Pete's first match is against Korda who's done very poorly in his previous Champions Cup appearances. Nice that they kept him away from the 2 best players(Courier, Martin) in this field. Wish I could be there May 5(when Sampras plays Mac)

Pete Sampras' first tournament match since winning the 2002 U.S. Open pits him against the man who knocked him out of the 1997 U.S. Open — Petr Korda. Sampras will make his Outback Champions Series debut at Champions Cup Boston on Thursday, May 3 when he takes on 1998 Australian Open winner Korda. The round-robin tournament is set for May 2-6 at Boston University’s Agganis Arena.

Featuring a field consisting of Sampras, John McEnroe, Jim Courier, Todd Martin, Mats Wilander, Pat Cash, Jimmy Arias and Korda, Champions Cup Boston is the second tournament of the 2007 Outback Champions Series.

In a match featuring a battle of two seven-time Grand Slam Champions, McEnroe will take on Wilander on Thursday, May 3. 2006.

Defending Champions Cup Boston champion Martin and former Wimbledon champion Cash will kick off play on Wednesday, May 2, followed by four-time Grand Slam winner Courier vs. Arias. The highly-anticipated match between Sampras and McEnroe will take place during the night session on Saturday May, 5.

Champions Cup Boston features an eight-man round-robin match format with the winner of each four-player group meeting in the championship match on Sunday, May 6 while second place finishers in each division meet in the third-place match. Competitors in Group A feature world No. 1 players Sampras, McEnroe and Mats Wilander along with Korda. Players in Group B consist of former world No. 1 Courier, former Wimbledon champion Cash, Martin and Arias.

Tickets start at just $15 and are available at (617) 931–2000 or www.ChampionsSeriesTennis.com.
