Federer is clearly superior to Sampras on hard courts.

Fellate Sampras all you want, I still think he would get smoked by Baghdatis in a gyro eating contest.

I haven't paid attention to carpet:

Sampras= Grass

Federer= Hard (hence why it took 5 sets for his last 3x losses at the USO).

Nadal= Clay

Decoturf USO? Has it really come to this? How about slow indoor courts? Well lit indoor courts? Poorly lit indoor courts? Medium speed hardcourts? Hot weather hardcourts vs cool weather hardcourts? Composite hardcourts? How about who was the best on 1995 US Open hardcourts? Hardcourts can vary by day though so maybe the August 30th 1995 decoturf US Open hardcourts were ruled by Sampras by the August 31st courts Agassi was better?

Agassi is the best AO player?? The guy didn't even bother to show up there until 1995. Federer has reached 7 consecutive SFs at the AO, and 5 finals (won 4).

Actually according to this dude both Sampras and Agassi are superior hardcourt players to Federer. There's nothing quite like blind homerism huh?

Federer is the best on hard courts by far. In future, due to some freak shift of dynamics affecting tennis, it might become the norm for players to be top contenders for 20 years. In that case someone might sneak 12+ hard court slams by using their longevity to mitigate their inability to sustain extremely high levels of play year after year. But the likelihood of someone once again winning 5 straight times at a hard court slam is far lower than someone grabbing a huge number of HC slams in future. That alone makes Federer the superior HC player, not to mention the fact that he's actually won more HC slams than anyone else.

:haha: SetSampras taking it into overdrive. I don't get it, did Federer beating Sampras at Wimbledon just not happen to you or what? That was the old style too, Fed beat Sampras at his own S/V game and badly exposed Sampras's mediocre volleys and poor backhand.

And Federer won the AO in both Plexicushion AND Rebound Ace... ;)

Grass: Sampras (Federer close second)
Hard: Federer
Clay: Nadal (Borg close second)
