The SAP Open in San Jose kicked off yesterday and Pete Sampras shook the dust off his Pro Staff to show the packed crowd what it kinda sorta looked like when he used to play, if he was slower, less flexible, less explosive, and wasn't as good. He was supposed to play Blah in the exo but Blah, ironically, had to pull out due to a sore back. So in stepped Tommy Haas.
What is this, 2002?
The night session was capped with Special K taking on the ever annoying Gilles Muller. Kei took him out in straight sets, 75 62.
