Re: Federer is a new Pete Sampras

Federer is a new Roger Federer.
Why must everyone try to equate someone to a past great. Every player is unique and their achievements are unique as well.

Re: Federer is a new Pete Sampras

sampras is sampras.....a great player......
federer is federer........a great player in many years to come hopefully......
so the answer to this question is no!!!!

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

Re: Federer is a new Pete Sampras

Didn't Safin imply in his post-match interview that Federer's got a better backhand than Sampras? Anyway as most people are saying, Sampras is Sampras and Federer is Federer.

Roddick, Safin, Hewitt are all very, very good on grass. Which is more than i can say about when Sampras was around.

Re: Federer is a new Pete Sampras

Don't like the New Sampras designation at all.

But I believe he can reach the position Sampras once stood in men's tennis.

Re: Federer is a new Pete Sampras

he has a ways to go.

If he absolutely dominates this year, then I will start to consider this proposition...

Re: Federer is a new Pete Sampras

I think it´s useless to compare a player who´s retired with a player who´s 22 year old unless we´re all fortune-tellers.
