    If Sampras came back he'd probably be at around 100. He probably on occasion beat top 10 players but would find it physicaly exhausted to play day in and out. I think Pete caught Agassi's hair lost virus. Pete you shouldn't have shook hands with Andre now look at you!

    I noticed Roger was wearing his wrist watch too. He difinitely was out there to have fun. I believe Pete was being more competitive. Interesting matches though.

    It was great seeing two hall of famers in these exhibitions!Roger...our current No#1, and Sampras,our former No#1.Both wonderful ambassadors of tennis.I certainly enjoyed watching it,and regardless of the results,it was both done in favour of tennis,the players themselves,and tennis fans.I loved watching Pete Sampras in his days,until he retired,in which Roger took over as brilliantly as Sampras did!Roger now delivers tennis wonderfully across the world.Pete sampras and Andre Agassi ,Michael Chang and John McEnroe,Edber,Becker,and Bjorn Borg made me pick up my first Ilie Nastase wooden Racket in 1992.Now,i admire Federers genius,and what he can do with a tennis racket.Cant wait for Wimbledon 2008,hoping to get Center Court tickets to see him again... Would it be nice to see SAMPRAS VS FEDERER exhibition in WIMBLEDON!!!

    Roger did not even took off his wrist watch. Did anyone see him do that in the tour? Don't think so.
