Quotes of Pete Sampras

американский теннисист

  • ⋅The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅It's not my place to tell you whom to vote for, to take any political stand, to tell you what religion to believe in. I'm an athlete. I can influence certain things, but when I see other athletes and celebrities telling you whom to vote for, I actually get a bit offended. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅It's not easy to retire at 31. In one respect I was glad I was done. But after a few years of having fun, I got a little restless. When you're 33, 34, and you don't have a focus, you can get kind of lost. As a man, you feel a little bit unfulfilled. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅I never wanted to be the great guy or the colorful guy or the interesting guy. I wanted to be the guy who won titles. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅It is nice to walk out on a court to have it packed. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅Where I fall down is my short game. I don't practice enough, and when I have to take a half swing from 50 yards out, that's trouble. /Pete Sampras

  • ⋅When I committed to playing a little tennis in some exhibitions, it was the best thing for me. It got me in shape. It got me out of the house. It got me doing something I love to do. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅It's not my place to tell you whom to vote for, to take any political stand, to tell you what religion to believe in. I'm an athlete. I can influence certain things, but when I see other athletes and celebrities telling you whom to vote for, I actually get a bit offended. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅I didn't have a big fat Greek wedding, but I have a lot of fat Greek friends. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅I made it look so easy on court all those years. No one realized how hard I had to work. No one realized how much I had to put into it. They underestimated my intensity. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅I let my racket do the talking. That's what I am all about, really. I just go out and win tennis matches. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅In tennis, you can make a couple of mistakes and still win. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅The way I look at the top five, (Rod) Laver, (Roger) Federer, myself, Borg and (Ivan) Lendl. I think those five guys dominated their generations better than anyone. Maybe Roger will dominate better than any one of the other four. Maybe I put Andre (Agassi) as kind of six through 10 with, you know, (John) McEnroe and (Jimmy) Connors, kind of those guys. That's kind of how I see it. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅I'm enjoying my retirement, enjoying my life. I have two kids and a lot of my time is spent chasing these two animals. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅Anybody who has played sports and says they have never choked is lying to you. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅My serve was there, everything was just clicking. Those are the days you dream about, especially in a final. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅Throughout my career, my mind rarely wandered, and I was never sidetracked by distractions, no matter what I was going through off the court. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅I'm not worried about the weekend, I'm worried about Saturday. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅After I went through two years of not winning an event, what kept me going was winning one more major. Once I won that last U.S. Open, I spent the next six months trying to figure out what was next. Slowly my passion for the sport just vanished. I had nothing left to prove. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅A champion is suppose to hate to lose, and it wasn't like I was ever crazy about the idea. But I learned to deal with losing without having my spirit or confidence broken, which would help immensely over time, not just in the big picture but even in specific matches when I found myself in a jam. Fear of losing is a terrible thing. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅Choking is being in a position to win, and then experiencing some critical failure of nerve or spirit. That never happened to me. And I can't help but think it was because I was never afraid to lose. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅By putting pressure on myself to develop a great game, I had less pressure to win. These days, I tell kids that the way I grew up, it wasn't about winning. It was about playing well, about playing the "right" way. That approach helped me enjoy the game and develop mine to its maximum potential. /Pete Sampras
  • ⋅Tennis is seen all around the world; if I am home or anywhere in the country, United States, people will stare. /Pete Sampras

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
