Statue Petition

Petition for a Pete Sampras Statue

To All Pete Sampras Fans,

Pete Sampras, winner of 14 Grand Slams is a tennis legend who needs to be remembered not only by his tennis fans worldwide, but by all who attend the U.S. Open and all who see the Grand Slam on television. For this reason, we believe that a statue of Pete at the U.S. Open would be a wonderful way of giving recognition to his great tennis.

Please sign our petition to send to the USTA asking them to erect a statue of Pete at the U.S. Open in New York in recognition of his many years of great tennis.

What better way to show thanks and honor for the greatest tennis player ever? Pete Sampras deserves a statue more than any one. Let's make it happen.

Unequivocally, the best tennis player, ever. It amazes me how easily these "expert" commentators circumvent the fact that he was number 1 for 286 consecutive weeks; the emphasis seems always to be placed on the lack of a French Open title.

A statue in his honor would not only be a tremendous gesture, it is also necessary.

Pete Sampras is an icon in tennis, the best that has ever played. Throughout his record-breaking career, he demonstrated excellent character and sportsmanship, always behaving courageously when faced with adversity. Although he certainly had years of happiness with his many successes, he also showed what it takes to battle through the difficult times. He is truly a role model to which all players and fans can aspire. Pete Sampras deserves to be recognized at the home of the American grand slam, the US Open. A statue erected in his honor would be a fitting tribute.

OOPS! I thought the statue was for Wimbledon where he won so many titles. Oh, well, a statue of Pete anywhere would be a great honor to him

I think it would be a great show of respect to the man who won 7 wimbledons out of 8 - the most for any tennis player, to have a statue of him to stand forever in England. He often said it was his favorite Grand Slam of all of them.

A statue would be a reminder that from the world of tennis, there once was and always will be a true champion, a living legend, a classy sportsman named Pete Sampras whom children can emulate. He deserves to be honored and remembered.
