    Sampras strung his racquets looser at the beginning of his career than in
    his prime — you can see how much easier his swings were, especially on the
    backhand side. We remember him for his serve and volley, but his
    groundstrokes were really beautiful, too.

    haha Lendl is so frustrated with the youthful Sampras

    Great to watch. You could see Lendl getting frustrated and thinking, who
    the heck is this guy?

    Un match d’importance : Lendl avait atteint 8 fois de suite la finale de
    l’US Open de 1982 à 1989. En le battant en 1/4, Sampras réalise l’exploit !
    Et il remporte le tournoi derrière !

    Lendl was great and starting on he decline, but still a top player. ItS
    like whats happening to Fed right now.

    I love being able to see this again. I don’t watch too many matches
    anymore. Too boring now. Thanks.
