Pete Sampras continued his return to competitive tennis in style after a 6-2 6-1 defeat of Tim Mayotte during the second night of action in the Champions Cup Boston at Agganis Arena.

The game was equal parts tennis and entertainment as the two competitors played to the crowd and chatted back and forth with each other and the line judges. The duo even allowed a ball boy and ball girl to play a point during the match.

Sampras dominated the Massachusetts native with a powerful serve and didn't drop a service game during the match.

The 35-year-old took the first set with relative ease, breaking Mayotte in the third game and carrying that momentum to a 6-2 victory.

Mayotte, a last minute replacement for Mats Wilander, struggled to get his own serve going and allowed Sampras to break again on a double fault at 4-2.

The second set was more of the same as Sampras broke Mayotte again in the third game on another double fault before closing out the match with a fifth break.

The win improved Sampras to 2-0 while Mayotte fell to 0-2.

Earlier, Todd Martin defeated Wayne Ferreira in straight sets 6-3 6-2.

Martin now stands at 2-0 while Ferreira is yet to win a match. Jim Courier beat Pat Cash 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 to improve his record to 2-0, while the Australian dropped to 0-2.

Pete beat Mayotte 6-3 6-4 during Detroit tournament in 1988. It was his first victory over one of the "top 10" players in the world at that time:)
