Ignorance deserves a BIG serve!

Blonde actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras has plans to join her husband, "Pistol Pete" Sampras, next week after his Australian Open Tennis duties. It will be a getting-to- know-you rendervous, as they're always at opposite ends of the globe. Several weeks ago, she was in San Francisco finishing filming on The Wedding Planner, with Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez, and she was talking by mobile phone to Pete, who was across the Atlantic in Portugal (for the Masters Cup). Wilson-Sampras, questioned about her role in the romantic comedy, couldn't believe some of the dumb questions from international journalists.

"So, the Sampras part of your name...is that Greek? Oh, so you got married recently? And is your husband in the film industry? He plays sport? What sport does he play? Oh...that Pete Sampras!"

Unbelievable!

No wonder some members of the Hollywood foreign press corps have a reputation as know-nothings.

Wilson-Sampras found it all rather amusing trying to explain that her husband had won 13 Grand Slam tournaments and dozens of other tournaments around the world.

The excuse from one journalist was that she didn't read the gossip pages.

Wilson-Sampras didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Pete and Bridgette got married on Sep 30, 2000



Tennis great Pete Sampras sealed his love match to TV actress Bridgette Wilson last night (September 30). The pair played doubles in a romantic Los Angeles wedding ceremony attended by six other couples. After the service, the bridal couple hosted a dinner for 60 guests right on the tennis court in the backyard of Sampras' home in Beverly Hills. Wilson, the stunning star of the new Fox-TV series "The Street," has been jetting back and forth between L.A. and New York, where the show is being filmed at Chelsea Piers. Her curly-headed hubby has been taking it easy since getting bounced in the finals of the U.S. Open last month. The couple has been an item for only about a year. The former Miss Teen USA started seeing Sampras in 1999, when he was on the rebound following a two-year romance with "Father of the Bride" co-star Kimberly Williams. The 13-time Grand Slam champion's only other love sets over the years were a brief flirtation with actress Lauren Holly and a six-year relationship with Delaina Mulcahy, a South African-born law student who he met when she was seeing his then-agent, Gavin Forbes, Wilson plays a devious money manager on the new Fox show about Wall Street brokers, which debuts Nov. 1.

Pete hired Elton John to entertain them. He told the 85 astonished guests: "Here's Elton John. He doesn't normally do weddings, but he's making an exception for us." The superstar sat down at the piano and serenaded the couple with a 45-minute set packed with some of his biggest hits. Sports-mad Elton is a big tennis fan and has been a close friend of 29-year-old Sampras for years. Friends said last night that the idea that he should perform at the wedding was initially put to Elton as a joke. But he immediately replied: "I'll do it." Sampras, the most successful player in history, and his 26-year-old bride tied the knot on Saturday in an open-air ceremony in the grounds of his pounds 4million Beverly Hills home. After they were pronounced man and wife, the couple led the guests, who included former U.S. champ Jim Courier, to a marquee on Sampras's tennis court. Pete's big rival Andre Agassi and former Centre Court bad boy John McEnroe were also invited - but both sent their apologies. After Elton's spot Sampras, whose family has Greek roots, followed tradition by joining his bride to smash a huge plate on the floor. Sampras first asked Bridgette for a date over a year ago after seeing her half naked in a film called Love Stinks. He said later: "Not only is Bridgette beautiful but she is also so sweet, nice and smart. "And she's funny and fun to be with." Bridgette, a former Miss Teen USA, once said: "I know I want to have a family and be a housewife. "That's really the most important thing with me."

Courtship of Bridgette Wilson was like Hollywood film
Boston Herald (Publication date: 2001-01-31)

When tennis superstar Pete Sampras proposed marriage to Bridgette Wilson last June, the actress had just finished working on the film "The Wedding Planner." Given that film's story line - the fiance (Matthew McConaughey) falling in love with the wedding planner (Jennifer Lopez) - it would have been understandable if the actress had balked at bringing in professional help for her own nuptials on Sept. 30.

But she didn't. Then again, neither did she hire Lopez.

"It's funny," Wilson-Sampras said, "because, going back to `The Wedding Planner,' I never thought about having it done that way myself. Doing this movie made me realize how much planning there is for a wedding. Whether it's a ton of flowers or a small number of flowers, you still have to do it - and we did ours in six weeks. A planner allows the bride to focus on all the details.

