I agree. But it's not Pete's fault. He dealth with the hand he was
dealt.

That's why I say it's the wrong argument to point to the Hewitt
matches. Fed fans should point to
the "missing champion" generation.

If you're right about Sampras, then that's his problem legacy-wise for
not giving full effort and winning
more Slams. Maybe he thought no one could touch 14 but he was wrong.
If Fed goes past him, it's no
excuse saying Pete was half-arsed and should have won more.

Lendl said he woulda won 15 or more Slams if he had got his act
together earlier. And that's also meaningless.

It's just silly to compare Pete and Hewitt. They're two generations
apart. It's like
comparing Agassi and Lendl. Lendl won early on and, wow! newsflash!, a
couple years later when Lendl got a bit
older and Agassi hit peak AA won.

We have to as the generation 5 years younger than Sampras was so
monumentally poor - easily the worst in the open era.

Whisper insists in seeing Federer's 08/09 results as definitive - where
he's only lost at slams to a multi-slam winner 5 years younger than him.
Yes at the same stage of his career Sampras was losing at hardcourt slams
to the likes of Rafter and Kucera - and this according to Whisper somehow
makes Sampras better? Craziness.

Sampras is much better than Federer. Evidence is Pete only ever played
half-arsed as he knew he could get away with it. Why pull out the big
guns when he can coast on 1 break? Roger is the guy who has to play
100% to win as he clearly can't rely on big guns to overpower
opposition. He sure could use some power v Rafa right now instead of
rallying from the baseline for 99% of the match.

once is "begginers luck" LMFAO -- that's a new one. No doubt if they
had beaten samp twice in slam finals you would just say that twice is
"begginers luck," that sampras always got revenge and would have won
the third time.

No I wouldn't. I would then accept Sampras wasn't good enough to
prevent same guy beating him in 2 slam finals. The truth is when he had
motivation to get revenge it was lights out - that's supported by the
evidence over his 13 yr career & no coulda/woulda.

You've got to laugh. An aging Federer finds himself overtaken by a guy 5
years younger. Meanwhile Sampras gets beaten at his favourite slams by
comtemporaries Krajicek, Rafter, Korda etc. and this somehow makes him
better than Federer. Errr right...

You can laugh all you want (I suspect tears in reality) - Rafa is seen
as the better player by every objective analyst. Fedfuckers are really
hurting right now & frankly it's a pathetic sight watching grown men
behave like spoilt school girls with big crushes on Fed. My advice is
to get over it it's only a game. So what if he can't beat Rafa?

Every analyst alive sees Sampras as superior to all those guys you
mention above, because Sampras did not allow them to beat him multiple
times in slam finals as he knew what the legacy cost would be. The odd
loss here or there to guys who achieve fuck all detracts nothing from
his legacy. Had he lost 5 slam finals on 3 surfaces to Agassi he'd be
suffering like Roger is right now.

Sampras was so good he never even reached a French Open final. That's how
great he was.

Sampras never even reached slam finals on 3 surfaces - never mind winning
them.

Not a prerequisite for greatness as evidenced by the Wilander eg - only
male to ever reach multiple slam finals on grass, clay & HC yet is never
mentioned in goat stakes. Try again.

Because he only won 7 slams and was only number one for a few weeks.

In other words his overall record is lesser than Sampras' - same deal
with Federer.

No Federer's "overall record" is better than Sampras' - because Sampras
failed so badly to make any impression at the French Open - one of the
game's biggest events. That's a huge hole in his CV and is always
mentioned by analysts/commentators when discussing his legacy. If Nadal
wins say 10 or 11 slams and that includes a US Open - he'll be regarded
as the best ever because there will but no "buts".

Of course he won't. What do you base that on?

You Fedfuckers are getting more pathetic by the day. It's funny & very

Normal 'rules' didn't apply to Agassi the low point of his career was
mid 20's (most players peak) before winning more slams in his late 20/
s early 30's.
+ If he had done well enough that week to get to a masters series
final, then he can't have been playing that badly, no?

That doesn't explain why agassi played Rafa twice, losing both times
on a surface OTHER than clay...
At wimbledon and montreal on HC, only winning 1 out of 6 sets.

sure agassi was fried by wimby 2006 but was still playing well enough
in 05 to get to the final of the masters (where he lost to rafa.)

If Rafa loses to all manner of players at age 36, will that tell us
something about Rafa's absolute ability?

Please people, *think* before posting rubbish on this ng. If you follow
the logic carefully you'll soon realize most of your posts/ideas are
child-like & you have a ways to go before being capable of making valued
contributions. I'm not saying this to be abusive, but the logic quality
is non-existent in your recent posts - very embarrassing.

that's cuz Sampras played in a clown era - his greatest "rival",
Agassi, doesn't compare to Rafa.

Correct. Roger is the 'almost' man. Can't quite get the better of the
only other great player around in his era (Rafa). Sampras made a point
of beating his greatest rivals when it mattered most.

Except Safin, Hewitt, half the tour on clay, Yzaga, Kucera, Rafter etc.

er, he's beaten Hewitt/Safin in straights in slam semis. Try again - &
this time don't let the bitterness cloud your judgment & make you look

"Semis"?. Sampras got shown his arse 2 years running on his home court by
Safin then Hewitt - by your own standards these were the matches that
mattered.

Sure, but no way would Sampras ever allow Safin or Hewitt to beat him
more than once in a slam final. Once is beginner's luck & Sampras
always got revenge.

you are a fucking JOKE with your sampas ass licking so all i have to
say is ....

Federer 1 Sampras 0 at the World Championships.

The better man won at the most prestigious tournament.

H2H Federer swamps Sampras so his superiority is clear.
