Pete Sampras discusses Fatherhood and a Playdate with Andre Agassi.


By Joyce, CBB Correspondent

Tennis ace Pete Sampras, who will temporarily come out of retirement this spring to compete in an over-30 tour, recently did a Q&A with Sports Illustrated and talked about retired life as a father - to sons Christian Charles, 4, and Ryan Nikolaos, 18 months, with wife, actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras - and why he wants to meet up with Andre Agassi again.



A typical day for Pete, who retired from the ATP tour in 2003 after winning a record 14 grand slams, is still full of athletic activities, but revolves around his children as well. He wakes up at 7 or 8 and spends time with his sons before they go to pre-school. During the day, Pete, 35, plays golf, tennis three times a week, basketball twice a week, hits the gym and unwinds with a game of poker. When 5 o'clock rolls around though, he's back home.

I'll get back and spend a few hours with my kids before they go to bed...I spend a lot of time with my kids. I like taking my older son out to lunch. We go to Beverly Hills to have lunch and we have that time together.

The 7-time Wimbledon champ also hopes to make time for Andre, his former friendly archrival - not for a tennis match, but rather for their kids.

I would [describe us as friends today]. Not anything where we stay in touch week to week, but if he were ever in L.A. or I were in Las Vegas, I think we would reach out to one another just to get together or have our kids play. The great thing that happened with us is that everything we went through, completing for major titles, I think we came out better friends than when we went into it. It's a credit to who we are and what we represent.

Andre, who won eight majors, is married to another tennis great, 22-time grand slam champion Steffi Graf, and the couple has two children, son Jaden Gil, 5, and daughter, Jaz Elle, 3.

Pete will return to the court on May 2nd in the Outback Champions Series in Boston and will be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in July.
