Sampras pulls out of Indian Wells tourney [Mar 7, 2003]

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Pete Sampras withdrew from next week’s Pacific Life Open, tournament organizers said Friday.

Sampras has not played competitively since winning the U.S. Open in September. Sampras, 31, also withdrew from tournaments in San Jose and Scottsdale in February. Sampras has been practicing with coach Paul Annacone, and does not believe he is ready yet to return, according to The Los Angeles Times.

After winning at the Open, Sampras said he was going to take some time off but was planning on resuming his career. It is unknown whether Sampras will be ready to return to play in the Nasdaq 100 Open in Miami, which begins on March 17.

Sampras has won a record 14 Grand Slam singles titles.
