I highly doubt it. He is too involved with Federer and seems to
genuine trump his achievements when gets a chance. Do you remember the
shitty commercial he did long back where he called himself No.1 for 6
years. Also Lendl never bothered with exos with future champions.

Sampras also had a habit of belittling his opponents throughout his
career. He whined a lot when Muster took over from him as #1,

He is proud but has a lot of regrets, especially his poor record at
FO, that is gonna bite his legacy in the ass.

I think Pete is a lot like Lendl in his 'post-career' life.
He is proud of what he accomplished and is satisfied with his career.
While I am sure the loss to Bastile is not his favorite moment, I
cannot see (and have not heard anything indicating) bad moments
haunting him like McEnroe's loss in the '84 French Open.
