Re: San Jose exho: Tommy Haas def. Pete Sampras 7-6(4), 4-6, 12-10

That was a really fun exho!
Both guys were smiling and having fun while showing all the weapons in their arsenary, complete with Pete's jumping smash and Haas' BH dtl passing shot.
Pete can still serve constantly at over 120 mph, sometimes well over 130. His second service winner late in the second set was 123 mph!
In the match TB, Pete first led 5-2 but then threw two DF. Haas had his share of UE too. It was touch and go and at Pete's MP, 9-8* with Haas serving, Pete's Nike trainer came off while he was approaching to the net! So Nike owes him this match!! In the end, Haas won but that was a really enjoyable exho.
But Pete has changed. Who could imagine him even in an exho high fiving with the crowd after winning a spectacular point and going on to sit in the front row and eat popcorn?

Well, then I'll have to put it all on Monfils to beat some Swiss mug so I can reach my goal. Or I could do it by putting it all on Murray to beat Ljubo.

ok then... what if you lose?

the only time I ever bet on anything was when I put 50 credits on Hewitt and 50 credits on Australia to win its DC tie against Belgium. Needless to say I failed on both counts and have refrained largely from betting since

I would be very upset. That's why I haven't put any cash yet. I could have had 1M right now if Jonathan had got my order to put 100k on Nadull in the AO final. My fault for being an idiot and not sending him a PM.

Pete was obviously just dicking around here with Robredo. Strategic tank for Wimbledon.

12-10 in the final set? Come on, they could at least pretend to take it semi seriously, and not blatantly extend the match for as long as possible. It may only be an exho, but reducing it to the level of "pro" wrestling doesn't do tennis any favours.


Besides Haas knows his H2H versus Sampras holds up: 3-1 in competitive matches since he turned 20.
