  Pete Sampras dropped the first set to Patrick Rafter but fought back for his seventh Wimbledon title. AP

Lucky No. 13

Sampras beats Rafter for record-setting win

With rain hampering play early on Sunday, Pete Sampras' chances of winning his record 13th Grand Slam title and tying Willie Renshaw's century-old mark of seven Wimbledon championships looked bleak, especially after Patrick Rafter took the first set 7-6 (12-10). But Sampras fought back, winning the next three sets for the historic victory. The victory completed an American sweep, after Venus Williams won the women's title on Saturday over Lindsay Davenport. But it also added fuel for argument about where Sampras stands among the all-time greats.
