What I Think of Sampras
Pete Sampras, the greatest there ever Was, Is and FOREVER WILL BE!!!!!!!!
As my nickname suggests, he was originally called THE NATURAL because he was born a NATURAL, THE MAN WAS BROUGHT UP USING A WOODEN RACQUET.
Laver even said that if Sampras played in their time he would have destroyed all of them even with their equipment.
I believe that after Tim died and Pete played the French Open in dedication to Tim, and he actually made the Semis. He never wanted to top that achievement at the French, because he was so emotionally attached to Tim that he wanted to believe that only with Tim's help could he ever get that far at Rolland Garros.
He is the most under-rated champion in history.
If he had won the French Open there would still be those HATERS and OLD CONSERVATIVE FOOLS who would say that he isnt the greatest, people would still find a way to be little him and belittle his achievements.
If he were still playing today, he would still be in the top 10.
If he really had the heart to do it, he could make a comeback and win the French or win another Grandslam. If he used the same racket technology as those playing today, he would be serving well above the 130s and touch the 140s on a regular occassion.
If he didnt have thalessemia, he would have won Rolland Garros (because that condition results in the person being fatigued and losing energy quickly, low stamina) and would have won many more Grandslam Titles and Singles titles. He would have also have created a wall of dominance greater than the world of tennis had ever seen before, and would have been "invincible" for many more years.
