    With Roger Federer's recent upsets in the 08' Australian Open against Novak Djokovic and losing against Andy Murray in the '08 Dubai Championships, I think Pete can beat Roger, if he were 100% serious. Since Pete is more relaxed and less serious about tennis, he's just going to have some fun and give the crowd a nice show. One thing is for sure, it'll be exciting to watch.

    I'm from "Korea(south)" and Pete and Roger had come to Seoul to have exibition match. Roger won the game. Roger came to Korea twice and Pete came once. I really want "Roger and Lee(Hyungtaik)","Pete and Lee" to have exibition match in Seoul. Lee is Korea number 1 tennis player. I love tennis more than any other sports.

    FEDERER & PETE HAVE BEEN MY IDOL - I THINK SAMPRAS WILL WIN - FEDERER SEEMS TO BE OUT OF SORTS LATELY - I THINK HE IS GETTING BORED - MAKING ALL HIS FANS VERY SAD - I WISH BOTH OF THEM ALL THE LUCK THEY MAY OR MAY NOT NEED - GAME ON

    Just a note to Sampras fans stating Federer couldn't handle Pete on grass, Federer beat Pete at Wimb. The match is on DVD and Pete played well but Federer prevailed.

    Even though they are only ten years apart, its hard to compare the two if they were both in their prime.Sampras is probably a little better head to head, but the overall tour is so much stroger and deeper than ten years ago. Pete's 14 Slam titles would surely be less. It would be great for him to still play in the Slams.
