The American tennis legend, who won 14 Grand Slam titles and had his reign at Wimbledon interrupted by Roger Federer in 2001, recalled their only meeting at Wimbledon, which the then young Swiss tennis player won at the age of just 19.

“I don’t know where to start, so I’ll start from the beginning,” Sampras initially said, addressing the 20-time Grand Slam champion in the first person, adding: “When we first met, you were only 19, you were a promising player, but we were already talking a lot about you. We had a great battle on center court at Wimbledon and you won in five sets. I remember leaving the field with the feeling that I played my game.”

It is worth noting that Pete Sampras had won the previous four finals in the British Grand Slam, reaching seven trophies in the top tournaments!

Sampras then went on to win the US Open in 2002 before retiring, and over the next two decades, Federer’s career soared.

“I didn’t know that twenty years later you would have won twenty Majors, that you would have been No. 1 for years, that you would have dominated our sport and in fact, that you would have done it all. We’re going to miss you,” Sampras noted, calling Federer “a really special player.”
