CARSON, Calif. (AP)-- Just like old times: Pete Sampras vs. Jim Courier.

The two retired Grand Slam champions and former No. 1-ranked players will square off in a best-of-3-sets exhibition match Aug. 7 during the WTA Tour stop in Carson.

Sampras and Courier played 20 times as pros, with Sampras winning 16, including their only major final: at Wimbledon in 1993.

Sampras won a record 14 Grand Slam titles, while Courier finished with four.

"Jim and I have played some great tennis matches over our careers so it's exciting to have the chance to rekindle our friendly rivalry in my backyard," said Sampras, who grew up in southern California.

Said Courier: "I look forward to renewing our rivalry."
