Sampras to play Agassi

MACAU: Tennis legends Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi will renew their epic rivalry later this year for the first time since the US Open final in 2002. The Americans, who played each other 34 times, have not faced off since Sampras won that classic match and then retired. But they will be back on court at the Venetian Macau Showdown on October 25 for an exhibition. “I really enjoy playing, keeping sharp and staying in shape. It’s great to see Andre playing again as well, after the problems with his back,” said Sampras. Between them they have won 22 Grand Slams.
