Default Tennis legends shine in Philadelphia (with video)

It seemed like old times in Philadelphia when Pete Sampras, who collected his first professional win across the street in what you used to be The Spectrum squared off against Andre Agassi for the Champions Series title in Philadelphia.

In order to learn who he would be playing, Agassi had to wait for the second match between longtime rival Pete Sampras and icon Jimmy Connors. Once again hard play and good natured ribbing were on the agenda. Trailing 3-1 Connors staged another comeback and drew to within 5-4 before Sampras closed out the set to earn his spot in the finals.
