Default Federer and Sampras to play exho at Madsion Square Garden

http://www.usopen.org/en_US/news/int...387326218.html
Q. This morning I heard a suggestion that you could be playing an exhibition early next year against Pete Sampras in the U.S. What's the story on that?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, well, we gonna play XOs obviously in Seoul, Korea, Kuala Lumpur, and also Macau at the end of the year after Shanghai, three of them in a row.

The idea came along obviously to do it in the States as well. We're going to play March 10 at Madison Square Garden here. I'm really looking forward to that. We'll first see how the first three matches go. Hopefully I don't have to come from behind, huh (smiling)?

It will be nice to see and record that match! I am starting to get tired of watching that 2001 match over and over again.

The funny thing is: when Roger faced Sampras back then, Federer played with the same racket Pete used to play. Now, Sampras play with the same racket Roger plays with!

I would say that on the tennis zoo, there is plenty of space for more than one GOAT!

Well, too bad we'll see even less S&Ving than that time.

You mean he's playing Dubai and the other 4 slams?
