Pete Sampras has been my childhood sports idol and apparently am not the only one. A very good friend of mine iWalkU2 is an avid fan of this former No.1 Tennis Star. Before I do talk about Pete Sampras let me give you a little background about my friend - iWalkU2 has been an amazing friend to me but more than anything I was primarily drawn to her amazing website due to the vivid and lively images of her travels and experiences. Most of it is about China and Tibet, and from what I have learned through her is so spectacular. The way she uses her camera lenses to show you her world through her eyes will definitely keep you captivated and craving for more. I myself can't wait for the holidays to hit and come over to see the magical places she has shown and much more.
Now with all that said I do hope you come and visit her and check it out yourself. In the meantime let's go back to topic.
Petros "Pete" Sampras (born August 12, 1971, in Washington, D.C.) is a former World No. 1 tennis player from the United States of America. During his 15-year career, he won a record 14 Grand Slam men's singles titles (two Australian Open, seven Wimbledon, five US Open), and had a 203–38 win-loss record over 52 Grand Slam singles tournament appearances.
He debuted on the professional tour in 1988 and played his last top-level game in 2002. He was the year-end World No. 1 for six consecutive years (1993–1998), a record for the open era and tied for third all-time. His seven Wimbledon singles championships is a record shared with William Renshaw. His five US Open singles titles is an open era record shared with former World No. 1s Jimmy Connors and Roger Federer. He is considered to be one of the greatest players of all time. The American journalist and television sportscaster Bud Collins has named Sampras as one of the top five men's tennis players of all-time, and Tennis Magazine has named him the greatest tennis player from 1965 to 2005. On July 17, 2007, Sampras was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
