Some Intro for the MAN. "When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour De France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam. When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, Big Country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to "open" the Nehruvian economy. It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will. "
Federer, Wawrinka take Switzerland to Davis Cup Final — Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka each have Grand Slam singles titles, and Olympic gold together in doubles. Now they can win Switzerland’s first Davis Cup trophy in the competition’s 114-year history. Federer carried the Swiss to a first final in 22 years, beating Fabio Fognini of Italy in the opening reverse singles yesterday for a winning 3-1 lead in their semifinal. France will host the final on November 21-23. Federer celebrated with skipping jumps across the court on completing a 6-2, 6-3, 7-6 (4) win against the 17th-ranked Fognini. “It’s fabulous to share in this moment,” Federer said in an on-court interview after being hoisted on the shoulders of Wawrinka and captain Severin Luethi for a lap of honour round the court. Their celebrations delighted a noisy 18,000-plus crowd at Palexpo indoor arena. Switzerland reached the final only once before, in 1992 against a United States team of Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, John Mcenroe and Pete ...
Roger Federer's 5 Most Unbreakable Records Federer has regained his spot at the top of the world rankings and now has the all-time record for most weeks at the top. No one knows how many more weeks he will spend there before finally passing on the reins for good. Those reins may go to Nadal, Djokovic or even Andy Murray, who made an impressive showing However, some of the records Roger is leaving behind will never be broken by any of his successors. Five such records in particular are unlike anything else accomplished in the sport of tennis It is a testament to Federer's consistency and longevity that his all-time record of 17 Grand Slam wins is fifth on this list. His Grand Slam wins record is often viewed as the most important to the game and the one that sets him apart as the greatest of all time. While this is true, it is not his most dominant record. Pete Sampras got 14 Slams in his career and Rafael Nadal has 11. Novak Djokovic might get into double digits as well. Roger's 58 percent Grand Slam-winn ...
Former World No.1 and 8-time Grand Slam champion Andre Agassi believes that current World No.1 Rafael Nadal is the greatest player ever, putting him ahead of the Swiss maestro Roger Federer, whom his contemporaries like Pete Sampras have claimed to be the greatest.
Tennis:Rafael Nadal and Mats Wilanderare the only two players in history who have won at least two Grand Slam titles on three different surfaces—hard court, grass, and clay. By winning the 2013 French Open, Nadal became the only male player to win a single Grand Slam tournament eight times and the first to win at least one Grand Slam tournament for nine consecutive years, breaking the record of eight consecutive years previously shared by Björn Borg, Pete Sampras, and Roger Federer
Lessons we all can learn from Pistol Pete Until Federer came along, Pete Sampras held the record for winning the most Grand Slam titles of any player in history. He is my favorite player and one of the greatest players of all time. His book offers the insight into what separates the very good ones from the great ones. Here are a few lessons that I have learnt from his book. Learning to Lose: Sampras speaks of the great challenge of handling the enormous pressure in junior tennis, especially at the national level. For him, it was about shifting his focus from the pressure to win to the PRESSURE TO DEVELOP A GREAT GAME. It wasn't about winning; it was about PLAYING WELL — playing “THE RIGHT WAY.” This helped him enjoy the game and maximize his potential. He learned how to handle losing without having his spirit or confidence broken. This lesson would later help him out of many jams in his career. He eliminated the fear of losing. He had no trouble letting go of a loss. He just trusted the team around ...
A versatile player, Novak Djokovic has won six Grand Slam titles, including three in a superlative 2011 season that saw him capture 10 tournament titles overall, post an ATP-best 70-6 record and seize the No. 1 ranking. In 2012, The world No. 1 added to his legacy in fighting back from a 2-4 fifth-set deficit to defeat Rafal Nadal, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5, and capture his third Australian Open championship in the longest Grand Slam final in history — a five hour, 53-minute epic. It was Djokovic's seventh straight win over Nadal and came after his five-set triumph over Andy Murray in the semifinals, marking the first time he had won back-to-back five-set matches. Djokovic became the fifth man in the Open Era to win three straight majors, joining Nadal, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Rod Laver. The top-seeded Serbian beat Andy Murray, 6-1, 7-6, to collect his third career Miami title without surrendering a set. It was Djokovic's 30th career title, including his 11th Masters crown, tying him with Pe ...
