Pete Sampras

Californian tennis legend

Pete Sampras | NMP Live

Growing up in Palos Verdes, California, Pete Sampras started playing tennis at the age of 7 and grew up idolizing the play of the great Rod Laver. By age 11, Pete would have the chance to practice with his idol.

Under the tutelage of early coach Pete Fischer, Pete made a name for himself as an up-and-coming star while competing in the juniors against the likes of David Wheaton, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, and Michael Chang. Fischer would play an instrumental role in Pete's future success by switching his backhand from a two-handed to a one-handed, and by turning Pete Sampras into a serve-and-volleyer from a baseline player.

Pete joined the professional tour at the age of 16 in 1988, won his first pro tournament on February 12, 1990 at Philadelphia, and reached the No. 1 ranking for the first time in his career on April 12, 1993.

Pete Sampras has gone onto win more Grand Slam titles than any other men's player in tennis history, and held the year-end No.1 world ranking for a record six consecutive years (1993-1998).
