To all those who call Pete "one-dimensional"...

Hellow fellow Sampras fans

Here is a collection of points from various parts of Pete's career.

http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...egory=0&page=1

Special thanks goes to Mr. Q and his link in the Sampras/Agassi Wimbledon 1993 thread through which I found the link.

These clips really show the best of Pete- great all court display including movement and the ability to transform defense into attack and the raw power he possessed. It is amazing how he has been written off by so many people as boring and one dimensional. Just have a look at these clips and think again about how "one dimensional" he is.

Tennis Tool calling Sampras one dimensional We'll have to remember that one for next year's Arse Clown competition.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: To all those who call Pete "one-dimensional"...

thanks a lot RonE

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.
