    This happens in a lot of all time player vs. current player threads, everyo ne either forgets or didn't see the all time guy. Many of you forget how unbelievable Sampras was. All I can say is this would be an interesting match to watch, I think Sampras would ultimately win, but I think it would be a close one. Sampras' ability to get all over the court and his great first serve would decide it.

        Nadal is the closest thing that there is to a rival to Federer, but the fact is that Nadal is only great on clay. That's Federer's main weakness as well, and I don't recall but wasn't Sampras pretty good on the clay courts? Sampras had Agassi in his second tenure of greatness and Chang. Andy Roddick couldn't hold Federer's jock as of right now, he has to actually beat him first.
        Is that a rash?



        Give JKPIGSKIN credit for this masterpiece

          I'd say Sampras as of now. Federer will probably surpass him later on though.

            I think that James Blake also has the opportunity to challenge Federer, when Blake is on, he is simply unbelievable.

              I know Sampras was widely celebrated for his powerful first serve... but bak then 120's was incredibly fast. Now with guys like Roddick, serving speed has gone another level. This would also be interesting in that Fed and Sampras played in two different eras in terms of the style in which tennis was played. For example, Sampras was known for coming to the net (or his air shots) while Fed is more of a dominant baseline player.

              Projected win total: 55+

                Sampras wasn't only great at net, he could also run all over the baseline, returning everything.

                      Federer will be the greatest of all time when his career is over.

                      People also forget Sampras was terrible on clay too, at least compared to other surfaces. Doesnt matter where they faced, federer would win.

                        "For me, he's the most complete player I've seen," said Richard Krajicek, the Dutchman who won here in 1996. "He reminds me of Pete Sampras, with a better backhand. With Sampras, I always had the feeling his backhand could fall apart."

                        Boris Becker, who won here in 1985, 1986 and 1989, said: "He doesn't really have a weakness. He's comfortable from the back of the court, he's comfortable at the net. And I think the other players have to learn from that."

                        John McEnroe, who won here in 1981, 1983 and 1984, said: "People think I'm kidding or that I'm just talking him up when I say he's the greatest talent of all time, but I believe that

                        Björn Borg, retired from professional tennis at 25 years and 4 months old and had already won 61 ATP events. Among those wins are 6 Major Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon on grass, 5 of them consecutive and 6 titles at Roland Garros on clay, 4 of those titles were consecutive, which is unanimously considered as the hardest surface to win in any Grand Slam!

                        Borg is the only player to have won in three consecutive years both Wimbledon and the French Open. An accomplishment considered by many experts as "the most difficult double in tennis". Besides that superb feat, Borg seriously handicapped his record because, unlike most top players of the last 25 years, Borg chose not to make the journey to the Australian Open, except only once in 1974 at 18 years old!
