Hit For Haiti Gets Personal Between Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras

Chadley UekmanCorrespondent IMarch 13, 2010

The Hit for Haiti exhibition match at Indian Wells started out great with a well played women's doubles match.  The men's doubles match was a dream match between Andre Agassi. Rafael Nadal, Pete Sampras, and Roger Federer.

Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi got into a very uncomfortable confrontation halfway through the set, and the match was very tense the rest of the night. 

Agassi started teasing Sampras about not being loose and not having fun, so Sampras decided to have fun by imitating Agassi's walk.  Agassi then fired back at Sampras for being cheap because he tipped a parking valet attendant only one dollar at some point in the past. 

Sampras was visibly upset the rest of the night, and the match became very tense and turned a fun charity event into a catfight between two legends. 

Agassi and Sampras seem to still be bitter rivals, and definitely have some issues to work out. This is a far contrast between Federer and Nadal.  They were unforunately caught in the middle of Agassi and Sampras's fued, but handled themselves with true class during the event.

This is one of the most uncomfortable situations I have ever seen on live TV.
