Grand Slam Agassi/Sampras

Regular price $900.00
My art has been reproduced on golf towels for awhile and the company that makes them wanted to move into tennis towels. We talked about creating a line of great tennis rivalry artwork and this is my second one.
The Andre Agassi/Pete Sampras rivalry is considered one of the greatest tennis rivalries of all time. It's almost like the great boxing match-ups, they were perfect for each other. They played at the same time, starting in 1990. Sampras had this rocket serve and Agassi was known for his counter-punch, he's been called the best service returner in the game's history. It's that classic kind of Ali/Frazier thing, where they were just meant for each other.
In the image, Sampras is ready to serve, he's about to throw up the ball. And Agassi is hitting a baseline serve with a backhand. They are on opposite sides of a net, even though you can't see the net.