"It was definitely a luxury to have someone be so helpful and willing to do that. But everything went so smoothly at my wedding, I can't think of anything that was a snafu."

"The Wedding Planner" is a full-out romantic comedy, but it deals with anxiety common among brides-to-be.

"I was very different from Fran, my character," Wilson-Sampras said. "She is having this thing of, `Oh my gosh! What am I doing?' She was checking in her heart for what she wanted. She'd kicked into autopilot. Personally, I didn't have those moments. One minute before I walked down the aisle, I hoped I wouldn't trip."

In "The Wedding Planner," Lopez and McConaughey experience love at first sight, which is no rarity in the movies. But Wilson-Sampras said she felt something pretty close.

"Love at first sight is so bizarre to me," she said. "Oh, you see someone walk in and you'll spend your life with this person? But it can happen very quickly with that chemistry and evolve into something special.

"Within three months I knew Pete was the person I wanted to spend my life with. I never had that before. People had said to me, `Oh, you'll know when it happens' - and I never trusted that. Until it actually happened."

Her instincts, she said, were confirmed at a party given by her sister.

"It was cool because we were doing these questions," Wilson- Sampras said. "My sister sat down and interviewed me, and then she interviewed him with all these questions. It was something fun she did for my bachelorette party. For instance, she asked me, `When did you know?' and `What was the first thing you noticed about him?' and `What was the first thing he noticed?' - and every single one of our answers was the same."

Wilson-Sampras says she didn't know much about Sampras' awesome athletic career - even though, at 29, he has been a world champion for 14 years.

"We met - it was not really a blind date; he'd seen me in a movie, `Love Stinks,' " she said. "He saw it in theaters when it first came out and he was half-joking with a friend when he said, `I'd like to meet her.' That friend got in touch with a friend of mine - and they were both at our wedding."

Their "first date" was "a little phone conversation. The first five minutes are painful and then you get over that hump. But I didn't know who he was. I hadn't watched tennis before and when somebody called and said his name, I wasn't sure who he was. I said, `Is he taller than me?' . . . Then I remembered I'd seen a picture and I saw his face and that was familiar but I hadn't put the two together, because I wasn't familiar with tennis.

"I don't play tennis and I never had a racket before in my life," she added. "He's very patient about it."

Pete Sampras was the top-ranked player in the world through most of the '90s. He has slipped somewhat from that lofty position, but the family isn't without a top ranking.

"The Wedding Planner" was No. 1 at the box office last weekend.

Pete on Bridgette
"I wouldn't be here, having won my 14th Major, if it wasn't for my wife."





" I was so focused for so long that I just kind of had enough of being # 1, just too much pressure. Tennis is still a big part of my life, but it's not what it used to be. I used to live and die with my wins and losses. I still get disappointed and frustrated, but there's more to life than tennis. I was ready to get married. Being married has given me a good balance out there."

"When I broke the record at Wimbledon a couple of years ago, it took a lot out of me. After that I didn't have that steel will week in, week out. I happened to get married a couple of months later. It was the best thing that happened to me. You know, it's what life's all about. You meet the woman of your dreams, you have a family. That's nice."

"There were moments where I was struggling to continue to play and, you know, my wife really supported me and kept me positive and kept me upbeat. That support was huge for me at this stage of my career."

"My wife is a big reason why I've been able to kind of get through this tough period. She lives with me every day - trust me, it's not easy. When you're struggling, you're not having fun - it's a burden. Just showed me that I met the right woman."

"I was struggling a little bit and some people thought it was about me being married. And it just felt good to kind of really show people they were wrong - good that we did it as a team. My wife supported me and was positive. And those are the moments you need someone. She was my rock that kept me going and it really is - it's something special. I don't speak a lot about my marriage. But I will say that I wouldn't be here, having won my 14th Major, if it wasn't for my wife. Because she knows how miserable I was this year and what I was going through."

"She was there for me. And that - it was why I married her. She is very selfless and will do whatever she can for me and has put her career aside for me. And it's really remarkable. And I'm still pretty amazed by it."
