Indeed a great moment, thanks for the link.  I remember having to turn the tv off when Sampras was losing the 2nd set tie-breaker, I could not bear to watch.  I came back and checked the tv 30 minutes later onely to find out he had won the tb and was up a break in the 3rd set.  Good stuff.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Good Luck on the Court!!!

Are you familiar with MegaUpLoad?  Just put in the 3 digit code it tells you to in the top right hand corner, hit submit, it makes you wait 45 seconds, then hit download.  That is it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

One of the best doubles shots I have ever seen!  




Talk about keeping your head down and eyes on the ball!

Notice also how low he gets to hit the ball - I bet he'd been doing his lunges.....

Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

Yup, and some of those people will stick with those statements :whistle:  :whistle:  :whistle:

But I agree that those overheads are something else.  Really a shot of athletic wonder (see my comments in the "Evil Pete" thread).

Allison is stealing my job!  I want to be the one busting you for calling Pete's game boring when we have this great thread full of Youtube clips of Petey doing his thang!!   Truly sweetness!   :uh:
