How much is Pete Sampras Worth? by Kenyans247(1): Sun 13, December, 2020 09:26am
Pete Sampras Net Worth:
$150 Million

Pete Sampras Net Worth and Career Earnings: Pete Sampras is a retired American tennis player who has a net worth of $150 million. His career spanned many years, and he became one of the most successful tennis players of all time. He finished his career with a number one world ranking and 14 Grand Slam singles titles to his name. Sampras was nicknamed "Pistol Pete" due to his precise and powerful one-handed backhand. In 2007, Sampras was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Early Life: Petros Sampras was born on August 12th of 1971 in Washington, D.C. Raised by Greek parents in a Greek Orthodox household, Sampras first started playing tennis when he found a racket lying around in his basement at the age of three. He immediately spent hours hitting a tennis ball against a wall. After moving with his family to California, Pete began to train throughout the year. Between the age of 7 and 11, Sampras' potential was quickly noticed.

As a teen, Sampras trained with coach Robert Lansdorp, developing the forehand technique that he would use throughout the rest of his career. He then started training with Dr. Peter Fischer, a pediatrician and a tennis enthusiast. Fischer helped Sampras develop his trademark single-handed backhand.

Career: In 1988, Pete Sampras was ready to go professional at the age of 16. Within a year, he had moved up from 893 in the world rankings to 97. That year, he defeated several top-ranked tennis players. Just one year later, Sampras won a Grand Slam singles title at the French Open. At the age of 19, Pete followed up with his first major title at the US Open. He defeated Andre Agassi to become the youngest ever single champion to accomplish the feat.

In 1991, he won his first career titles at the Tennis Masters Cup. He would win four more throughout his career. He then drew criticism by suggesting that he was "relieved" after losing at the quarterfinals of the US Open that year. The following year, he won the Davis Cup with John McEnroe in the US doubles team. By 1993, Pete Sampras had achieved the number-one world ranking for the first time in his career. Some observers lamented this fact, given the fact that it had been a few years since Sampras had won a Grand Slam title. He silenced these critics by winning his first title at Wimbledon three months after gaining the top spot. Sampras then followed up with a win at the US Open.
