Who met him ???

I'm just curious, I'd like to know if someone of this forum had the great opportunity to meet Pete ? To talk him ???
Personly...never. I just saw him in real 4 times (Bercy 3, RG 1) and I was very happy, so I can imagine that meeting him is still more fantastic !!!

Re: Who met him ???

Hello Marine, join the fourm recently and i love all these great stuff about Pete, I think I am his biggest fan in the world, I try to collect everything I can put my hands on about him, my heart is still broken since he retires from tennis. I think he would be a super golfer, what do you guys think? I would to hear about anyone meeting him too.

never saw, never met
one of my biggest regrets.... had one opportunity (the year hewitt beat him in the open finals) but could not offered those tickets!! probably just as well --- I would have hated for that one chance to see him to be in that situation where he was losing so badly

Re: Who met him ???

i have met him in person once, its 1996, the Marboro Open (exhibition), he was the no.1 by that time, no.2 was Michael Chang

he was a little bit cold to his fans and he only signed 2 autographs, but i don't blame him, he is also human beings, he has good and bad days

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.

Re: Who met him ???

he was the superstar by then, all other players seat together in one car, while he seats in one car alone , but may be its exhibition, the great sampras won the first round, but lost in the second round

i have also seen Thomas Muster and got his autograph, he is very nice and signed more than 50 autographs

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Re: Who met him ???

Hey, Mimi, Totally agree with you...I hate it when Roger broke Pete's record on grass I hope he wont break Pete's grand slam records.. only 11 grand slams to go...No...I hate it when people say Roger is more complete than Pete

Re: Who met him ???

Roger will not break Pete records, none of them anytime soon, so dont worry yourself blueriver, and as for him been more complete than Pete, it is just nonsense, this is just John McEnroe running his mouth off as asusal, John never have anything good to say about Pete, if somebody else comes along tomorrow and start winning grand slams they will say the same about him been better than Roger Federer, give the guy a couple more years and then we will see if he can better Pete records, it is not always the current star that shines the brightest, somebody might come along next year and then we will be singing a different tune.

Re: Who met him ???

yes blueriver, hehe, I am not alone, yes only 9 slams is already enough for Roger, don't give him 11, the selfish mimi

he may be more complete than pete but pete's mental toughness is the greatest , always winning, thats why i admire him, always calm, no bad words, just let his racket does the talking

Re: Who met him ???

thanks for your stats angiel

what i meant was that Roger seems to have a more complete game than Pete coz Pete's backhand sometimes is not very good

but still seems no one at the moment can really challenge Roger, unlike Pete, who has Agassi/Chang/Boris to challenge him, so thats why I start to worry about Pete's records

but thanks a lot, Pete is still better than Roger at the moment
