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.
Hwo old was she at the time? What do u think, do their children speak Greek?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. :angel: :angel: :angel: :angel:

Greg-Pete fan said:Great photos 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 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.
