Editorial Reviews

Pete Sampras was the king of Centre Court throughout the 1990s, and looked to continue his championship streak into the new millennium as he faced 12th seeded Australian Patrick Rafter in the 2000 Men's Final at Wimbledon. Sampras had a fairly easy trip through the tournament, losing only three sets in his matches on route to the final. Rafter, the two-time U.S. Open champion, was also doing well, only losing one set in his first five matches throughout the fortnight. Then he faced Andre Agassi in the semi-finals in a five-set thriller, with the victory earning Rafter his first appearance in the Wimbledon final and his first match against Sampras on a grass court.

The day would start with rain delaying the match by an hour, giving Rafter a bit more of a rest after his match with Agassi. In the first set, which had two additional rain delays, Rafter showed that he was not awed by the occasion or the opponent as he won a tough first set that went to a tiebreak. Sampras evened things up, winning the second set, which also needed a tiebreak. It looked to be anybody's game, until Sampras went ahead 3-2, getting break point in the third set, and eventually winning the set. It would be tough for Rafter to come back, knowing that Sampras had never lost a five set match at Wimbledon.

But the day would belong to Pete Sampras, as he won the fourth set in the gathering darkness of Centre Court to win the match and re-write the record books. His win over Patrick Rafter, 6-7 (10-12), 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 6-2 was his seventh Wimbledon title (and his fourth consecutive championship), and a record-breaking 13th Grand Slam title.

As a huge Rafter fan, I taped this match off NBC-TV that day and have since transferred it to DVD. I will appreciate the near-HD quality of this Kultur production. (I own 5 other Classic Wimbledon (Kultur) matches)

Two of the greatest, all-courters go at it here. The athleticism, quickness and precision volleying of Rafter-Sampras are abilities rarely seen in today's professional tennis. Except for R.Federer, of course.

The swashbuckling Rafter has Sampras on the ropes ahead 4-2 in the 2nd set tiebreaker when Patrick later admitted that he "chokes" the only time in his Hall of Fame career. Sampras senses it and goes on to roll him after that critical moment.

4 stars because this is a good, solid final; not one of the greatest matches ever, not even close.

Pete Sampras broke the record for Grand Slam titles in this 4 set war with the Aussie Pat Rafter in 2000. Pistol Pete was playing with a shin injury and his philosophy in this match,where his win gave him 7 Wimbledon crowns, was to win at all costs. Definitely one of the more memorable matches of his 16 year career on the WTA tour.

Glad to see this DVD is on the market. I tried to buy it last year but no copies were available. This year it came in time for Christmas. We have enjoyed the coverage. It is all about the tennis without much fluff. It is also great to hear the match with european announcers. They did a great job.
