Pete Sampras: Greatness Revisited 

by Steve Flink

Pete Sampras is a central figure in the history of tennis, the dominant force in the game during the 1990’s, and the greatest American male player of all time. Gradually, after a fairytale finish to his career when he won the 2002 U.S. Open, Sampras was somewhat forgotten by fans who were exhilarated by the exploits of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. In this career biography of the redoubtable Sampras, Hall of Fame author and historian Steve Flink recaptures the magic of the man, recalling the supreme hold he had on his era, and bringing this singularly gifted player vividly back to life.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK — Foreword by Chris Evert

Whenever I think about Pete Sampras and how he shined as a tennis player, I remember that incredible combination of brute force and the amazing smoothness he always showed us.
