Greg-Pete fan said:What do you think about Pete`s parents - Sam (Soterios) and Georgia (some people say "Gloria")? Here I give you one photo of them (when they were young)
ella andry said:His parents are very humble people, especially his mother. I have seen her for a first time at Wimbledon 2000. and she did not say a word how she feels after Pete breaking Grand Slam record. She is very humble and normal person. I think she was very poor (she comes from a big family- I think six brothers and sisters) before coming to USA. :sad: :wavey:
Hwo old was she at the time? What do u think, do their children speak Greek? :wavey:angiel said:Yep, they are very humble folks, both mom & dad, she is from greece and came here to the US a poor young lady, didn't speak any english at all. :wavey: :angel: :angel: :angel: :angel:

Greg-Pete fan said:Great photos :worship: But I can`t find photo of Georgia. She was in this special Wimbledon 2000 final too Their parents appeared also in 1992 U.S. Open final... Pete lost to Stefan Edberg :sad: Soterios was during Davis Cup 1995 final in Moscow too , but they rarely went on Pete`s matches
To be exact, Pete doesn't speak greek but he understands it, his mother sometimes used to talk him in greek.angiel said:I think she was about 20 years old or so, ( will check for right age) I am not sure if they do speak Greek, I know Pete does not.
Correction - his mom was 25 years old, when she came to the States.
