Sampras the Sap

Pete Sampras dominated the world of tennis for over a decade with relentless tennis. He still holds the record for most Grand Slam titles at 14, and his over 250 weeks at number one and 64 singles victories put him in the mix as one of the GOAT - Greatest of All Time.

But Sampras showed us a softer side last week at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Newport, R.I. This tear-jerking first part of his speech will make any non-tennis fans turn their head, and also make those of you who were anti-Sampras think again about your disdain for the King of Swing.
