What he doesn't know is that Roger invited him to his room because he wanted to hang out with Brigette .
I guess not.Seriously though, didn't Sampras ever have close friends in the tour?
:worship::worship::worship:I think what Roger did, i.e. the exhibitions really shows what a nice person he is.
You can say it was for the money all you want, but in my opinion, with the all the money and smarts he has, Federer isn't desperate to play an exho to pocket some cash.
Add to it, that he had absolutely nothing to gain. If he won, he beat an old retired player, if he lost, then he got beaten by and old retired player, and he would get criticism for that.
So why did he do it? I am biased, being a Sampras fan, but part of me thinks he mostly did it for Pete. Out of respect, he gave his former idol a chance to play him. And he pretty much carried the match and let Pete have a lot of fun, and all the spotlight.
I respect Federer a lot for that. And I'm grateful that he did it, because I got a chance to watch my favorite player in action again. And like Pete says, he really didn't have to do this, especially after a long grueling season.
So Roger: thank you, you're a true gentleman.
