The context of Whisper's comment was not some random tune-up somewhere
in a match where Rafa was coming in
half dead. The context was a Wimbledon final or some other huge event
with both at full strength. It was clearly a comment meant to
denigrate Fed and Rafa, suggesting that they aren't even in the same
league as Pete was and that Sampras could play them like it was a
first-round opponent or something.

Whisper admits Pete came out guns-a-blazing against Agassi in their
matches because he knew he was up against a fellow all-time great and
couldn't afford to take anything for granted. It would be the same
thing against a Fed or Rafa. To suggest anything different is just
absurd, imo.

One thing is to say Pete was *half-arsed* in tune-ups, which could be
a question of semantics. Clearly he
didn't care nearly as much about a match at Indian Wells as he did at
the USO for example. But then again
we can surely say the same thing about Federer now as well, especially
after last year's match against Fish.

But Whisper goes completely overboard with comments even he doesn't
believe, like saying Pete would crush Rafa in straight sets *in half-
arsed mode.* Clearly this is just fanboy drivel.

I loved it when he said that Rafa would barely break Pete at FO.

Well if Federer can feed him a bagel in final of a tune-up, even on clay,
when Rafa s tired to tell the truth, if the same can do Nalbandian, or
Murray why do you think Whisper goes over the board when he says Sampras,
mind you, could simply beat Rafa in half-arsed manner in some tune-up?

Federer, Nalbandian and Murray can bagel him, and Sampras couldn't beat him
with "break per set" strategy?

No, they don't. For one, the Aussie Open is a lot more valuable now
than it was in the 70s. Your 7543 ignores this.

No, you have commented that Sampras did not care and would not try in
tune-ups. That belittles the Sampras' legacy and does not reflect
Pete's attitude to the fans...remember them? The fans that paid to
watch him.

Your position is not 'rock solid', it is childish and foolish.

Pay closer attention.

Of course, I know you are just a troll and rather lacking in tennis
knowledge. So nothing I or others say will teach you anything.

I can answer this nicely.
The answer is: Whisper.

You are such a troll and so poor in reasoning skills, not to mention
obnoxious, that you incite posters to argue against you.
Since your logic skills are so poor (and I, for one, doubt even your
knowledge of tennis) you make it easy for almost anyone to poke huge
holes in your arguments.

Since most of your poor reasoning is pro-Sampras, you incite people
against Pete. To me, that is your biggest crime against tennis.

Pete was, and is, a fabulous player and person. To me, and to many
others, he is the GOAT. But your continuing horseshit about 7543 and
'couldn't be arsed' drag on Pete's legacy (here, at least) and incite
others to rant against him.

Dave and others should not rant against Pete and his family.
Their complaints should rest with you, not with Pete.

Did that answer your question?

Sampras admitted, & it was obvious watching him play that he went for 1
break per set. He said he only knuckled down to get a 2nd break if he
happened to find his opponent down 0-30. This is what I & many call
'half-arsed' - ie not trying fully to win every point.

As the score suggests he's probably there with Sampras, top 100 level.

I think they were all equally arsed to pick up their paycheques after
the match. Federer/Sampras got some hoopla because dickheads like
you actually believed that it meant something.

A year later and Sampras 'losses' to McEnroe, Martin, Pioline, Haas
and Hewitt might switch the lights on for you if you had a few more
LEDs placed strategically in that thick cranium of yours.

This is trash talking, no analytical value whatsoever, you're just wasting

Ok, that makes more sense. Even that's a little too one-sided for an
exo but I have seen exos 6-4 4-6 6-4. I don't think Pete likes to
play 3 sets anymore so maybe that's why they go to a tie-break if they
split the two sets (on purpose, of course).

You're wasting your breath. Sampras did not compile the greatest record
in history due to cosmic fluke & Korda being inconsistent etc. He was
actually tipped from very young age to become one of the greatest
sportsmen the world has ever seen, not just dominate tennis. He
fulfilled that prophesy quite comfortably (half-arsed fashion, ignoring
tune-ups etc) winning an astonishing 7 Wimbledons & 6 years in a row at
No.1.

Fed talks about 'it all comes back to Sampras' etc - why you waste so
much energy excusing all he achieved is quite bizarre I must say.

So this is a good result for Hewitt?
Then you also must think Sampras is a genuine force, even today?

Which of course the oposite of what you probably think, ie that he wouldn't
fare well against Hewitt in their primes.

Don't fight with logic, please.

Weird scoreline. Didn't somebody read Hewitt the groundrules? These
things are supposed to have at least one tie-break, preferably 2.

Sort of like the time Becker whacked Connors in an exo and Connors
complained that Becker wasn't sticking to the formula of keeping it
close. That one was worse, 1 and 2 or something like that.

Maybe no love lost between these guys.

Er, that was prediction not the scoreline.
Scoreline was 7-5 6-4.

And if you think that's "good result" for Hewitt, then wow.

27 year-old tour pro beating a 37-year old, who's been retired for more than
6 years and with whom he supposedly has a match-up advantage?



If I were Hewitt I'd retire after a match like this.

Don't tell me you are serious again? Only surprise is there is no
tie-break. As someone said, 1 or 2 tie-breaks are usually in the
*skript.

There are no scripts in Sampras's exo.
He can still hold serve quite well so there is no need for fixing.

So if you say Sampras exos are serious, Hewitt beat Sampras much
easier than Federer, so surely Federer should have retired already?

You don't really think he was equally arsed playing Federer in Madison
Square Garden and Hewitt in Memphis?
Also remember he's one year older now, one year deeper into retirement.

That's a bizarre exo. Did Sampras want revenge for 2000 USO?
