Pete Sampras Quotes


16 Pete Sampras quotes:

"I am going to hold serve the majority of the time. It is nice to have a little time to return serve."
"I don't know how I do it, I really don't."
"In tennis, you can make a couple of mistakes and still win. Not in golf. I played three rounds in that Tahoe event, and I was drained. Mentally, not physically."
"It is nice to walk out on a court to have it packed."
"Tennis is seen all around the world; if I am home or anywhere in the country, United States, people will stare."
"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."
"You kind of live and die by the serve."
"There's always one shot that I can rely on when I'm not hitting the ball that well, is my serve."

"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."
"People know me. I'm not going to produce any cartwheels out there. I'm not going to belong on Comedy Central. I'll always be a tennis player, not a celebrity."
"(The tournament) was one of my more favorite stops and I know a lot of players love playing in the desert and it's good to see it's staying in the desert. Obviously playing the event for 14 or 15 years, I love the two weeks I would spend there. I have a home close to there and I can have a presence at the event now that I'm a very small piece to a big puzzle."
