from The Sampras Family (May 2004)

This note is coming to all of you who so graciously gave Christian one of the most amazing and most thoughtful gifts! The trees that have been dedicated to him in the woodland Trust at Hucking Estate are the perfect Gift. He Loves Trees! At nap time we always head outside to let him sleep under the trees and for the first few months of his life he would sit in his bouncy seat and just watch the tree branches sway in the wind for the longest time. Having said that, Thank-You Thank-You these trees are something that we as a family and Christian will always treasure!

Christian is getting so big. He is such a Happy, Healthy and active little boy. (We are in the May Issue of RedBook magazine together. It is a Mother's Day Issue so Dad isn't in the photos, but Daddy's pride and joy is.) Also, watch for Dad and Son to be in "Tennis Magazine" soon. (I think it's the June or July issue.)

Hope you are all doing well. We miss seeing you all in various parts of the world... but our appreciation for your support of Pete and for us as a family will never change.

Thank-you for always making the important moments in our life.... "Special."

With Love,
Pete, Bridgette & Christian

Samprasfanz "King Of Swing" T-shirt Project 2002

Samprasfanz has donated as a group to Tim and Tom Guillikson Foundation in previous years. In the Summer of 2002, a group of us got together and organized the "King of Swing" T shirt project. Over the next few months, over 100 shirts were sold to members all over the world. We raised US$4000 all donated to The Tim and Tom Guillikson Foundation. Thank you to everyone who supported the project, the foundation and Pete!

Please click on the FRONT and BACK of the shirt for larger views

Samples of this shirt were given to Pete and Bridgette at Wimbledon 2002.

Banner Projects

The Samprasfanz banners made their debut at the Australian Open 2000. Since then, the banners have been travelling all over the world following Pete in each of his tournaments. With 3 additional banners, we now have a total of 5 banners! Go PETE!!!

They are photographed and picked up by journalists and TV commentators in various tournaments. Read more about the banner project here.

Promoting Samprasfanz

With a great number of Samprasfanz attending the 1999 Great American Insurance Championships Tennis Masters Series at Cincinnati, Joy Parker created a 'business card' for distribution to Pete's fanz to let them know about Samprasfanz. 

The card shows the old group name - eGroups.
