Great clip of Pete sampras "What are you smoking?"

Check out this old clip of Pete. It isn't very often you see him arguing with an umpire.

Anyone have any other behind the scence clips of Pete?

The commentator: "Pete having to work hard, but he holds."

Yes, those long rallies he had to play to save that game were really exhausting.

Hey, I like Petes shirt.

That camera view is horrible (too low). I hope that they didn't have that one for the whole match.

They did for large portions of that match

Actually this match has grown so much in legend and reputation because of the drama but personally I think you can scrape the first four sets and 12 games of the fifth set and just watch the final set tiebreak. Apart from the drama with Pete barely walking, throwing up and saving MP the rest of the match was really nothing to write home about in terms of quality.

Oh, I looked for the clip of that tie breaker, but I couldn't find it on youtube.

I love Pete's delivery of that line. It could have been straight out of The Sopranos.
