Sampras and Federer to play Wimbledon
A couple of the answers in Federer's word association (favourite tournament and dream doubles player) got me thinking.
And so I'm going to make another prediction: Sampras and Federer will play doubles at Wimbledon.
It's unlikely to be this year - Roger won't want anything to disrupt his plans to win a record sixth consecutive title - and in fact it may not be for another four or five years.
But given the mutual respect and the fun they've had over the past year in the exhibitions I think they'd both get a lot out of doubles. And it would give both them a chance to add another Slam to their records.
You heard it here first!!
