SAMPRAS DEFEATS RODDICK TO LEAD TEAM BILLIE JEAN KING TO VICTORY AT ADVANTA WTT SMASH HITS


$350,000 Raised to Fight HIV and AIDS in Orange County and Around the World

Irvine, Calif. (September 14, 2006) --- Andy Roddick had a great run at the US Open last week but the stage belonged to Pete Sampras on Thursday night as Sampras defeated Roddick to lead Team Billie Jean King to a 15-10 win over Team Elton John in the 14th annual Advanta World TeamTennis Smash Hits at the Bren Center in Irvine, Calif.

More than $350,000 was raised from the annual event which is co-hosted by longtime friends Billie Jean King and Elton John. At a reception held earlier in the evening, more than $184,000 of that total was raised as King, John and the players participated in a live auction, with proceeds from the event benefiting the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the AIDS Services Foundation Orange County.

In two sets of men’s singles, Roddick’s powerful serve was not enough to overcome the impressive play of Sampras. After winning the first set of men’s singles 5-3, Sampras never looked back as he posted another 5-3 win in the second set to close out the evening.

Sampras also teamed with WTA Tour double standout Rennae Stubbs in mixed doubles for a 5-4 win over Roddick and Anna Kournikova. The early highlight of the evening was the energetic play of Elton John who teamed with Andy Roddick for a battle of the sexes win over Rennae Stubbs and Anna Kournikova. John ripped a forehand winner on set point to win the celebrity doubles match in overtime, 5-4.

Final results (celebrity set does not count towards total match score)

Celebrity doubles: Elton John / Andy Roddick def. Anna Kournikova / Rennae Stubbs, 5-4 (4)

Mixed Doubles: Pete Sampras / Rennae Stubbs (Team Billie Jean) def. Andy Roddick / Anna Kournikova (Team Elton), 5-4

Men’s Singles: Pete Sampras (Team Billie Jean King) def. Andy Roddick (Team Elton John) 5-3, 5-3

Auction Highlights:
Wimbledon travel and tickets package: Total of $40,000 – two winning bidders at $20,000 each

Hit with Andy Roddick on event court: $10,000

Piano bench signed by Elton John: $10,000

Super Bowl ticket package: Total of $30,000 – 2 winning bidders at $16,000 and $14,000

U.S. Open ticket package: Total of $22,000 – two winning bidders at $11,000 each

Bon Jovi autographed guitar: $9,000

Yamaha baby grand piano autographed by Elton John: $25,000

Total raised from the pre-event auction (live and silent): $184,500

Advanta is the sponsor of the 14th annual Advanta WTT Smash Hits. Advanta is also the presenting sponsor of the WTT Pro League and the official business credit card of World TeamTennis.

Re: Sampras defeats Roddick in WTT

thank you wimbledonfan

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 don't think Roddick was serious about the match.

Re: Sampras defeats Roddick in WTT

Roddick had been scratching his balls and banging bitches for the last 2 weeks. He obviously tanked this match to give Pete an ego boost.

Re: Sampras defeats Roddick in WTT

Pete sure upped his game since he lost to Sam Warburg in July.

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.

Re: Sampras defeats Roddick in WTT

Retire, Andy.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Sampras defeats Roddick in WTT

I was there at this match, and at the sampras match against courier in august...pete looks damn good, and honestly, i know it was a charity event, and it was WTT rules...but still, i am pretty sure the competitive spirt in andy wanted to win those two sets. It was an entertaining match, and pete showed that he still has what it takes.
