mishit: sampras and federer doll up for their exos

Here’s Pistol Pete and Darth Federer before squaring off at the Super Match VI in Seoul. I love it when a man isn’t afraid to wear fuschia!

Roger, having survived a scare at the TMC Shanghai, is now relaxed and looking forward to breaking more records (and perhaps nabbing gold at the Beijing Olympics) in 2008.

Scoreline: Federer was understandably nervous going up against his idol — and Pete put up a fight — but Roger got over it and won 6-4, 6-3. (A write-up of the match appears here.)

On the boob tube: Tennis Channel (I miss you, “The“!!) will air the Seoul exo on time delay at 7pm ET tonight. The broadcast will also appear on Tennis Channel’s website on Dec. 5.

The parade continues: The two will also play in Kuala Lumpur and at The Venetian in Macao.
