Despite a storied 15-year career that included 14 Grand Slam singles titles, tennis great Pete Sampras is facing one obstacle he cannot overcome: unloading his Thousand Oaks, California mansion. Sampras, who retired from the pro tennis circuit in 2003, has been trying to sell his gigantic mansion since March 2010 when he listed it for $25 million, reportsCurbed.
Sampras's mansion is impressive to say the least, though whether it's worth $19.95 million, which is the current list price, is up for debate. The custom-made estate comes with a variety of amazing features that would make any ordinary person green with envy. From the detached 2,000 square foot gym to the massive theater and game room to the separate poker room to the seven bedrooms and twelve bathrooms, there really isn't much this mcmansion doesn't have. There's even an infinity pool and the obligatory North/South tennis court where you can serve ace after ace just like Sampras himself (we can all dream, right?).
Who knows -- with Sampras's bad luck unloading his gated Lake Sherwood mansion, perhaps he'll even throw in a private tennis lesson at the home's custom-made tennis courts.
