He's 39 years old, 5 years older than the oldest player in the draw, Rainer Schuettler. With a nice draw (e.g. someone ranked 90 odd), he might win a round.

Well we all saw him take Federer down in that exhibition not that long ago....so on a given day he could beat any of these players. But he couldn't win....too many sets and matches for an old man in today's tennis.

Exhos are the benchmark these days.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

maybe... but don't forget that the USO is (1) best of 5 sets (2) 2 weeks 7 matches affair.... sampras probably will win couple of matches in the early rounds assuming he doesn't meet a top 10 opponent...

He would have had a reasonable chance (say 10%) to win New Haven this week, but US Open no chance.

Better than most people think, but we'll never know.

With a favourable draw the third round or even the fourth would have been possible.
