Pete Sampras (1971) retired American tennis player former World No. 1. During his 14-year tour career, he won 14 Grand Slam singles titles became recognized as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. Especially known for having the best "running forehand" of all time. He was able to catch attacks wide to his forehand using his speed hitting a forehand shot on the run.~ My favorite mens tennis player; loved his great game, gentlemanly style and his appropriate tennis whites.
