without diversity no one can be considered goat from this era
laver played (and beat everyone) on carpet, wood super fast- super slow courts
don't be ludicrous. it's one thing to say that Pete could beat Federer or Nadal on fast courts but he wouldn't come close to bageling even Nadal. He might not even be able to beat Federer on ANY surface or speed. You underrate Roger extremely. Sampras did not have anywhere near the variety of Federer, was weaker off the baseline with his groundstrokes, did not have a penetrating slice, moved much worse.... Pete had a better serve than Federer but what beyond that?
you are exxagerating extremely and it makes it hard to respect what you say in general.
Federer is better than Sampras in almsot every facet. HOWEVER, definitely Sampras could demolish possibly Nadal on carpet or fast grass.
