Re: Pete's Rivals: Those that kept it close

Fabrice def Pete one and one in '98??? Even on clay, it was the prime of Sampras's career, what a fab result!

Go Nole, Almagro, Rafa & Qureshi/Bopanna!

That IS pethetic. Before Pete hit his stride ofcourse. He would blast Gilbert in 94-95 form.

Re: Pete's Rivals: Those that kept it close

Larsson should have won that match in the Australian Open in 1995. He didn't care that he was playing Sampras and Pete definitely respected him as a player.
