WAINAO N°22 - WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN HERE..
WHY NOW? BECAUSE PEOPLE FORGET HOW GREAT WAS PETE SAMPRAS. HE DIDN'T WIN AS MUCH AS ROGER FEDERER...BUT ROGER DID NOT FACE AGASSI, BECKER, KUERTEN, EDBERG, COURIER... IN THEIR PRIME. You can only beat the players you have to face so it's not a knock on Roger, who's amazing but very often we can be prisoner of the moment, dismissing all players of the past.
Pete was the king of wimbledon and we truly thought we would never see better than him or that it would take a century. Then this lil kid from switzerland come and beat him like a symbol..life is a circle...in tennis too.
