Re: anyone seen this creepy Fed-Sampras Comparison

Nice find. It will be interesting to see how many Slams Fed wins in the next two years. He is going to have to win at least 4 in tht time to have any shot at getting to 14 and it seems unlikely that anyone will challenge that mark.

In any case, Fed from the 2003 TMC to right now has probably been the best player in the history of the game. 5 slams, 2 TMC (a chance for another one soon), 7 TMS titles (a chance for more soon), 156-9 overall. 156-9. That's just mindboggling.

Re: anyone seen this creepy Fed-Sampras Comparison

I sometimes tire of these comparisons... BUT I have to say, the similarities between the two as they are laid out in that chart are really striking!

It seems crazy, by the way, that Pete Sampras won his first major in 1990 playing Agassi in the final --- and Roger also just won his latest major playing Agassi in the final.

Last of the moon-and-volley specialists.

I believe in luck. How else can you explain the success of those you don't like? ---Jean Cocteau

Re: anyone seen this creepy Fed-Sampras Comparison

yeah, Fed doesn't use an nCode Six one or whatever. Paintjob!

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

If fed averages 1 GS a year from now on, he should at least tie Sampras' mark of 14, by the time he retires.

Re: anyone seen this creepy Fed-Sampras Comparison

i think fed can win at least 2 GS a year. that would mean that he can break the record in 5 years at 29
