Pete Sampras Net Worth: Pete Sampras is an American retired tennis player who has a net worth of $150 million dollars. Pete Sampras was born August 12, 1971 in Potomac, Maryland. A former world No. 1 player, Sampras had an impressive 14-year tour career and won 14 Grand Slam singles titles, becoming the first player to break Roy Emerson's record of 12 Slams. Sampras also won 7 major indoor titles (5 ATP year-end World Championships and 2 Grand Slam Cups). He is recognized as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. He was a five-time U.S. Open champion and a seven-time Wimbledon champion, and dominated the sport for most of the '90s. Early in his formation he worked with Peter Fischer, an amateur coach and pediatrician, and Sampras soon soared to the upper echelon of the American junior circuit. At the age of 14, Sampras and Fischer radically altered his game. Scraping his familiar baseline play, Sampras, who idolized Rod Laver, moved to become a serve-and-volley player. The approach proved frustrating initially, but ultimately helped him dominate Grand Slam tournaments such as Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. Sampras displayed exceptional athletic ability at an early age and turned professional when he was only 16. For six straight years (1993-98) Sampras was named the ATP Player of the Year. In 2002, he capped his career with a 14th Grand Slam victory when he defeated Agassi in the final of the U.S. Open. At age 31, he was the oldest Open champion since 1970. Deciding to go out on top, Sampras made the tournament the last official tennis match of his career.
