What is Sampras’s feeling on Anaconda joining Federer?

Posted by tennisplanet on July 26, 2010

The further away Federer gets from No. 14, Sampras’s sparkle will dampen proportionately. Sampras is still rationalizing No. 15 and 16 with Nadal’s absence – an argument many feel has only gained strength with Nadal’s current run.

Add that with that certain knowledge Sampras has of Anaconda’s ability to turn things around and you have to doubt whatever politically correct BS comes out of Sampras when questioned on this.

Just being passed is painful enough but to have your former coach play a massive part in adding to the trauma is like adding insult to injury, don’t you think?

The ONLY factor that may soften the impact is if Sampras can somehow be guaranteed of Federer’s eternal friendship in exchange – and complete boycott of Agassi. Federer knows exactly where Sampras is among other US tennis greats. Last exho with Agassi removed any doubts if there were any.

Bottom line: Sampras has no friend and is looking for Federer to fill that void. If Federer agrees, not only will Sampras have a companion it will be like revenge against other US players vying for Federer’s good graces – shamelessly. This dynamic is pretty close to where Federer himself is vis-a-vis Woods – despite the scandal.

So Federer should make a deal with Sampras to close another one – in a hurry.

    Frankly, I’m getting tired of the Sampras bashing. I always loved Pete and, before Roger, he was my all time favorite. I still love him, and was devestated when he got beat by Roger. Pete was a great champion and doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment by anyone. We need to show respect to past champions instead of continually belittling them. He had a wonderful work ethic, was focused and poised on the court. He brought so many fans to American tennis. His serve was phenomenal, and his serve and volley was unbeatable. Let’s give credit where credit is due and stop the harrassment! He was no bum, and shouldn’t be treated like one. Just because his personality didn’t please everyone, didn’t mean he didn’t have one – and no one can please everyone all the time. Pete was, and always will be, considered a great player.
