Would he have to have a comlplete meltdown not to break Sampras' record?

It is somewhat ironic that if Nadal plays well, Federer has a better chance of breaking this record.

Sampras had been heard saying that 14 GS was his biggest record. Some point last year he said that 286weeks was actually his best record. Lately, I believe he has changed to saying that having a winning H2H over his biggest rivals is his absolute biggest record ..... ;)

This one is not that meaningful, Roger has also been number 1 in the world for 6 consecutive years, just not at end November one year, so what ? 286 weeks is maybe PS biggest record. Roger will push it beyond 300 IMO.

While SetSampras is undoubtedly a monumental tool, no need to bash Pete for it. He's been vary gracious about the record thing. After the loss of Wimbledon final, he said he has no doubt Fed will win more than 14 slams, as just one example.

Agree, Pete's been very graceful, given that he has set huge records thanks to big sacrifices and intense focus on his career. These records could have stand 30+ years, and 8 years into retirement he's on the verge of losing almost all his records because of... the GOAT. Not lucky on this one.

It's unfortunate that an internet message board poster can make a player look bad.

Maybe people are referring to the comments Sampras made before the exho against Safin last year? :scratch:
