Description
Legends of Wimbledon - Pete Sampras is a fascinating insight into the Wimbledon career of arguably the greatest Men's Champion of all-time.

This documentary follows the journey of the seven times winner from his inauspicious debut in 1989 to his record breaking victory in 2000 and his last match at The Championships in 2002.

Sampras won his first Wimbledon title in 1993 defeating Jim Courier in an all American final. There would only be one other champion in the next seven years. Challengers came and went as Sampras overcame every obstacle in front of him including the untimely death of his close friend and coach Tim Gullikson.

His Wimbledon career culminated in 2000 with his seventh singles title and thirteenth Grand Slam title when he overtook the record set by Roy Emerson thirty years previously.

The programme features contributions from many of Sampras's greatest rivals who themselves were great Wimbledob champions including Boris Becker, Andre Agassi and Goran Ivanisevic. The current champion Roger Federer and the 1996 champion Richard Krajicek recall their respective victories over Sampras with further contributions from Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Martina Hingis, Jim Courier, Tim Henman and Tom Gullikson, brother of Sampras's coach Tim.

Legends of Wimbledon - Pete Sampras is an enthralling insight into the career of a player regarded by many as the greatest champion of them all.
