Grand Slam no. 14: US Open 2002
In his 6-3, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 victory over long-time rival Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras extended his own record to 14 Grand Slam titles. He has raised the US Open's championship trophy five times, matching Jimmy Connors' open-era record. At 31, Pete has also become the event's oldest winner since Ken Rosewall who won it at 35 in 1970, and the oldest winner of any Slam since the man after whom the stadium in which he won it is named, Arthur Ashe, won Wimbledon in 1975 a month short of his 32nd birthday.
"This one might take the cake. This might be my biggest achievement so far, to come through a very, very tough time and to win the Open." - Pete Sampras, upon winning the US Open 2002, his 14th Grand Slam title.
