Sampras Sees Today’s Youngsters Are Different

Sampras Sees Today’s Youngsters Are Different

Some dads want to make sure that their children would practice tennis all day long. In Los Angeles, a young Pete Sampras spent hours hitting balls against the wall. His parents, Sammy and Georgia, found out that Pete and his brother and sister could play at the famous Jack Kramer Club. Pete practiced every day, every moment. But the new kids are another story all together.
“I didn’t have much of a normal childhood, socially. I was only focused on tennis,” Sampras told on the Vancouver Sun. “There’s part of me that doesn’t want that for my kids [two children]. I want them to be passionate about whatever they chose to do. But I’m not sure the sacrifices needed to make it tennis are their cup of tea. Technology certainly has slowed down certain generations. My wife [Bridgette Wilson] and I are like a lot of parents, trying to get our kids off computers and iPads. I didn’t have those distractions growing up. It’s a battle to get them outside to play.
