Pete Sampras may be edging closer to calling it quits. The 14-time Grand Slam champion said last night he will not play Roland Garros or Wimbledon this year, but stressed he has not yet reached a decision on whether to retire or continue playing professional tennis.


The 14-time Grand Slam champion has not played a match since beating archrival Andre Agassi in the 2002 U.S. Open final last September. The seven-time Wimbledon winner asked organizers of the Stella Artois Championships — a popular Wimbledon tune-up tournament — to reserve a wild card for him leading to speculation he was contemplating a return to tournament tennis at Wimbledon.

Last night, Sampras, who was attending the Lakers-Spurs playoff game, told ABC's Michele Tafoya he will not play Wimbledon or Roland Garros, but revealed he was not ready to make a retirement announcement.
