Pete Sampras got off to a good start at the ATP World Championship in Hanover, Germany, unfortunately for Marcelo Rios, so did Tim Henman.
Sampras beat Russia's Yevgeny Kafelnikov, 6-2, 6-4, in his opening match, and Rios of Chile was upset, 7-5, 6-1, by the big-serving Henman of Britain.
Sampras leads Rios by only 33 points in the computer rankings and is seeking to become the first man to finish at No. 1 for six years in a row. He shares the record with Jimmy Connors.
