Sampras vs. Federer at Madison Square Garden

The battle for tennis history was fought right here in New York City last night at Madison Square Garden between two of the best tennis players of all time. I captured an epic 3 set match for AYS Marketing that ended with Federer closing out an 8-6 tiebraker. Sampras was up 5-2 in the 3rd before Federer stepped it up before the 19,000 sold-out electric crowd. Celebrities filled the room from Donald Trump, to Tiger Woods to Regis Philbin. The arena was also filled with the greatest tennis players of all time - Ivan Lendl, John & Patrick MacEnroe, Stan Smith, Tony Trabert, Roy Emerson, and other tennis legends came out to show their support for this amazing event. The sport of tennis was the real winner of the night. Here are a few great shots and slideshow (below):
