NEWPORT BEACH — The first serve John McEnroe hit was an ace Thursday night. McEnroe, now 51, appeared humble in the World Team Tennis match at The Tennis Club Newport Beach. "It's the first [ace] I've got in 30 years," he said. It was early; the humility could only last so long. Ten minutes later in the men's doubles set, he was back to the fiery personality, yelling at a lineswoman after a call didn't go his way and putting his hands on his hips in that trademark pouty attitude the 17-time Grand Slam winner made famous.

Save the date if you want to see Maria Sharapova in action. The Russian beauty is going to make a lot of racquet on July 22 at Newport Beach Country Club. Sharapova’s only scheduled appearance for the Newport Beach Breakers comes in their regular-season finale. The Breakers play host to the Kansas City Explorers that day.

NEWPORT BEACH — Twenty-four years had passed since tennis legend Pete Sampras won a big tournament at The Tennis Club Newport Beach. The club was called the Balboa Bay Club Racquet Club in 1987, when Sampras, a 15-year-old kid, captured the CIF Individuals singles title as a student at Palos Verdes High. Sampras returned Saturday night for the Newport Beach Breakers as one of the greatest players in tennis history. "Someone said I won some event here," Sampras, the 14-time Grand Slam champion, said in a pre-match press conference.

Pete Sampras seemingly has little in common with Dirk Nowitzki. But at about the time Sampras began carving out a legacy as one of the greatest tennis players of all time in the early 1990s, Nowitzki was winning junior tennis tournaments in his native Germany. Nowitzki eventually switched to basketball and won his first NBA title Sunday night with the Dallas Mavericks. Sampras, a Los Angeles resident who can often be seen at Staples Center watching the Lakers, said he appreciated something else about the way Nowitzki finally won his ring.
