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.

Re: All Pete Sampras matches (ATP Tour)

There was an exhibition tournament in China that featured Sampras, alongside Li Na, Carlos Moya and Sabine Lisicki! Here's a write-up and some great quotes from the players (with photos from the matches and press conference!)

P.Sampras - J.Hlasek 6-3 6-4 6-1
- Hlasek said after that match: "He has the game to win it, win it all. It is tough to play him because you don’t know what is coming. It is very hard to see what he is doing, I had no clue what to do. I had no timing at all".
- Sampras said: "Maybe in a couple of years but I don’t think that it’s realistic right now. I think I have the game, it’s just a matter of putting it all together at one time and keeping my concentration at a high level. I can do it in a couple of years but it’s tough, for the way that I play, to win a Grand Slam at age 19".
