History Re-pete-ing Itself: Another Comeback in the Works?

First Martina Hingis, now Pete Sampras?

Don't get all excited, but there's certainly a pattern here worth mentioning.

Hingis competed in World Team Tennis, then took part in a couple of exhibition matches to 'see how she felt' before committing to her comeback in the fall of 2005.

Now Sampras - who like Hings, retired in 2002 - has already made quick work of the WTT, is exploring a stint with the Champions Tour.

I won't jump to conclusions too fast here...but the daily grind on the golf course just hasn't satisfied those ingrained competitive urges that Sampras has lived with for 30 years of his life.

Just a little food for thought.
