Pete Sampas in Omaha

Pete Sampras was at the Rock-n-Racquets tennis exhibition event at the Qwest Center in Omaha last Friday, December 17.

A celebrity doubles match featured Pete playing with billionaire Warren Buffett.

Thereafter, Pete teamed up with Sam Querrey for another doubles match against the Bryan brothers. It was a close match that went to a tiebreaker, with the Bryan twins winning.

The featured match was between Sampras and Querrey – substituting for injured Andy Roddick. It was a pro set wherein the first to win 8 games wins the match.

Our Samprasfanz President Joy watched the match and reported that Pete’s son, Christian was in the audience with Gus (Pete’s brother) and Gus’ little girl. “You could just see that Pete wanted to play well tonight. He ran for balls, hit overheads, hit drop shots, running forehands and backhands,” described Joy. “He had two incredible rallies where there were a ton of volleys and he ended up winning the points.”

Pete won the match 8-4.

“During his interview, he was asked how he felt playing in front of his son,” Joy continued. “Pete started to say that Christian was such a good boy and suddenly began to break down”
