Pete Sampras – The Legend of Tennis

Multiple winner of Grand Slam tournaments, for several years was the first racket of the world. The future champion was born in Washington on August 12, 1971 in a Greek family. His father, Soterios Sampras, worked as an engineer, his mother did not work, she was a housewife. Parents called son Petros. Pete’s father was a big fan of tennis and spent his free time on the court with pleasure. When the boy was 7 years old, his father began to teach him how to play tennis. The intense game sometimes ended in a swoon, because Pete has a rare disease associated with a lack of iron in the blood. 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. When Pete was 9 years old, his doctor and amateur player Pete Fisher became his coach at the request of his father. The coach was happy to work with a capable student and managed to instill in the young tennis player the style that later became Sampras’s hallmark. The style contained elements of an aggressive game with lightning fast outputs to the grid. At the age of 14, Sampras, on the advice of a trainer, changed the two-handed left punch to the famous one-handed one in the future. At major children’s tournaments, Sampras was rarely the winner, as the coach claimed him in the older age categories. Fisher’s tactic was to get Sampras to gain experience by playing with a stronger opponent. At age 16, Pete becomes a professional and refuses to train with Fisher. Today in the world invented a huge variety of sports equipment. One of these shells is elliptical trainers, available not only to athletes, but also to people of different ages and at any level of physical fitness. Without overloading the tendons and ligaments, they evenly distribute the load on the main muscle groups and support the body in excellent physical shape. Three years later, in 1990, an unknown athlete who occupied the 81st place in the rating, Pete Sampras became the champion at the US Open, the youngest champion who was only 19 months old a month ago. The young tennis player is focused on the attention of the press, friends and, of course, rivals. However, in 1991, a miracle did not happen, Pete lost in the ¼ finals of the US Championship. His game is immediately criticized. However, in 1992 he won five ATP tournaments and won the Davis Cup as part of the US national team. Finally, in 1993 he won Wimbledon, and on April 12 of the same year he won the US Open again and became the first racket of the world. After that, Pete Sampras for five consecutive years ranks first in the world ranking, annually remaining the best tennis player in the world. However, in 1995, the first line in the world ranking was taken for several months by an American of Armenian origin Andre Agassi. In 1995, Sampras lost to Agassi the Australian Open final. In total, he won 14 times in the Grand Slam finals, and lost only twice. For a long time Agassi was the main rival of Sampras on the court. Their meetings at the most important tournaments were held with varying success, with the only difference being that, having lost, Agassi could temporarily withdraw from the elite of world tennis. The steadfast, restrained Sampras always remained in this elite. The battle of these world tennis stars almost ended in a draw, because both opponents left the court almost simultaneously. Pete Sampras left a little earlier. In 2002, he last won the US Open. More at tournaments, he did not speak. In total, the famous tennis player won 64 victories in single-player tournaments, won twice in a pair, he won 7 victories at Wimbledon, 2 in Australia and 5 at the US Open (USA). In total, the athlete won 14 victories in the Grand Slam championships, only Roger Federer, who won 16 times, managed to get around his result. Sampras has no win on Roland Garros on the long list of victories. A fast and fast athlete felt much more confident on the courts with a fast coating (grass, hard) than on slow clay courts. Pete Sampras is married to actress Bridget Wilson. In 2002, they had a son. By the way, after Agassi was also born an heir, former indomitable rivals made a bet: if their sons in the future have a chance to compete on the tennis court, which of them will become the winner. Today, Pete Sampras writes books, participates in veteran tournaments and devotes all his free time to his family.
