Yup I was there again at Stadium Malawati – yesterday, this time for the Clash of Times match between Roger Federer and Pete Sampras. I came in late and the match has just started.
The stadium is packed. I would say about 95% occupied.
The crowd was amazing. Pete Sampras was amazing and FUNNY too. I had a jolly good time. Roger Federer seems abit lost at times, not as sharp as usually. Of course this is just an exhibition match. I would expect this match result to be almost same as the one in Seoul but wohoooo! We got even better… 2 sets both with tie breakers. That’s good enough.
Pete, you can still kick-ass you know.
The final result is Roger Federer to Pete Sampras, 7-6,7-6.
Going round the court.
Good friends walk together eh.
Overall, I enjoyed this match between Roger Federer vs Pete Sampras more than Rafael Nadal vs Richard Gasquet match. I’m really glad that I have the chance to watch 4 of them play LIVE.
My next goal is to go watch a tennis grand slam. Australia is near… very near. Hehehe. That would be so cool eh.
i had juz finished watching d match live too…. (from ntv7)
i think sampras is too funny for me… i wonder y he had d habit of throwing one of d ball away…..
yea, they’re very good crowd pleasers as well as accomplished sportsmen. very good sports! they played to entertain. n with that kinda crowds, who wouldn’t be affected?! 🙂
yeeehaa yup, it’s juz great, the game was full of excitement and anticipation, i watched it full last nite….but in front of tv..hahaha, well, obviously Federer plays more consistant tennis (cos he is fitter), but his style is totally the opposite with Sam, he plays defensively and hit winners on counter attack, while Sam goes to the net all the time to press his opponents. It’s really a great match, glad to c Sam back..but…too bad Macau is going to be his last ever stop.. :(…..
OH YOU LUCKY DEVIL!!! Luckily Astro SuperSports and NTV7 had both games shown LIVE, if not I would be sulking at home. How did you manage to get the tickets???? Not one, but BOTH games???
me no like tennis.
but if liverpool first team come to play, i will surely go watch. haha.
Watching the Grand Slams is definitely the best thing and climax for a tennis fan 😉
Very exciting match, I truly enjoyed it :applause:

Pacco, hmm maybe that’s his trademark. I’m not too sure.
Dreamcatcher, and that’s why I said this match is better than Clash of Titans.
Michael Wong, hello and welcome. Oh yes both played so differently. A great watch.
Razzy, I book the ticket very early on. News on the ticket sales were advertised in the paper.
