His father, Soterios Sampras, worked as an engineer, his mother did not work, she was a housewife. Parents called son Petros.

However, the disease did not prevent him from making a brilliant, dizzying career as one of the most successful and famous tennis players of the 90s of the twentieth century.

Rod Laver

Rod Laver, nicknamed “Rocket” was named the greatest tennis player of the twentieth century, and for good reason. He is the only player (among men and women) in the history of tennis, whose victories in majors have allowed him to become the holder of the Grand Slam in singles twice. He won the first “Grand Slam” in 1962, when he was an amateur, but the next year Rod became a professional, where in 1967 he also won the “Professional Grand Slam”.

With the beginning of the “Open Era” in 1968, Laver, like other professionals, again began to take part in the Grand Slam tournaments.

He got his second “Grand Slam” in 1969. Continue reading
