Tennis legend Pete Sampras had all praises for Roger Federer when he expressed his views about the highly anticipated 2012 Men’s singles Wimbledon final. The final features World No. 3 Roger Federer and British No. 1 Andy Murray. Federer has an opportunity to equal Sampras’ record of seven Wimbledon titles – if he manages to beat Andy Murray on Sunday. On the other hand, Federer will also return to the Top, with a title win and consequently he would be able to equal Sampras’ record of 286 weeks as World No. 1. Federer is just one week shy from equaling this record.
While expressing his views, the legend asserted, “It’s easier to have my records broken by a guy who I admire and who I consider to be a friend. I’m used to Roger breaking my records, that’s the way it’s been for a number of years. There’s nothing I can do about it. I just sit here being impressed at what Roger’s been able to do.”
Sampras further added that “I know how hard it is to stay on top for many years. The fact that it’s Roger will make it a little bit easier for me to take. Roger’s done incredible things on and off the court and really deserves all the accolades of being a great champion.”
