The beauty of the Pete Sampras era in tennis is that one does not remember when it began or when it ended.

One of the greatest players to ever grace the tennis scene, the seven-time Wimbledon champion has admitted that he is now "95 per cent" certain he has played his last professional match.

"Itís time for other guys to hold up the trophies," he says.
