Default Does Federer care about Sampras' last record?

Fed has crushed or equalled every record that ex GOAT Sampy ever held. But there is one more left which he hasn't conquered: 6 year end #1's. I was surprised when he played DC, because it might well cost him the year end #1 ranking. He said after the tie that he was exhausted and needed a holiday. But then I learned that the Swiss would have fallen out of the world group if they lost the tie.

Roger is obviously very loyal to his country, but his individual achievements have probably enjoyed priority over his country(they are not mutually exclusive). But still it got me wondering how much he really cares about Sampy's last record. Does he feel like passing the record amount of weeks at #1 was enough, or does he feel like he can still end the year ranked #1?

Discuss.

Noserer forum.

Also, refering to him as the GOAT? At least Sampras wasn't a pigeon of his biggest rival

I honestly don't think he cares that much because he has the most weeks at #1.

I would feel bad for Sampras if all of his records were broken by Roger.

Do you think Roger feels the same about his friend Sampy?

Default Re: Does Federer care about Sampras' last record?

federer doesn't give a shit about year end no 1

if he did, he wouldn't be thinking of skipping paris, and he's foolish enough to think that he can gain points in shanghai, murray's turf

if federer reaches the final, murray will humiliate him

can't gain in basel or WTF

so, short answer: djokovic Year End no 1, and rightly so

Federer was clearly thinking about 2013 Davis Cup, the true final hole in his resume.

No. I'm sure Federer is more interested in trying to break Sampras' record of most times puked on court at a USO quarter-final. Do you think Roger could get 2?!

Probably not, as Noserer's diet consists of girly Euro food that is easy on the stomach. Pete's diet was rough, manly food consisting of medium rare steaks, chips, beer and his opponent's tears. Playing even a 3 setter was rough for him. Noserer has no idea.

True that, he'll have to step up his game if he wants to puke twice in a USO QF
