Wow, I guess SAmpras can't get enought of these exhibitions. You know the money must be great. If Sampras can hang with Federer as he showed, I think he can take Marat.
Pete Sampras will face former world No. 1 player Marat Safin in an exhibition during the SAP Open on Feb. 18.
"Safin was granted a wild-card entry into the tournament Thursday. He will start his week by playing the exhibition against Sampras in a rematch of the 2000 U.S. Open final won by Safin in straight sets. Safin has won four of his seven career matches against Sampras.
Sampras, who retired after winning his record 14th major singles title at the 2002 U.S. Open, spent the past two summers playing in World Team Tennis events and participated on a limited basis this year on the senior circuit formed by former rival Jim Courier."
