Hewitt df Sampras 7-5 6-4 in Memphis exhibition

http://livenews.com.au/Articles/2009...ras_in_Memphis

Lleyton Hewitt had a straight sets victory over tennis legend Pete Sampras in an exhibition match at the ATP tournament in Memphis, Tennessee on Monday.

Hewitt, who will take on James Blake in the tournament proper in the first round on Wednesday, overcame the 14-time grand slam winner 7-5 6-4.

It was the first time the two former world No.1s had met since the Australian triumphed in straight sets in Indian Wells in 2002, Sampras' last full season on tour.

"It's always fun to play a great champion like Pete," Hewitt said.

"I thoroughly enjoyed competing against him once again tonight".

Sampras has recently played exhibition matches against James Blake and Roger Federer and showed against Hewitt he still possesses a strong serve, broken just twice by the Australian.

Hewitt, who defeated Sampras in straight sets to win his first grand slam title at the US Open in 2001, is trying to work his way back after hip surgery last year.

Re: Hewitt df Sampras 7-5 6-4 in Memphis exhibition

thanks lee, seems pete always have problem with Hewitt

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.
