Pete Sampras will play in Chile

Pete Sampras talked about the match he will play against Marcelo Rios, another former world number one. Both players will meet on May 18, in a court at Arena, in Santiago de Chile.

“It will be very exciting to be there (in Chile). It will be a great opportunity for all of those who supported me through the TV, as they can now watch me live,” the American told La Tercera.

The Chilean was the one responsible for removing Sampras from the first place in the ATP ranking, after holding world number one title for 102 weeks.

Regarding such issue, the American said that Rios “was one of the greatest players at that time,” and added that “it was a great challenge to move him from the first place, as he was playing quite well.”
