STANDING BY HER MAN.
This is an old article I found on the web from 2002 - after Pete won the US Open - by a UK newspaper.
STAND BY YOUR MAN: Pete Sampras sits there forlornly at the changeover, studying a torn note from the missus. "You truly are the greatest player to pick up a racket," she has written.
But on Wimbledon's graveyard Court Two, it can't resurrect him.
He's out, beaten by some obscure Swiss, and it's time for him to go, reads every obit notice.
Yet Bridgette Sampras knew better all along. In September, Sampras answered her love letter with his 14th Grand Slam at the US Open. Forget Ronaldo; this was the comeback of the year and the way he and Andre Agassi relived all their yesterdays in a magnificent final duel was 2002's sporting peak.
