Pete Sampras Tennis is a tennis game for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Game Gear. During development, before Pete Sampras was signed to become the face of the game, it was known as Tennis All-Stars.[6]

The Mega Drive version of Pete Sampras Tennis was the first game published by Codemasters to utilise their J-Cart design (and the only J-Cart game to be released in North America), allowing for four-player support without the need for extra adapters. In Europe, non-J-Cart versions were also sold for a lower price.

The game was followed by Sampras Tennis 96.
