Pete Sampras autobiography

TennisX

April 14th, 2007



by Richard Vach

From blogger Peter Bodo: “Pete Sampras and I recently agreed to write a book together; it will be the official Pete Sampras autobiography, in which he’ll tell the story of his life and times, in the first person. One of the things that made this project attractive to me is that I always admired Pete’s purity of purpose.”

Re: Pete Sampras autobiography

"First, I want y'all to be the first to know that Pete Sampras and I
recently agreed to write a book together; it will be the official Pete
Sampras autobiography, in which he'll tell the story of his life and
times, in the first person. One of the things that made this project
attractive to me is that I always admired Pete's purity of purpose. On
this subject, I always like to relate an anecdote about the late
Boston Red Sox slugger (and Hall-of-Famer) Ted Williams, who said all
he wanted out of life was that, when he walked down the street, people
would say: There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever
lived.

That, I think, is very close to how Pete Sampras felt, and this book
will explore what that means and how it directed Pete's life and
career. I'm glad to say this will be no kiss-and-tell bio, or
explosive Jose Canseco-grade confessional. There will be no Pete
Sampras celebrity champion as philosopher king or planet saver. Pete
is like the Joe DiMaggio of tennis; dignified, private, above-the-
fray, beyond gossip, reticent. This will be a hardcore tennis book,
and to hail with the dirty laundry. It will treat the nature and
substance of Greatness in athletics and the components of success,
some of which will undoubtedly resonate beyond the confines of the
tennis court."
