Extra! Sampras pulls out of Wimbledon ...

.. tuneup.

* Not enough room for that last word *
----
June 5, 2002


LONDON (AP) -- Pete Sampras has pulled out of next week's Queen's Club grass-court tournament, marking only the second time since 1989 he will miss the Wimbledon warmup event.
-----

Pete should be able to get past the first round at Wimbey.
I think.

Didn't Pete choose to play at Gerry Weber Open, in Halle, Germany instead?

At this stage, Pete may need the grass court practice before, his possible last, Wimbledon.

Tee Rexx- why are you suggesting it would be his last?

He says he intends to play on for a couple more years.

Unless this is just you assuming things again.

Rebecca - I do not think that a player, who has been at the top for so long, will continue to subject himself to humiliating first and second round losses.

Say good bye to Pete.

no way, pete is a champion, he gonna wins at least one more big or small title before he retires and miranda has told him not to do so, and he agrees

sorry miranda, but TeeRexx is Pete's current manager right now. He call the shots as far as Pete's career is concerned.
