Pistol Pete has scored another ace with the sale of his Brentwood home.

Retired tennis legend Pete Sampras unloaded the property for $7.25 million — $1.65 million more than what he paid for it in 2009 — to Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, Variety reported.

Still, the 6,900-square-foot residence went for well below Sampras’ initial ask of $8.9 million, as The Real Deal reported in July.

Sitting at the end of a cul-de-sac, the home is nestled among trees and has six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and an open floor plan. In the backyard, there’s a dining terrace with a grilling station, a swimming pool and a fireplace.
