Hewitt is the only player to defeat Sampras [2000 Queens Final], Agassi [2002 San Jose Final] & Federer [2010 Halle Final]~~ in Finals(-:
>> between them Sampras, Agassi & Federer have won 38 Slams & 190 tournaments.. so for Hewitt to defeat all of them in finals is pretty cool<"">
...
Other slam winners that Hewitt has defeated in finals include: Kuerten, Moya, Ferrero.!

I don't think so. From memory they played each other on grass once which Sampras won. :shrug:

EDIT: Just checked and he never beat Sampras on grass.

Then I think he's the only one indeed.

Hewitt = grass GOAT.

Hewitt beat Sampras twice on grass.

He has also defeated Fed and Sampras three times each on HC.....I think he and Agassi are the only players ever to have accomplished that.

Hewitt is one of the best players this decade. Beating both of them and Agassi on grass is a great achievement.

The considerably cooler and more legendary Aussie Richard Fromberg beat Sampras at Queen's in 1990, and Federer at Nottingham in 2000 :worship:.

Not quite as Kiefer has also beaten them both on grass. In fact he did so at the same tournament, at Halle in 2002. He beat Sampras in the 2nd round, and Federer in the semi-finals.

Kuerten defetead Sampras in SF and Agassi in F at 2000 Master Cup. Only player ever to defeat Agassi and Sampras back-to-back, i believe.
But on HC.

Chang also beat Agassi and Sampras back to back, at Toronto in 1990, when he knocked out Agassi in the quarter-finals and Sampras in the semis.

Also Edberg beat Agassi and Sampras back to back in the RR stage of the Master Cup in 1990.

However Agassi got his revenge by beating him in the final.

Sampras was pretty old during Lleyton's prime

Nadal beat Federer and Agassi (in straight sets at Wimbledon) on grass, and never played Sampras on grass.
