Back in 1999, Pete Sampras appeared on "60 Minutes." Charlie Rose posed a somewhat leading question that could've made Sampras uncomfortable.
Instead, the tennis great just smiled.
"So when you read, 'he's boring,' you say," Rose prompted.
"I'm not," Sampras said. "I got my own jet. Hollywood girlfriend."
Twelve years later, most would still want to describe Sampras as boring, but they can't. Not when that Hollywood girlfriend is now his wife. They have two boys, Christian and Ryan, and they certainly bring their own brand of excitement.
"It's very different," Sampras said of being a father rather than a top-ranked pro. "They are at the age now that they understand what's going on. They're in school and doing all the homework and reading … You're just trying to help them any way you can. You want your kids to listen and behave and do what you say, but they do the opposite. They are boys. First thing in the morning they are up and ready to go. I'm just barely waking up. As a tennis player you only worry about you, but now I'm thinking about them. I enjoy it. It's a lot of fun."
