Default The 2011 Champions Series: Sampras destroying all

Sampras spoils McEnroe's debut, wins in Seattle
TENNIS.com - Friday, October 14, 2011

SEATTLE, WA (Oct. 13, 2011)—Pete Sampras continued his winning ways in the 2011 Champions Series by defeating Michael Chang 8-4 to capture the Washington Trust Bank Champions Cup presented by Propel Insurance, at the Key Arena Thursday night in Seattle, Washington. It was his fourth victory in five appearances so far this season, as Sampras increased his lead in the Champions Series points standings. He now leads Chang by 600 points with seven of 12 events completed.

“I got it going tonight, and my game is really starting to feel good,” said the 14-time Grand Slam Champ. “These are all great matchups that we play here on this tour, and we’re all really excited that we can still sell out these arenas that we play in. But I’m here to win, and I like where I stand right now.”

Sampras advanced to the final with a 6-4 semifinal triumph over John McEnroe, who was making his first appearance of the 2011 Champions Series. “It was really nice coming back up here to Seattle tonight, and I loved getting back out there onto the court to compete,” said McEnroe.

Chang—who spent a number of years living in the Seattle area during his ATP Tour days—was playing in front of some of his old friends from the Pacific Northwest. He advanced with a 6-4 semifinal triumph over Jim Courier, who now sits in third place and holds just a 100-point margin over fourth place Andre Agassi. Only the top three finishers at the end of the 2011 Champions Series will share the one million dollar bonus pool.

The Champions Series moves to the Staples Center in Los Angeles Friday night for the HSBC Tennis Cup, followed by the CTCA Championships in Las Vegas Saturday night. Tickets and unique interactive VIP fan experiences for the 2011 Champions Series are on sale to the general public and start at $35. Tickets are available at venue box offices, all Ticketmaster locations, 202-397-SEAT or online at www.ticketmaster.com.

The 2011 Champions Series is a competitive tennis circuit featuring legendary tennis icons and world-renowned champions. The 12-city tour of one-night tournaments is being played in major U.S. arenas from September 22 – October 22.

Let's way until one of the New Balls joins this tour and Sampras will get trashed on every occasion.

Sampras is a bit of a young buck compared to most of the rest. But, competitive as always.

Who gives a fuck? He's a 40-year-old playing against players who are mostly close to or over 50.

I think it's time to move on from Sampras, don't you?

ROFL.. Like the Federphiles will be moving on from Federer when he retires in a year or two? All we will be hearing about for the next 10 years is how these guys couldn't beat Fed in his prime

Is this champions series some US invention where they let Sampras win so everyone is happy? Doesn't look anything like http://www.atpchampionstour.com/rankings.html

But yeah they are probably having a good time and that's what these events are about anyway

Nah, most of them along with most of the Rafaphiles will move onto the next best players, the future. That's generally the natural order of things. Though being stuck in a timewarp is respectable and all, at least it shows you aren't a glory hunter.

The guy is a both glory hunter (Sampras) and a glory denier (Federer).

Sampras, Agassi, Chang, Martin and Courier are about the same age. Even McEnroe, over 50, still plays great tennis.
