TC, why are you in a rush to wave goodbye to Pete? There is no one out there to replace him! Let him leave by his own accord. Pete Sampras is afterall, the greatest player in the Open Era! So retiremant should be his call.
And TC, won't you be surprised if Pete makes another run at a grand slam title at the 2002 U.S. Open?
the point of the thread was to comment on the fact that Pete has changed coaches again, for the 3rd time in just a few months. if you read my intial post carefully you will see that i never raised anything about retirement
. that was not
the point of the thread but to talk about his constant coaching changes and whether that made any sense at this stage of his carrer.
when the poster ChristinaE once again seized the opportunity to attack me -- and that is mainly what she comes online to do -- i've never seen a single post by her about tennis; all she does is praise Sampras and attack those that she thinks are disrespecting him -- then i felt i had to respond to her. so in my last post i was actually responding to her latest dig at me. it's kinda pathetic that that is all she does -- kinda reminds me of Pete actually.
i know that you too are a Pete fan and i've always felt that you and i can disagree respectfully about Sampras. i have no problem with that. i've never felt that you attacked me personally for my dislike of Sampras. and that's exactly how it should be.
personally i don't want Pete to retire. i enjoy watching him being beaten and i wouldn't lose that pleasure for anything in the world. so, yes, go Pete!!!!! whether he has any tournies left in him, i really don't care to be absolutely honest.
