Pete Sampras took his children, Christian, 9, and Ryan, 7, to the Lakers game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (October 30). Mom and wife Bridgette Wilson wasn’t with them but the kids did bring a friend.
The former No. 1 tennis player recently played in the PowerShares series in Detroit. Other former pros like John McEnroe, Michael Chang, Ivan Lendl and Jim Courier are also participating.
Sampras, 41, said of the event, “It was a lot of fun, and I’d like to thank the Detroit fans for coming out. Your mind wants to get you to a shot, but your body sometimes can’t get there, so I’ve worked at getting into better shape. I enjoy being out here with Ivan and Jim. Ivan was a hero of mine growing up, so I enjoy this.”
The PowerShares Series will visit a total of 12 U.S. cities during its seven-week season.
