Olympics wasn't as relevant when Sampras was playing, but Career Slam + Masters Record > Weeks at #1 + YECs, so Nadal.

Sampras and its not even remotely close
Rafa without RG and slowed down courts = poor mans Novak Djokovic

Sampras probably still by a decent margin due to the huge lead in weeks at #1 as well as the bundle of WTF / Master Cup titles. however if Nadal gets a few WTF's then I put him ahead, or another slam (preferably on HC or grass)

Very close. Sampras didn't get CGS, true, but it was much harder to do then- though here I guess Nadal is still better, because while Nadal wouldn't get CGS in Sampras's era, Sampras also still wouldn't get it in this one. And Nadal won more Masters, Sampras the WTF which about cancels out. Sampras just edges it on weeks at #1 for me, but one more Slam and Nadal is probably greater.

Nadal NID
He tortures the other best players again and again in slams
