Sampras, Agassi Feud at Hit for Haiti

Over on Fanhouse, Greg Couch reports that Tennis “tried to show that it had a heart Friday night, that it’s not all about self-absorbed, entitled athletes, as its image often says.” But while the sold out crowd of 16,000 for the Hit for Haiti event helped raised more than $1M, the charity event was marred by two of its biggest stars.

Couch points out “a quarter of a million people dead in Haiti, and Sampras and Agassi took a charity event to raise money for earthquake victims and turned it into a night about themselves and their stupid bickering over Agassi calling Sampras a bad tipper.”

Sampras and Agassi “humiliated themselves, humiliated tennis.” Couch captures the exchange on Fanhouse.com.