For those of us glued to our TV sets to watch Grand Slam Tournaments, this was an unfortunate first for us who have been fans more than 20 years: The Australian Open men's final ceremony was not shown in in it's 5 minutes of entirety. Fans were told to see it on NetFlix. Pay to see the former Pete Sampras present the trophy to a first time slam winner from Switzerland? This is unheard of. Cable TV users are more deserving than this.
So, come tomorrow, will equal Pete Sampras' Grand Slam final appearances and, almost certainly, his trophy haul.
Pete Sampras on Rafa Nadal (via BBC Sport): "I think he's incredible," Sampras told BBC Sport. "I saw him play live for the first time on Friday night and the movement he has is incredible. He's able to adjust his shots on the run. I've never seen anything like it. To see him play - he hits a very heavy ball, serves pretty well, he does everything. He's mentally tough - he has the whole package. And Sampras is in little doubt that Nadal, who will go for a ninth French Open title in June, has many more Grand Slam titles in him. "He's not looking at 14, he's looking beyond," said Sampras. "Realistically, he could very well get 17, 18 majors when it's all said and done. He's a credit to the sport. I'm a fan."
It will be Rafeal 14th Grand Slam tomorrow to equal Pete Sampras record.
Pete about "Rafa can win 17 or 18 Grand Slam. He has all the right things to do it."
set to equal Pete Sampras 14 Grand Slam titles in Tomz Aus Open final & Sampras will be handing over the trophy to the winner.
Caught the replay from last nights’ semifinals….what a performance by Rafa Nadal in his victory over Roger Federer! With the quicker conditions and strong form that Roger showed in his wins over Tsonga and Murray, he was hoping to make it a chance for another Grand Slam final however Rafa just couldn’t be denied. Rafa was stronger in all parts of the game and kept Roger pinned to the baseline with heavy ground strokes making it tough for him to attack. Could be an interesting final - Rafa, going for his 14th Grand Slam title to tie Pete Sampras for Grand Slam titles, has never lost to Stan Wawrinka (12-0). And even though it’s the first Grand Slam final for Stan, he’s had an incredible 15 months, playing with a lot of confidence and looks much more in control out there…who knows maybe is his lucky number.
"Rafael Nadal" beat Roger Federer in straight sets to advance to the Australian Open final. Nadal is now second on the list of players reaching Grand Slam finals, joining Ivan Lendl on 19 -- Federer leads the list with 24. Another Grand Slam title would lift Nadal to equal second on the all-time list with Pete Sampras, who was in the crowd for the match. "I tried a few things ... then again, Rafa does a good job of neutralizing you," Federer said. "So I guess at times I couldn't quite do what I wanted to do, but that's because of Rafa."
And that's that! It takes Rafael Nadal just 2 hours and 41 minutes to beat Swiss maestro Roger Federer. He's just one match from a 14th Grand Slam title which would take him level with Pete Sampras, just three behind Federer. SPORTS Asia
If Rafael Nadal wins the Australian Open, he'll tie Pete Sampras for 2nd all-time in Grand Slam titles with 14 (3 behind Roger Federer's record of 17). He'll also be just the 3rd men's tennis player all-time to win all four majors twice. And he'll likely win the French Open for the 9th time this year putting him just two behind Federer's record. Hard to call Federer the greatest of all-time if he ends up not even being the best of his own era.
Who are you going to be rooting for in Sunday's Australian Open Finals? Rafael Nadal or Stanislas Wawrinka? Note: Should Nadal win, he would match Pete Sampras with 14 Grand Slam singles titles, and he would become the first player in the Open Era to have won all four major tournament trophies twice each. He would also pull within three of Federer’s 17 major championships.
