Pete Sampras and Roger Federer on the plane to India. Pete is scheduled to play against Pat Rafter and Goran Ivanisevic.
In an interview published in the Men’s Journal, Stan Wawrinka, the Australian Open 2014 champion was asked who his favorite player was when he was a kid.
“Sampras,” Wawrinka said. “Always Pete Sampras.”
“You know the quote, right?” I asked. “Sampras said after Australia that he wished he had your backhand.”
He cracked up.
“Yeah, and I want his trophies.”
Thanks to Joy for putting together this card on behalf of Samprasfanz. Ryan’s birthday is on July 29th.
