Pete Sampras's tennis trophies stolen from storage in LA

SAN JUAN (PUERTO RICO), 22/05/2010 .- US former tennis player Pete Sampras gestures during a friendly match against his countryman Andre Agassi played at San Juan, Puerto Rico on 22 May 2010. Sampras wom 6-3, 3-6 and 6-4.


Pete Sampras has had most of his trophies and other memorabilia stolen from a storage facility, he said.

He discovered the theft three weeks ago and recently made the news public with the hopes of recovering his possessions.

"For me to have it for my kids is priceless,” Sampras told the Los Angeles Times. “I just hope it hasn't already been destroyed. That's why I wanted to get the word out now. I know this is a long shot, but I'd regret it if I didn't at least try. Maybe somebody knows something. That's all I can hope for."

Among the priceless items taken were two Davis Cup trophies, six world No1 awards, silverware from winning 64 tour titles, and an Olympic ring. He still has trophies from 13 of his 14 Grand Slam titles - including seven Wimbledons. But his first Australian Open cup had gone.

Sampras had placed the boxes of memorabilia in storage as he and his family moved between homes in Southern California, and never considered that the items would be taken.

"I was like, 'What?'" he said. "I thought there were security cameras. I thought these things were locked up tight. I was shocked."

"Losing this stuff is like having the history of my tennis life taken away,” he said.

Tis is really sad. But I still can't understand why the hell he kept all his trophies in the storage???? Unbelievable!
