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.

yes :thumbup: , this is a great idea :light: , Wimby's next, but the US Open is where the Champ was born, his first crown. There needs to be a way for future fans (30-40 years) to remember Sampras as the champion he will always be to us.

Pete is not only the greatest American tennis player ever, but he is also the greatest tennis player of all time. The USA's Grand Slam tennis center should honor Pete with a statue at the very least.

What better idol could we have for our children than Pete Sampras? His never quit, never give up attitude, his good sportsmanship as well as passion and drive to accomplish his feat. All things we hope to see in our children. A statue of Pete would be a fantastic reminder of all his superb attributes.

Pete Sampras is an icon for all future American tennis players. His grit, sacrifice and determination to do what needed to be done to win 14 Grand Slam tournaments in spite of a blood disease and a field of challenging opponents entitles him to be honored with a statue at Flushing Meadows. Pete has given tennis a champion who deserves to be remembered for all time.

Pete sampras never did receive the credit he deserved for the records he set. It is certainly fitting that a Statue of Sampras be erected at Flushing Meadows. Hopefully, it should be of Pete in the act of serving. Future generations that go to the Open should see the beauty of this amazing serve. WE have been blessed!

A glance at the record book shows many reasons why Pete Sampras is the greatest tennis player of all time. But it doesn't show that Pete achieved all this despite the little-known fact that he suffers from a permanent blood disorder, thalassaemia, which lowers his stamina and energy levels. So Sampras' determination and fighting spirit are equally admirable. Additionally, he is a fine role model for young people. For all these reasons, there should be a statue of Pete Sampras at Flushing Meadows. America, be proud of one of your greatest athletes and honour him accordingly!

Pete Sampras represents the best of tennis in skill, competitiveness, sportsmanship and work ethic. A statue at the Open would be most appropriate.

It is befitting that American tennis formally recognize our greatest American Male Tennis Pro for: 1. His 6 years as #1; 2. His Record-Making 14 Grand Slams and numerous other titles; 3. His courage to play in times of illness, injury or stress; 4. The exemplary example he set for all American sportsmanship and for our youth; 5. For the American values he displayed such as hard work, persistance, dedication, and upholding values such as clean living, home and family. 6. For his public and charitable donations of time and resources. It would honor all of us to recognize his achievements by placing a statue of him at Flushing Meadows, home of the great United States Tennis Open. Thank you.
