As the years go by the accomplishments of Pete Sampras as an US tennis player become even more astonishing. During one of the most competitive eras of tennis he won thirteen grand slam titles. He won Wimbledon an incredible seven times, a record that is matched only by Roger Federer and it seems likely will never be beaten. On September 9, 1990, at nineteen years old he became the youngest male US Open Champion in the history of professional tennis. It is likely that there might never be another US player who achieves similar results.
Pete Sampras in his playing days
 
No US born player has come close in recent years to winning a Grand Slam title and there does not seem to be any on the horizon. Andy Roddick is the last US player to win a grand slam when he won the US Open in 2003 and that win was followed by many near misses but never another Grand Slam win. Pete Sampras seemed to always reach the finals and from 1990 to his retirement in 2002 he won at least one Grand Slam title with the exception of 1991, 1992 and 2001.
 
Pete Sampras spoiled US tennis observers with his consistent play throughout his career. This man won tennis tournaments so consistently that the tennis public took it for granted that he would win each year. It was not until he retired from the sport did observers take into account how difficult it is to consistently win tennis tournaments against the best players in the world.

Pete Sampras has been retired for almost twelve years and no US born male tennis player has been able to challenge his accomplishments as a professional. His presence at tennis tournaments as a presenter and the absence of US male tennis professionals as potential winners at Grand Slam tournaments over the years makes one realize that the feats he accomplished were exceptional and deserved even greater recognition. Great players should always be appreciated when witnessed because the feats they accomplish are likely never to be matched. Pete Sampras epitomizes greatness and achievements that US tennis fans might never again see an US male tennis player achieve.
