Venus, Serena and Pete

For years the Williams Sisters have been saying nice things about Sampras.
Has he ever uttered a word of thanks or acknowledgement for them? I have never heard him say anything about Venus or Serena.
He's a great champion, but he is an azz.

He said "Venus just hits her serve, she doesn't know where it's going".

oh yeah, I remember that. He also asked Venus one time if her hair was real or fake. What a jerk.

It def. says something about thier character

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: Venus, Serena and Pete

I've never really liked Pete. He's always come off as very pompus and full of himself. He can't stand the fact that Roger might take over his record of majors won prob less than a decade since he got the record himself, so he tries to belittle it by saying that Roger doesn't have the competition that he did. Pete, he beat you when he was 19 on your best and favorite court, so stfu!!! And competition, HA!!!! I really don't remember too much of his later on through the years. Andre was in and out the game all the time. Boris was at the end. Rafter was just a mediocore player all-around. Chang was a one-slam wonder. McEnroe and Connors were retired. Lendel was at the end. Edberg was finishing up his career. Courier was burnt out after only 2-3 years. So really, his competition wasn't much different. And when people look back on Rog, they won't say he was all serve.

Onto the Williams sisters. That comment he made about Venus was a while ago. Back then, Venus had even worse mechanics on the serve and sometimes it really didn't look like she never where it was going. But, there was no need to say that when Venus could make the same comment about Pete's backhand. Anyways, no he really hasn't said anything nice about and much less anything nice about anyone other than maybe Laver and little compliments about Roger and Andre. No-one else really.

Re: Venus, Serena and Pete

Wasn't he the one who refused to dance with Venus at the Wimbledon ball?
Or was it that douche Hewitt?

Re: Venus, Serena and Pete

I bet the Sampras family would have something to say if Serena decided not to play in their tournament at the Home Depot Center in Carson.
I am surprised Richard has not called Sampras out.

He also made some jackass comment about Serena's hair...I can't wait for Roger to eclispe pete's career.

Re: Venus, Serena and Pete

That's right. I can't wait till Roger busts his record. Roger says, "I like it when the Williams Sisters win." From class (Roger) to azz (Pete)
