Pete Sampras Interview @ The Dan Patrick Show

Tennis legend Pete Sampras joined The Dan Patrick show to talk about his recent showdown with Andre Agassi and more.

Sampras talked about the challenges of family life. He has boys who are 5 and 8.

Dan asked Sampras where his relationship with Andre Agassi is right now. “We’re fine,” Sampras said, although he didn’t sound enthused.
Sampras said that he and Agassi probably regret a spat they had at a charity match for Haiti. They talked the next day and were immediately ready to move on, even though the media blew it out of proportion.

“It was one moment out of 15 years. It wasn’t a big deal to me,” Sampras said.

Sampras had interesting comments on Roger Federer. He said that if someone had to break his records, he’s glad it’s someone like Federer.
Sampras said Andy Roddick is quite there with Federer and Rafael Nadal when it comes to athleticism.

“I think Andy’s done great,” Sampras said. “To be up there with Roger and Rafa is tough. I’m not sure he has the whole package.”
