Sampras vs. Courier ***PICTURES***

Amazing I bet that was a treat.

OT: Sampras needs to shave his head, that looks like he has a disease or something, hope that is not the case

sampras crushed courier, 6-1 6-4. it was courier who they expect to win because he has been playing more than sampras.

Anyone know what stencil is on Courier's racquets? I saw him at the Champions Cup in Boston a few months ago and he was using the same thing. Any ideas?

He looks like his father now.
BTW, I love his serve motion! Classic!
It's amazing how close he gets to the line w/o stepping on it.

Actually he just turned 35 on Aug. 12th. He should definitely shave his head, not Kojak bald, but at least trim it down, he'd look a lot younger.

Pete looks like he has mange, that hair is crazy. But he looks good with a little weight on him. I bet he's still smooth and can still crank the serve.

They need to get Chang and Agassi (on a day when he has a backache, to make it even) and have a round robin for old times sake.

great pics. good stuff. courier looks like he just woke up after a nite of binge drinking in that pic without his cap --- once he puts that cap on, looks like the courier of old.

Not really. He looks to be in pretty good shape.

And I don't think Sampras could pull off the shaven head look. He would be the butt of a lot of jokes involving Agassi. You either just live with the bald spot, or you get a toupee. And since he is in the public eye, a toupee will also place him at the butt of many jokes.

Looks like the only thing Pete has lost is some hair... he's carrying a spare tire around the mid-section, eh?
Not at all, he looks fit. Once a athlete, always an athlete.

This is from Wikipedia, may be he really has a disease:

Sampras admitted to not speaking about his condition with thalassemia minor, because that would have lessened his aura of invincibility against fellow players.

thalassemia minor does not affect hair loss as far as i know, i'm pretty sure he has male pattern balding, look at his dad.

Yeah man, it's probably male pattern baldness. Interesting, Zinedine Zidane also has thalassemia minor and he too is bald.
 
Thanks for the great pics, Mabuhay! You're lucky to have seen that!

Maybe Pete should grow a goatee, get an earring, and switch back to his two-handed backhand...copyright infringement??

Haha...so true. Polar opposites, even if he had a two inch by two inch patch of hair left he wouldn't shave it.
