Sampras also won 7 leading indoor titles (5 ATP yearend World Championships and 2 Grand Slam Cups). He’s recognized as among the best tennis players ever. He was the yearend world no. 1 for six straight years (1993–1998), a record for the Open Age. Sampras is the last American man to win Wimbledon (2000) as well as the ATP World Tour Finals (1999).
In the US Open, Sampras was seeded 17th. Greg Rusedski, whom Sampras had conquered in an extended five-set third round match in the US Open, said that Sampras was “a measure and a half slower” and called that Sampras would lose his next match. Sampras, nevertheless, subsequently got the better of two young stars, Tommy Haas in the fourth round and Andy Roddick in the quarterfinals. Then he defeated Sjeng Schalken in the semifinals to reach his third straight US Open final, and eighth US Open final total, tying Ivan Lendl’s all time record. Now, he confronted Agassi, whom he’d met in his 1st Grand Slam final 12 years before. Following a four-set conflict involving both experts, Sampras claimed a then-record 14th Grand Slam singles title and matched Jimmy Connors’s record of five US Open singles titles. Sampras failed to compete in just about any tour events in the subsequent 12 months, however he failed to formally declare his retirement until August 2003, just before the US Open. He chose to not defend his title there, but his retirement statement was timed so he could say farewell in a particular ceremony organized for him at the Open. During the time of his retirement, many regarded Sampras as the best player ever.
