    Just want to say what a pleasure it was to watch these 2 great players battle it out once more, albeit at an exhibition setting.
    Also want to point out that these 2 greats are still fantastic role models for the game of tennis, and the top pros of today will do well to emulate their behavior. Even though it was just an exo, you can tell both were competitive, but still respectful of each other. Their no-nonsense attitude and the professional way they conducted themselves was a reminder how great these 2 players were when they were top players on the tour.
    Not sure about the majority of you but I do occasionally get tired of the constant delays and gamesmanship that the top tennis pros resort to when things are not going their way. Not so with Pete and Andre; they thoroughly have been great champions and great role models for the pro tour and today's exhibition just reminded me of how well these 2 conducted themselves when competing at the highest level.

    I would also conduct myself very well if I was paid a million dollars and put up in a resort for a couple of hours of work.
