a bit weird

LOL!! I can't believe mirkaland the biggest poster of useless Roger Ferderer thrash just said the above with a straight face.

Maybe my memory is shady but wasn't she who made a whole thread about Roger going to Elton John's wacky tiara and crystal meth party.

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.

If youre happily married and raising a family, tennis SHOULD be second in priority. Otherwise you've got some pretty wacked mindset

Tommy Robredo is married and has kids and NOW is when he is doing his best. I think that players go down the drain when they have to.
