Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pete Sampras added an important new fact to his impressive resume this week when he became a father for the first time. A valued tennisreporters.net source confirmed that Sampras and his wife, actress Bridgette Wilson, welcomed a son to their family. Mom and baby are reported to be doing fine and there is no word yet on what the couple have named their new arrival.

Sampras, who holds a record 14 Grand Slam titles, won his last major at the US Open in September. Since that time, he's been contemplating whether to retire or return to the tour for the 2003 season. Sampras has admitted he is torn between seeking an eighth career Wimbledon title and ending his career with his recent success at Flushing Meadows.

Re: Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

Do you guys think Christian will play tennis like his dad or become an actor like his mom? they ask Pete that question in the interview, I will post his answer in my next post.

Re: Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

I just hope he won't be an actor like his mum..I saw her in 2/3 movies and she was pathetic! The movies weres pathetic, her role (superficial blonde) and his game. It's not jealousy which makes me saying that, I'd prefer having to say Pete's wife is a good actress. But it's not possible. Sorry.

If Christian becomes a honest, serious, good man, like his father, it will be much enough for me. Talent or not for tennis is not important.

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Re: Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

i think may be pete will not allow his son to play tennis? just my thought coz he will be under extreme pressure if he has to play under the name "the great Pete's son"

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: Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

Pete response about Christian playing tennis - would it make you proud if Christian took to tennis? If he's into it, I'm all for it, but if he's not, I am all for that too. It would be difficult for him to play tennis, not be as good, have the comparisons. People always reminding him who I was. But if he's into it, I'm more than willing to help him. He does walk around a lot with a golf club in his hand. Maybe that will be his sport. But it'll be up to him. What I would like is for him to have focus. He goes on to say sports was a main way for him (Pete) when he was growing up to stay out of trouble, drugs, parties and the wrong crowd. So if it's sports or acting or whatever it is he wants to do, he dont want him to lose track and be in the wrong crowd. They lives in Beverly Hills you know and that can be a big distraction.

Re: Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

Marine I think Christian will be an actor, and why do you seems to dislike Bridgette so much, in fact i like her a lot and so i think a lot of people, she is a good actress just need to get better roles and i think she will in the future,anyway she has a new film coming out in the fall (Nov 2204), it is call shopgirl and she might just win an oscar to spite you, Christian is the spitting image of her Beautiful, Gorgeous and Adorable, give her a break will you.

Marine, Bridgette is more than just an actor, she is also an accomplished songwriter and singer, she has two CD's star in several TV roles, was Miss teen USA 1990 and she taught herself to play the piano when she was a child.

Re: Call Pete Sampras 'daddy'

That movie was'nt Screams 2 the name was I Know What You Did Last Summer and yes she is still acting, she just put her career on hold while pete was still playing, that is why I like her even more, how many people would do that for somebody else. She has been in 26 films so she must have done something right to get those parts, she is a talented young woman.