Blistering Nadal bursts Federer's bubble as Spaniard plays through the pain to reach Aussie Open final. Rafael Nadal put himself in sight of making yet more history as a brutally effective performance abruptly halted Roger Federer's revival at the Australian Open. The 27-year-old Spaniard is one victory away from becoming the first player in the modern era to win each Grand Slam twice after beating the great Swiss 7-6, 6-3, 6-4 in their semi-final. Watched by two all-time greats, Rod Laver and Pete Sampras, he knocked over another by registering his fifth consecutive win over Federer. Not even the continuing problems with blisters on the palm of his left hand could divert him from his task, and they are unlikely to stop him winning Sunday's final against the tournament's surprise package Stanislas Wawrinka, over who he has a 12-0 career record. A win would put him level with Sampras on 14 Grand Slam titles. A year ago Nadal was still waiting to make his comeback from long-term knee problems, yet here is, ...
Australian Open highlights: Rafael Nadal beats Roger Federer to set up final with Stanislas Wawrinka NDTVSports | Updated: January 24, 2014 17:39 IST Catch the highlights of the Australian Open semi-final between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at Melbourne Park. 17.02 (IST): So, Nadal eases past a resurgent Federer to enter another Australian Open final where Stanislas Wawrinka awaits him, having beaten defending champion Novak Djokovic in the quarters and Tomas Berdych in the semis. The chance of an all-Swiss final goes begging but can the high-flying Swiss get the better of Nadal and claim his first Grand Slam victory? Or will Nadal continue his form and win his 14th major to go on par with Pete Sampras? 17.00 (IST): FACTOID: Rafael Nadal's dominance over Roger Federer continued as he has now claimed as many as 23 wins over his Swiss compatriot, more than any other opponent. 16.59 (IST): Nadal: Wawrinka is playing very well and he will come to the final with a lot of confidence after beating Novak Djoko ...
World number 12 Sloane Stephens has hired legendary tennis mind Paul Annacone as her new coach. The second highest ranked American tennis star after Serena Williams made the appointment after a 'trial' in Los Angeles last month.Annacone split from Roger Federer after 3 1/2 years together in October and has worked with Tim Henman in the past too. However, he is most famous for being the long-time coach to multiple Grand Slam winner Pete Sampras
Dual champion Pete Sampras will make a rare grand slam appearance to present the Australian Open men's trophy
Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams didn’t need to win the U.S. Open, which concluded on Monday in New York, to join tennis’s pantheon; they have been a prominent part of it for some time now. Nadal had progressed from being a wrinkle in the argument that Roger Federer was the greatest male player of all time to being a contender for the honour himself. Serena, after her first-round defeat at Roland Garros last year, had dominated the women’s tour, winning three of five Grand Slam titles, an Olympic singles gold and causing former players of the stature of John Mcenroe, Martina Navratilova, and Chris Evert to suggest that there hadn’t been a better female player. Neither Nadal’s 13th major nor Serena’s 17th were records. Federer (17) and Pete Sampras (14) lead the men’s list while Margaret Court (24), Steffi Graf (22), Helen Wills Moody (19), Evert and Navratilova (18 each) top the women’s. But what Nadal’s second U.S. crown and Serena’s fifth did was advance their cases so strongly that ...

Wimbledon resumes today and our special highlight comes from the 2000 Championships where Pete Sampras took on the popular Aussie, Pat Rafter. One year earlier, Sampras had beaten his archrival Agassi in the finals, and equalled Roy Emerson’s record of 12 Grand Slam singles titles. Sampras entered this tournament injured (shin inflammation), and skipped practice sessions on his way to the finals. It proved to be a smart decision as he defeated Rafter for his seventh Wimbledon and thirteenth Grand Slam title.
In 2008,Pete Sampras notched a win to wrap up a three-match exhibition series against Roger Federer. Sampras never faced a break point and handed Federer a 7-6 (8), 6-4 defeat Saturday at the Venetian Macao arena, finishing 1-2 against the top-ranked Swiss player. Sampras downplayed his victory, noting Federer was coming off a long season and he was helped by his big serve and the fast indoor carpet surface. His goal was to win one set during the three-match series. "Let's not get carried away," he said at a news conference. Sampras ruled out a comeback from retirement, telling the audience after the match, "I had my time in the '90s." The two players have won a combined 26 Grand Slam titles, but the 36-year-old Sampras retired five years ago after winning the U.S. Open in 2002. Federer, 26, won three Grand Slams this year and the Masters Cup last week en route to a 68-9 record. "I'm sort of surprised. This guy can play tennis, you know," Federer said after his loss.
