Wimbledon Memories: Roger Federer vs Pete Sampras

Wimbledon Memories: the 2001 only challenge between Roger Federer and Pete Sampras. For the third time in history, the tournament was canceled, but at the All England Club, we have lived unforgettable tennis moments and great records.

In the beginning, it was the two World Wars that marred the tournament, this year the global pandemic forced the Church Road board to cancel the event. Thanks to insurance taken out in 2003 against pandemics, however, Wimbledon will not suffer economic damage.

The 2001 match between Roger Federer and Pete Sampras was a real handover and the only challenge between the two. They faced off in the fourth round: Federer won with the final score of 7-6(7), 5-7, 6-4, 6-7(2), 7-5 after a great battle.

This year we should be content to relive the best moments, the best matches, the statistics, the curiosities and much other news about the Championships: but our mind goes already to 2021, with the hope of returning to live the emotions that only Wimbledon can guarantee.
