No, he won't and he even said this himself:Sampras looks good, and He still can play great tennis today
but, He is 36
So, Will he come back at Age of 36?????????????

This year, the first night match was actually an exhibition, between Pete Sampras and Tommy Haas. I've been a skeptic in the burgeoning Sampras-comeback debate that's sprung up since he's begun playing the one-off matches and seniors events: after all, he's 36, has been off the tour for over five years, and was struggling to win matches in the run up to his amazing 2002 US Open win. While he might still be able to win matches against current pros on a fast surface, he'd be a dangerous floater rather than a tournament threat.
Still, he looked impressive in his 6-4, 6-2 win over Haas in San Jose on Monday night. The leaping overhead has lost a little of its height but the serve and volleys are still lose to those of yore. Comparing his potential competitiveness on tour from these exhibitions, though, is tricky because the other player isn't playing at full intensity. It was less of a surprise that Sampras defeated Haas than the win he scored over Roger Federer in one of their three Asian exhibitions in the winter, but even then, Sampras told the crowd after the match that "Tommy was pretty nice to me tonight."
Sampras is clearly taking the relevance of these contests a lot less seriously than many of those watching, particularly in terms of what they mean to the players facing him. "Tommy has more important things to do this week than worry about me. It's an opportunity for him to get used to the court. It's tough to get practice time here."
The comeback talk may continue, but his stance makes it unlikely that it'll actually happen. "There's a lot to lose and not a lot to gain," he said firmly. "There's got to be a reason to come out of retirement. Some people miss the limelight, some people want to make more money, some people don't have anything else to do in their lives. And there's no reason for me to come back.
"I don't miss the limelight, I don't need the money, I -- the tricky thing with me is that I stopped not because of injury, it was more of an emotional level. I could still play at a high level, it's just emotionally I was spent."
And with 14 Grand Slams and six year-end No. 1 finishes, he has fulfilled his main goals.
