Hewitt is the only player to defeat Sampras [2000 Queens Final], Agassi [2002 San Jose Final] & Federer [2010 Halle Final]~~ in Finals(-:
>> between them Sampras, Agassi & Federer have won 38 Slams & 190 tournaments.. so for Hewitt to defeat all of them in finals is pretty cool<"">
...
Other slam winners that Hewitt has defeated in finals include: Kuerten, Moya, Ferrero.!

EDIT: Just checked and he never beat Sampras on grass.
Then I think he's the only one indeed.

Hewitt = grass GOAT.

Hewitt beat Sampras twice on grass.

He has also defeated Fed and Sampras three times each on HC.....I think he and Agassi are the only players ever to have accomplished that.

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,

It is the game you will win.

Hewitt is one of the best players this decade. Beating both of them and Agassi on grass is a great achievement.

The considerably cooler and more legendary Aussie Richard Fromberg beat Sampras at Queen's in 1990, and Federer at Nottingham in 2000 .

My bad, I was thinking of the Rafter vs Sampras rivalry for some reason :retard:

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Amazing stat, this would be a good trivia question
So the only 2 players to defeat Sampras & Federer on grass are Fromberg & Hewitt, 2 Aussies

Not quite as Kiefer has also beaten them both on grass. In fact he did so at the same tournament, at Halle in 2002. He beat Sampras in the 2nd round, and Federer in the semi-finals.

Fromberg is a huge legend.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Kuerten defetead Sampras in SF and Agassi in F at 2000 Master Cup. Only player ever to defeat Agassi and Sampras back-to-back, i believe.
But on HC.
