What Sampras still uses to not give up the ‘better than Federer’ notion.
Posted by tennisplanet on September 8, 2010
-He has beaten Federer in his prime. Even though it was an exho, Sampras’s age of 35 years, he feels, more than compensates for Federer coming off a full season or it being an exhibition. Until Federer beats ‘Federer-like’ opponent is his 35th year, he is holding on to it.
-Sampras may have lost the Slam battle but he feels his winning H2H against his arch rival Agassi 20-14 balances that disparity more than adequately to give him an edge.
-Has won 7 freaking Wimbledon titles – place Federer calls his home – but the key is still held by someone else.
-Still enjoys the most weeks at No. 1 rank lead. Even though Federer is still active the likelihood of him bridging that seven-day gap appears slim if not none.
