    I just heard Pete Sampras is playing on the seniors tour. At what age are you considered a senior? I hardly think of Pete as being a senior.

    i believe the tour has some requirements like being 35 or over....or having been a former world #1 or grand slam finalist ...etc

    so sampras on that tour makes 'some' sense...he's 35, been a former #1, won a 'few' slams.....

    marcelo rios does not deserve to be on that tour....he's like 31 and should be on the atp tour

    It's funny how young Rios came onto the tour and beat an aging Agassi, then went on to the Seniors tour while Agassi was still in the ATP.

    Leave Rios alone; the OP didn't ask about him.
