Tennis legends Pete Sampras + Andre Agassi renewed their historic rivalry for an exhibition match in Macao this past weekend.
And it seems they picked up where the left off: Pete defeated Andre 3-6, 6-3, 10-8. Their last pro match was the 2002 US Open final when Pete grabbed his then-record setting 14th major title over his great rival.
The Las Vegas natives ball-striking ability can still impress according to the 7-time Wimbledon champion:
Andre just hits the ball so cleanly, even after being retired for three years. The pace of his shots was very heavy.
Pete's legendary skills at the net haven't seemed to dull over the years, either:
Pete's hands are the same as they've always been. He has great feel for the ball. He surprised me with the number of pickups he made out there. It was like it just came very naturally.
Last year, Pete defeated Roger Federer in Macao during the last match of their Asian exo series.
