I value the money that I work hard to earn, so I would bet exactly zero.

Federer couldn't even handle a at his Peak Andre Agassi in 2001. I think Fed only won like 3 games lol and Pete found a way to beat him without Andre or Pete losing their serve! GOAT

You would think somebody would post that match on youtube but nobody wants to hurt Roger's Feelings! Agassi should have won that title he was clearly playing lights out tennis. If not for Sampras going into another gear and taking Agassi out of the match, Agassi would have easily won the title!

You can tell one thing about Samprastards. They are losing confidence. At first there was Setsampras. Now we have Gamesampras. Next up: Pointsampras.

When was the last time Sampras ever lost in a major when he was up 2 sets to none?
When was the last time Sampras ever lost when up 2 sets to none at Wimbledon and the U.S Open?
When was the last time Pete ever lost in U.S. Open Semifinal when serving for the match up 40 -15?
When was the last time Pete ever lost to the same player in 2 straight U.S Open semifinals when having double match point in both matches?
How about NEVER to all of the above.
Again, Federer was always great playing stiffs like Roddick and soft hitting Hewitt. Put Federer in against great players like Nadal and Djokovic and we see how over rated the guy really is.
Federer is a great player against dogshttt competition, but against great players we see his flaws come out. Namely he's a choker.
The facts are Federer never really beat a great player to win a major. He compiled 16 majors against soft competition.
The greatest player Federer ever dominated was Roddick. Not saying much is it.
Sampras, on the other hand won 14 majors against alltime great champions like Becker, Agassi, Edberg, Rafter, Courtier, Lendl.
That's why clearly Sampras is the greatest ever. And that's why Federer in my mind is the king of the dogshhht era. A great player, but weak mentally.
