MatchSampras never even decided to show up. Must of been too embarrassed
When was the last time Sampras ever lost in a major when he was up 2 sets to none?
When was the last time Sampras ever lost when up 2 sets to none at Wimbledon and the U.S Open?
When was the last time Pete ever lost in U.S. Open Semifinal when serving for the match up 40 -15?
When was the last time Pete ever lost to the same player in 2 straight U.S Open semifinals when having double match point in both matches?
How about NEVER to all of the above.
Again, Federer was always great playing stiffs like Roddick and soft hitting Hewitt. Put Federer in against great players like Nadal and Djokovic and we see how over rated the guy really is.
Federer is a great player against dogshttt competition, but against great players we see his flaws come out. Namely he's a choker.
The facts are Federer never really beat a great player to win a major. He compiled 16 majors against soft competition.
The greatest player Federer ever dominated was Roddick. Not saying much is it.
Sampras, on the other hand won 14 majors against alltime great champions like Becker, Agassi, Edberg, Rafter, Courtier, Lendl.
That's why clearly Sampras is the greatest ever. And that's why Federer in my mind is the king of the dogshhht era. A great player, but weak mentally.
