I meant if Sampras is your typical white american like roddick, isner, etc you know what I mean, Or some guy born from recent immigrants. It seems most sucessful tennis players in the US were neither from your typical old stock american roots. Agassi is half Iranian, Sampras both parents were born in greece ,etc.
The same happens in canada where most succesful players such as raonic, nestor, etc are all sons of first generation immigrants.
