Pete Sampras turned 28 Thursday, and after his two-set victory over Rainer Schuttler he said he had no grand plans to celebrate his birthday.

You tell me, what should I do in Cincinnati? Sampras asked the media. Go to the Waffle House, which I've been at?
He was serious. He's been there. Was he recognized?
Took them a while to figure it out, Sampras said. It's a great place.
His real plans this year: I'll have dinner, pretty low-key. I play tomorrow. (I) really can't go out and live it up.
Tournament chairman Paul Flory and J. Wayne Richmond, the tour's executive vice president of the Americas, presented Sampras with a birthday cake at his postmatch press conference.
