 RICHARD KRAJICEK PUTS THE RACQUETS IN THE BAG
Few players could consistently beat former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek on grass, but in the end a nagging elbow injury proved to be the unbeatable foe as the Dutchman called it a career this week at the ATP grasscourt stop in 's-Hertogenbosch, just days before the start of The Championships at the All-England Club.
With Krajicek now retired, Sampras pseudo-retired, Goran Ivanisevic and Todd Martin on the verge, and Wimbledon officials making the grasscourt surface resemble the US Open, the Dutchman sees the end of an era for serve and volley tennis.
With a game that could produce winning results on any surface, Krajicek was a sure bet to challenge Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras for the No. 1 spot throughout the 1990s, were it not for the slew of injuries and the frustration of the stop-start play that prevented any real career momentum.

For the four-time champion Sampras, it was a sweet 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-4, 6-2 defeat Wednesday of Richard Krajicek, who had the best record against him of any active player and was the only man to beat him at Wimbledon in the past eight years.
The 6-foot-5 Krajicek, who beat Sampras en route to winning Wimbledon in 1996 and had held a 6-3 record against him, sought to impose his big serve on Sampras once again.
When he saved number four with an approach shot that Krajicek netted, and followed it up with a service winner and a sizzling return winner to close out the set, Sampras delivered an uppercut to the air that might as well have been straight to Krajicek's jaw.

 Washingtonpost.com: Krajicek Has Disparaging Words for Defending Champ
On a day jam-packed with tennis (and only briefly delayed by rain), Sampras and Krajicek both won their third-round matches and marched another step toward what could be an intriguing men's final between the world's No. 1 player and the only man who regularly gets the best of him.
Krajicek, the No. 9 seed, completed his third-round match with Germany's Nicolas Kiefer with a straight-set victory, and Sampras capped off a 6-3, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-3) victory over Thomas Enqvist, as Wimbledon finally finished up third-round play and started the fourth.
None of Krajicek's comments can be considered anything but accurate, but after winning 10 Grand Slams and finishing five straight years as the No. 1 player, Sampras is not used to hearing others do anything but praise him.
