Default Sampras to play in Mexico

February 4, 2009 - Pete Sampras will join the six-player field at the Del Mar Development Champions Cup to be held March 18-22 at the Palmilla Tennis Club in Los Cabos, Mexico, InsideOut Sports & Entertainment announced. The Del Mar Development Champions Cup is a first-year event on the 2009 Outback Champions Series, the global tennis circuit for champion tennis players age 30 and over.

Sampras will be playing in Mexico for the first time in his professional career and will join two of his biggest rivals in Los Cabos � Jim Courier, whom he beat to win his first Wimbledon title in 1993 � and Patrick Rafter, whom he beat to win his seventh and final Wimbledon title in 2000. The final three competitors in the field will be announced at a later date. Sampras will open his 2009 Outback Champions Series season next week at the Champions Cup Boston Feb. 13-15 at the Agganis Arena on the campus of Boston University.

Sampras, 37, established himself as arguably the greatest tennis player of all time, winning a men�s record 14 major singles titles � seven Wimbledon titles (1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000), five US Open titles (1990, 1993, 1995, 1996, 2002) and two Australian Open titles (1994, 1999). He won 64 career ATP singles titles and was ranked No. 1 in the world for a record 286 weeks, including a record six-year stretch as year-end No. 1 from 1993 to 1998. In addition, Sampras helped the United States to Davis Cup titles in 1992 and in 1995. Since joining the Outback Champions Series in 2007, Sampras has won titles in Boston, Charlotte and Athens, Greece.

The Del Mar Development Champions Cup is the third of eight events on the 2009 Outback Champions Series and will be contested on an outdoor hard court. The tournament will feature a field of six champion players competing in a single knock-out format event, vying for $150,000 in prize money and ranking points that determine the year-end No. 1 ranked player in the Stanford Champions Rankings on the Outback Champions Series.

They are more likely to have a vacation in Los Cabos than playing tennis.
