'We can do this tomorrow'
For Pete Sampras, it was about so much more than tennis. Sampras played the 1995 Australian Open quarterfinals burdened by his coach Tim Gullikson's diagnosis of brain cancer. Gullikson was given mere months to live. Emotion poured from Sampras after the fourth set, when he began weeping at the thought of Gullikson lying in a hospital bed. In the fifth, opponent Jim Courier noticed what was going on and memorably said, "You OK, Pete? We can do this tomorrow, you know." That remark spurred Sampras. He ultimately won 6-7 (4), 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 and lost to Andre Agassi in the finals.
