On Saturday, June 20th, the rivalry continues at The Greenbrier when Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras go head to head at the Grand Opening of Center Court at Creekside.
Tennis Hall-of-Famer and 14-time Grand Slam winner, Pete Sampras, made his debut at The Greenbrier in 2012 at the inaugural Greenbrier Champions Tennis Classic. Sampras returned again in 2013 and in 2014 to headline the Tennis Classic along with fellow Hall-of-Famer John McEnroe, Andy Roddick, Tommy Haas, Ivan Lendl and others. Sampras was named The Greenbrier’s first-ever Tennis Pro Emeritus in April of 2014.
“Pete Sampras is the consummate gentleman ambassador for the international sport of tennis, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him back to The Greenbrier and count him among our legendary group of sports pros representing America’s Resort,” says Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier.
Former world no. 1, Andre Agassi, has been referred to by many as one of the most dominant tennis players in the history of the game. Agassi and Sampras first met at a Grand Slam final in the 1990 US Open. The two went on to play each other a total of 34 times in a 12-year-span, with Sampras winning 20 of the matches. The Agassi-Sampras rivalry is widely known as one of the greatest face-offs of all time.
