Federer is way cooler x10.

Never saw any attraction to Shampras.

Fed likes classy watches too, big time brownie points :worship:

Anyone whom wears an analogue watch is a uncool in my book!

Sampras was able to get an actual attractive woman with his coolness.

Federer was only cool enough to nab an obese slob like Mirka.

It may shock you to know that if anorexic boniness was all a marriage took, 3/4 of the women in the world would not be married - nor 3/4 of the men.

Neither is cool, but even if his personality consists in crying and failing at looking intimidating when posing for pictures http://www.atpworldtour.com/~/media/1327AA13E9744ECD91163A51E0564766.ashx?w=90&h=120&c=1Federer is MR T compared to Sampras.

This is the END of this thread! Sampras wins. Mirka is just a hotter version of Bartoli (or Alice Kiselyuck)

Sampras was a great player, but he was boring.I almost always rooted for his opponent. Fed seems like a dork, but a nice guy.

Not being English native-speaker, I don't know what "cool" exactly means : if it means "cool-quiet" then Sampras ; if it means "cool-nice" then Federer

He has my vote tied up, unless he can learn the correct usage of "who" and "whom". I am normally very tolerant of posters for whom English is not their first language, but I fear GOATPARERA is one who annoys me.

I am English and I don't know exactly what it means either. As it is a slang term it can mean whatever you want it to mean, similarly to "wicked", a more modern equivalent. You know instinctively whether a person, thing or activity is "cool" or not, but fashions change.

You, my friend, are cool; the thread starter is not. Hope this helps.

N.B. Before anybody retorts, I'm not cool either!:D

Thanks for the explanations, my dictionary refers to "relaxed" and "easy-going", for that I don't know if it refers more to Sampras or Federer.

Federer looks quite easy-going, even though it's not always an easy attitude, I don't know exactly for Sampras.

cool is unrelated to that in my book, cool just means likable and easy going. Simply not giving a shit :devil:

Well if i had to pick it would be federer, reason check out some of sampras interviews after his matches. Yep boring as hell and who cares what you think of him attidude.

I disagree. One can judge immediately, as long as one is prepared to admit one's mistake if it later becomes necessary.

Maybe because the guy is authentic enough for that.

Sampras definitely is the most genuine-seeming number one of recent times. I can see why his fans probably feel a greater connection to him, he isn't trying to be cool (and that comes across as cool)!

"Cool" has morphed into a general term of approbation. If it retains any definite meaning, it has to do with a lack of pettiness & artificiality.

Roger is Mick Jagger in comparison to Sampras, which was a great player but sooooo dull, boring, absolutely without charisma

Not to be a grammar Nazi, but it's not "whom", it's "who". Whom refers to a direct object and there is none in that sentence.

It basically means "suave". If someone is cool it means they are very gracefull, move well, good looking (although not always in just a straightforward way), speak well and everyone wants to be just like them.

Kind of like Michael Jackson was cool, Arnold Shwazzanigger was cool, like the popular jocks in school were cool.

It's just basically means someone who everyone looks up to, someone who people enjoy watching.

Federer speaks kind of crazy in press-conferences so I'd say Sampras is a lot cooler, they are like opposites! Sampras is all lay-back and careless like he has nothing to prove, whereas Federer is like 'I won this and this and this, got to be happy with all that even though I lost...'!

huh? Maybe it seems like that to you since English isn't your mother tongue -- and on the subject of languages, I think Fed is really cool to be able to conduct press conferences fluently in three languages! Can't get much cooler than that

The answer to this question is so obvious, even a five year old can answer.


Sampras sweat bullets on the court, to the point he should have worn depends to cover up that gigantic sweat spot that encompassed his shorts.


Non mono-Federer, even in a 5th set of a match, looks dry with barely a glisten of sweat on his forehead


Ergo, federer is the cooler dude

Pretty true. Federer seems more fake, as he has an image to protect. Sampras is a more boring guy....but at least he isn't being fake to impress others. That is the epitome of cool.

Exactly, too cool to care....Sampras very meat and potatoes, all about results, not stardom!

Who is never right, its a stupid-looking 3-letter word. Always go with Whom, much better looking word. I've already mastered grammar so I have no use for it anymore!

Nah, we are talking about off-court. Plus Sampras shows more composure than Federer on-court anyway. WOW I'm only 5 and I still out-intelligented you!

think you inadvertently said that right: "seems".. which simply means that's how it appears to you.... doesn't mean it appears to others that way :)
