  • Agassi will watch his mouth in new Sampras exhibition

    2/28/11 2:41 PM | Johan Lindahl
    Agassi will watch his mouth in new Sampras exhibition Andre Agassi has vowed to be on best behaviour when he and longtime rival Pete Sampras meet in a charity exhibition at Madison Square Garden prior tothe start of the North American spring hardcourt ATP season.

    The occasion, the BNP Paribas Showdown, is designed to raise funds for youth tennis as well as Agassi's Las Vegas education charity.

    The date falls almost a year after the pair of old stagers went after each other at the Hit for Haiti exho at Indian Wells last March. On court and wearing head mics and playing with the well-mannered pair of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, the Americans let rip at each other through evil jokes and outright insults - most of them coming from Agassi, the one-time bad-boy of the game.

    "Our relationship is strictly platonic," Agassi joked in the run-up to the event. "As much time as we spent together, I never really knew him. Two different people, two different styles. Those differences were never bridged between us. But I recognize him as a superior athlete."

    Agassi now says he's put the childish games behind and will be all business at the New York showdown. He added that he had apolosied to Sampras after last March. "I brought it about myself. I had a mic in my hand way too long," he said. "I've since apologized. We've looked at life differently over the years. Hopefully, we'll get to know each other better going forward."
