Federer vs. Sampras
When Roger Federer came into Southern California, he was thinking who would be a good hitting partner. The answer was easy: Pete Sampras. Federer said he got a chance to hit against the man he's chasing. Federer woudln't give a score, but made it clear he beat Sampras. They could have sold tickets for that. Lets hope Federer did a good enough job of preparing Sampras for the senior tour.

Federer Tunes Up With Sampras
Roger Federer revealed in his pre-tournament press conference Friday that he had practiced with Pete Sampras in Los Angeles in the lead-up to the Pacific Life Open.

Federer and Sampras met just once on the ATP circuit - in the fourth round of Wimbledon in 2001 when Federer won 7-5 in the fifth set.

Here is what Federer had to say about their practice sessions this week:

Q. I'm not sure I heard you correctly. You say you practiced with Pete?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, we hit together for two days.

Q. How did he play?
ROGER FEDERER: Very good, surprisingly. Very good, you know. Not good enough to beat me (laughing).


Q. If you could describe a little bit about playing with Pete. I mean, you get some flashes of his great shots, the winning forehand. What was it like?
ROGER FEDERER: That was great. Well, I knew I was coming to L.A., so I'm kind of thinking, who's around in L.A.? So, I rang up Pete and said, "Any chance?"
He was like, "Yeah, sure."
I'm totally excited. So right away I had the idea, anyway seeing how good he plays because he was one of my favorite players, when I was growing up and beating him in his backyard in Wimbledon was so special to me. I wanted to try to -- I wanted to beat him in his house. So it was very enjoyable to actually hit with him. It would be kind of cool to maybe play an exhibition against him. We'll see. But he was playing very well.

Q. Did you play some sets or?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, we did play some games and sets and tiebreaks and --

Q. What was the score?
ROGER FEDERER: Can't tell you. But it was good fun.

Really sneaky, Roger! Its funny how he nonchalantly slips it into the interview like it wasn't that big a deal. Fans would have paid an arm and a leg to be courtside, and the tennis journalists around the world must have let out a collective sigh that they couldn't get a scoop on that one.

I'd like to hear Pete's take on it. Did he try to serve and volley at every point? And did his heart race playing with the greatest tennis talent of all time?

i hated readnig people saying was boring, he had sucha wit, u can never anticipate what he would say

wow
can u believe it
if fans knew they would have been stalking sampras home for a sneak peak
I can see an exhibition organized someday soon
it would draw more crowds than a grand slam final,

well sampras is only praticing 3 times a week for a couple of hours
he needs some time to cleear his rustiness

but good to know he gave Federer a good workout
most off the current players arent able to

I wonder what they did & talked about when they were practicing????

03-10-2007, 07:04 AM
Now that Roger had revealed he beat Pete, I wonder if that's the end of the practice sessions. :devil: :D

He sounded like he truly enjoyed that hitting session.

I also think, given the fact Roger think there's a shot to do an exibition match with Pete, that Pete didn't do too badly. Pete isn't going to do something that would humiliate him, especially facing Roger. If Pete managed to give Roger a good work out, he may be convinced to do the exhibition.

Perhaps they taped the session, and will show it later? Pete wouldn^t want it shown if he looked bad. However, if he lost but played well Pete would not be ashamed to have the session shown. Whatever, I think it is great that both men admire and appreciate each other^s accomplishments, unlike some fans here.

The comments from Federer read a bit ... I dunno ... over the top? I mean what is with the bit about wanting to beat Sampras in his house? I'm hoping this was said in a very joking manner (impossible to tell with written text) because if not it really makes Federer sound kind of disrespectful. I mean, invite yourself over to practice and then tell the press it was because you wanted to beat him at his house? Is there audio of these comments anywhere so I can get the tone?

I would have given up my savings to see that! My ultimate favorite player of all time against the ultimate best of all time (and yes, I mean Roger), it doesn't get much better then that. Good for Pete for actually keeping up with him. I also like that Roger showed Pete enough respect to not tell about the scores. I think both men enjoyed the experience very much, good for them. Now what about an exhibition guys?

Because tennis doesn't have that kind of interest. Andre Agassi and John McEnroe are not as recognisable as the likes of Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan or David Beckham either and they are the bearers of tennis folklore.


And David Beckham isn't popular because he's dominant. He's popular because he's a pretty boy who's married to Posh Spice and spends more time on his hair than on his fitness. He's a pop icon...not a sports star.

I think if some people expect Pete, at 35, after not playing any competitive tennis for God knows how many years, beating players at height of their power, should check into rehab.:wavey:

On the other hand, Fed at 35 may receive the same treatment from world No.1 then, so, hey keep it perspective. Beating Sampras at 35 is not the same as beating Sampras v.1996.

Anyway, I still think that both of them have more in common than some people think. Didnt like Sampras that much when he was around but I appreciate how great player he was.

Asia for instance. There is no doubt that Tiger is known worldwide, and well in the US, as he is American it is certainly the case.

I guess it's one way to try and put Federer down, if you can't do it on his tennis or winningness, make up something about his lack of visibility.

Tennis players tend not to be as visible as athletes from other sports, even athletes whose accomplishment don't even come close to Woods', Jordan's or Beckham's. I dont' necessarily know why that is, but it's just a fact. On ESPN, tennis takes a backseat..a far one at that...to the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NCAA football and basketball. On Eurosport, soccer dominates their coverage (from my recollection of the coverage when I lived in Spain). Part of the proof of how tennis players are shortchanged is the fact that Woods was award the Sportman of the Year from SI last year, despite Roger's accomplishments. Even Woods acknowledged that Federer's accomplishments were greater (implying that Fed should have won).

Plus, you have to remember, Fed is really only 3 years into his illustrious career, this being the 4th (I'm gauging this from when he started winning GS tournaments). Tiger has been winning majors for almost 10 years now (his first Masters was in 1997) and Jordan took about 10 years to rise to the proper prominance he deserved. In alot of ways, I think people are taking Roger's accomplishments for granted because they are happening so fast, so easy, and without controversy or drama.

Clifford warns Beckham over US move

PR guru Max Clifford has warned David Beckham he is not yet a star in the United States.

Talking to BBC Breakfast News he compared the former England captain's transfer from Real Madrid to LA Galaxy to the attempts to raise the game's profile in the US by legends Pele and George Best. Both ended their playing careers in the States during a push to make the game more popular in the 1970s.

Clifford said: "Football is not big in America, David Beckham is not big in America - football does not mean much."

Rogi next time please practice with your peers. Obviously they're far ahead of Pete @ the moment. Pete must be laughing his ass off. Mission accomplished as far as he is concerned.