Ten years after Roger Federer made his Grand Slam breakthrough at Wimbledon, the 17-time major winner returns to the All England Club next week as defending champion, but with the clock ticking. The Swiss put his growing army of critics firmly in their place in 2012 when, after back-to-back quarterfinal defeats, he captured his seventh Wimbledon title, equalling the record of Pete Sampras. Federer, meanwhile, ended a 10-month title drought at the weekend when he won the Halle grasscourt tournament for the sixth time – it was his first piece of silverware since Cincinnati on the eve of the 2012 US Open. That would have spiced up his confidence ahead of Wimbledon, but there are huge doubts over whether or not he can carry that spring in his elegant step onto the famous lawns of south-west London and be the first man to win Wimbledon eight times. Age is a factor. Federer will be 32 in August while Sampras won the last of his Wimbledon titles as a 28-year-old in 2000. An eighth victory for Federer next mont ...

Nadal has chance to make history By SAPA Paris – Rafael Nadal can become the first man to win the same Grand Slam title eight times at the French Open with few willing to risk talking down the rejuvenated Spaniard's chances. Having pulled clear of Bjorn Borg's record of six wins at Roland Garros with a seventh championship in 2012, the 26-year-old has already confounded the critics who had written him off during a seventh-month injury absence. Since his return to the tour in February, Nadal has shaken off the heartbreak of missing the Olympics, as well as the US and Australian Opens, to collect six titles from eight finals. Super-charged by that astonishing run, Nadal now has the opportunity to genuinely confirm himself as one of the greats of the sport. No man has ever collected more than seven titles at the same major. Roy Emerson, with six, is the Australian Open's most successful while William Renshaw, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer all triumphed at Wimbledon seven times each. Bill Larned, Bill Tild ...

Dubai: Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have played in the last two Grand Slam finals and it's easy to imagine their rivalry overshadowing an aging Roger Federer and an injury-plagued Rafael Nadal in the years to come. But the second-ranked Federer will have none of it. As he prepares to defend his Dubai Championships title, the 31-year-old Federer said on Sunday he is playing "excellent tennis" and is confident he can overtake Djokovic for top spot although he acknowledged it will be a challenge given that he plans to scale back his schedule in 2013. He plans to take several weeks off ahead of the start of the clay season. "Absolutely realistic, if you play great," Federer said of returning to No. 1, a spot he last held for 17 weeks until Oct. 29, 2012 , breaking a record of 286 weeks at the top held by Pete Sampras. "The question is will I be able to do that or will I be allowed. Time will tell," Federer said. "I know it's possible. I know it's possible to win tournaments. But right now, a big focus is on ...
Several years ago Steve Epstein, who has about the same number of Producer Of The Year Grammy Awards as Pete Sampras has Grand Slam titles, sent me the sound track recording he’d produced of the musical “The Light In The Piazza.” I listened once to the score, written by Adam Guettel, (who also contributed the lyrics) and fell in love with the song “Love To Me,” but hurried through the rest of the recording. Several days ago I decided to write a blog about the unique qualities of this gorgeous song, delivered by Matt Morrison, who would become known to millions when he accepted a starring role in the television show “Glee.” “The Light In The Piazza” received mixed reviews when it was released in 2005. Based on a novella of the same name written by Elizabeth Spencer, the plot centers around a wealthy American woman who takes her 20-something daughter to Italy on vacation. The young woman, saddled with a mysterious malady that’s revealed late in the production, falls in love with a ha ...
BIRTHDAYS: Marat Safin born January 27, 1980 is a Russian politician and retired tennis player of Tatar ethnicity. Safin won two grand slam tournaments and reached the World No. 1 ranking during his career. He was also famous for his emotional outbursts and sometimes fiery temper on court. Safin also holds the record for most broken racquets in a year with 87. Safin is the older brother of former World No. 1 WTA player Dinara Safina. They are the first brother-sister tandem in tennis history to both achieve No. 1 rankings. Safin began his professional career in 1997, and held the No. 1 world ranking for a total of 9 weeks between November 2000 and April 2001. He won his first Grand Slam title at the 2000 U.S. Open after defeating Pete Sampras, and won the 2005 Australian Open, defeating Australian Lleyton Hewitt in the final. Safin helped lead Russia to Davis Cup victories in 2002 and 2006. Despite his dislike of grass courts, he became the first Russian man to reach the semi-finals of Wimbledon at ...
