Re: Pete and Bridgette 2006

thanks a lot binky, seems they still love each other deeply and bridgette is still as fit as ever

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: Pete and Bridgette 2006

Here is a little titbits from that function, about Pete & Bridgette.

RED CARPET HIGHLIGHTS

Fellow tennis champion Pete Sampras letting his beautiful actress wife and former Ms. Teen USA winner, Bridgette Wilson grab all the attention of flashbulb frenzy. She told us that she’s not at all anxious to return to a modeling or acting career much preferring playing mom and looking after their kids. "That’s takes preference," she laughed.

Re: Pete and Bridgette 2006

Tennis: New York triumph may be fitting end for Sampras


Independent, The (London), Sep 10, 2002 by John Roberts at Flushing Meadows



BRIDGETTE WILSON'S diary, if she keeps one, would be a good place to research the agony and the ecstasy of life with a struggling superstar. The actress married Pete Sampras on 30 September 2000, less than two months after he achieved a record 13th Grand Slam singles title by winning his seventh Wimbledon championship.

From that moment until the elation of his triumph against Andre Agassi, his career-long rival, at the United States Open here last Sunday night, Sampras had laboured through 33 tournaments without winning a title of any kind.

The 31-year-old multi-millionaire's professional pride was hurting, and those of us who are not fit to string his rackets were urging him to retire before the regular losses became an embarrassment on the scale of this summer's second-round defeat on Court Two at Wimbledon by George Bastl, a "lucky loser" from Switzerland.

Some wondered if marriage had made Sampras too comfortable to meet the demands of his status in the sport. "Bridgette's support is a big reason why I've been able to get through the adversity," he said, having made his way up the steps of Arthur Ashe Stadium to give her a hug. "She lives with me every day. Trust me, it's not easy. When you're struggling, you're not having fun, it's a burden. It just showed me that I met the right woman, and now we're going to have a child. That's what life's all about."

Sampras also embraced his older sister, Stella, and his coach, Paul Annacone, with whom he was reunited a few days after the low point of losing to Bastl at Wimbledon. "Whatever is next, it's Pete's choice," Annacone said. "He can continue on the path he started last month and get better, or he could walk off into the sunset."

It would be hard for Sampras to find a sunset as perfect as the one over Flushing Meadows on Sunday, where he defeated Agassi, 6-3, 6- 4, 5-7, 6- 4, hitting 33 aces - one, it seemed, for each of the tournaments that eluded him during his two years of anxiety. Even then, a case could be made for Sampras as the greatest player the men's game has seen, even allowing for the supreme serve-volleyer's inability to win on the slow red clay of the French Open. Securing a 14th Grand Slam at this point in his career, and in an era when the grind of travel and tournaments is more demanding than ever, strengthens the argument.

Wimbledon may prove to be too strong a magnet for Sampras to resist. "Hopefully, my last Wimbledon will be on Centre Court and not Court 13 or Court Two," he said, grinning.

So he is not ready to call it a day? "I'm going to have to weigh things up in the next couple of months to see where I'm at," Sampras said. "I still want to play. I love to play. But to beat a rival like Andre in a major tournament, at the US Open, a story-book ending, this might be a nice one to stop."

There was pause. "But", he continued, "I still want to compete. Right now my head's spinning. I'm sure in the next couple of weeks I'll reflect on it, see where my heart's at, and my mind, and decide what to do in a few months' time. I wanted to stop on my own terms. That was one thing I promised myself, even though I was struggling this year and hearing this and that. I deserved to stop on my own terms.

"And I've done too much in the game to hear the negative things. There was a point I was believing it, but having my family, my wife, and Paul, kept me positive. I could step away from the game and feel really good about what I'd done. But I still felt like I had one more moment, maybe a couple more moments. And it happened today.

"I never thought anything would surpass what happened at Wimbledon a couple of years ago, but this one might take the cake. This might be my biggest achievement so far. The way things clicked for me today, it was awesome. [Because of the rain delays] I had to play five matches in seven days. That was a lot of work. I peaked at the right time against Andre. I had to."

Sampras has won 20 of his 34 matches against Agassi, who was on the other side of the net when the Californian won his first Grand Slam title as a 19-year-old at the 1990 US Open. During the course of that tournament, Sampras hit 100 aces. On reflection, he says he "just had a hot two weeks" and that his game was not mature enough for such an early success. He hit 144 aces this time.

The 32-year-old Agassi's renowned return of serve did not threaten Sampras until midway through the third set, when the momentum of the match began to switch, leading to a dramatic fourth set in which Sampras hung on as weary legs took a toll on both players. Agassi would probably have been favoured in a fifth set, but he did not get that far.

"No disrespect to anyone I've played over the years," Sampras said, "but Andre's the best I've ever played. He has an extra gear. He brings out the best in me. He's made me a better player. He's forced me to add things to my game. He's brought moments to my career that are like Borg and McEnroe."

Greg Rusedski, who, after losing to Sampras in five sets in the third round, said the American was a step and a half slower than he used to be, barely rated a mention at the end of the day. "Greg's got his own issues," Sampras said. "His issues have issues. We're talking too much about the wrong guy."


SAMPRAS THE GOLDEN OLDIE

The US Open men's final between Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi was the first between two players over 30 in the Open era. Agassi is 32, Sampras 31. The final was also the first between over-30 players in Grand Slam competition since the 37-year-old Ken Rosewall defeated the 36-year-old Mal Anderson to win the 1972 Australian Open. Sampras is now the oldest Grand Slam champion since Arthur Ashe won Wimbledon in 1975 at 31 years, 11 months, and the oldest US Open champion since Rosewall won in 1970 at the age of 35. Sampras was 31 on 12 August 2002.