John Mcenroe spoke in "Mats Point" on the season of Roger Federer : "He is incredible. I think we all thought the negative and he was not going to win more Grand Slam titles, I think Wimbledon represented his best chance to achieve that but the guy he likes tennis so much! so he likes to be on the court and this is one of the keys to his success, he is able to digest large losses ... he has managed to do this year. When Wimbledon came he has to raise his game when he had to, he was able to do so again. the guy is truly amazing. I think he can beat Djokovic best of five sets, but it clearly depends surface! Roger has defeated Novak at Roland Garros, Wimbledon ago I think it is really the king with Pete Sampras ... they are the biggest in history! There is a little more but it happens to find the path to success on grass and I think it will be present. it is clear that more older you get more it becomes difficult, I hope that some can compete with Roger but he showed that it was amazing physically, he is ra ...

Today i declare, after Andre Agassi, Roger Federer is the 2nd Greatest Tennis Player to have ever born on Earth... I was confused whom to support before match but i guess now i know the answer... Andy Murray will Wimbledon for sure as he has many more years...ALLAH must have written much better script for him...ALLAH had to show why Great Britain is called Great...Even when he lost, their support was amazing...Such a Great nation...Their 74 year wait came to an end and they will soon see a Brit winning a title and that surely would be Andy Murray...It was emotional to see Murray in tears, his mother in tears, his lovely girlfriend in tears, British crowd in tears but their tears would turn into smiles when he would win Wimbledon :) But had Federer lost today, he may not have got record he deserved the most...Record 17th Grand Slam title, record equalling 7th Wimbledon title and record equalling World no. 1 for 286 weeks now and would break Pete Sampras's record next week...

What a day for tennis; either Federer will match the number of titles won at Wimbledon with the great Pete Sampras or Britain will have their first male grand slam winner since Fred Perry in 1936
He may as well have landed from Mars as far as the Centre Court crowd were concerned but after Thursday it is unlikely Rafa Nadal or any other sports fan will forget the Czech's name. Playing a brand of fearless and brash tennis many journeyman dream of but only the brave produce, Wimbledon debutant Rosol caused one of the biggest ever upsets seen on a tennis stage when he jettisoned Nadal in the second round with a heart-pumping 6-7 6-4 6-4 2-6 6-4 victory. It left the Spaniard shell-shocked, the crowd stunned and Rosol blinking in disbelief as he added his name to a select band of players who have dared to bring the mighty down to their knees. Peter Doohan conquered Boris Becker in the second round in 1987, George Bastl tamed Pete Sampras at the same stage in 2002 and Ivo Karlovic felled defending champion Hewitt Lleyton on the opening day in 2003 but Rosol's heroics surpassed them all as Nadal has been an omnipresent force in the final three days of a Grand Slam. The 11-times Grand Slam champion featur ...
Pete Sampras is on the scene to see if Roger Federer can break his 14 Grand Slam title record
Rafael Nadal beats Novak Djokovic to win seventh French Open Rafael Nadal won a record seventh French Open title after ruthlessly snuffing out Novak Djokovic's comeback to win 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 in a rain-affected final. Nadal resumed leading 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-2, but his uncharacteristic wobble late on Sunday had fuelled Djokovic's belief. The Spaniard broke back in the first game of the day however, and then piled pressure on an unsettled Djokovic. The Serb finally folded with a double fault to hand Nadal an 11th Grand Slam. Having drawn level with Bjorn Borg on six Roland Garros titles last year, the victory gave Nadal sole ownership of the landmark, and the 26-year-old is likely to have plenty of opportunities to stretch further clear. The only three men to have more Grand Slam victories - Roger Federer with 16, Pete Sampras on 14 and Roy Emerson on 12 - are now in his sights. The crowd had returned to Court Philippe Chatrier entertaining the possibility that they may witness a different piece of tennis histo ...
