Federer vs Sampras – By the numbers.

Posted by tennisplanet on July 15, 2007

This assignment took forever. It was so stressful that I had to put on my clothes. Other living creatures in my basement were looking at me as if I have gone nuts. Just appreciate all I go through, for all you miserable freaks and zombies.

It appears your 10th year in tennis is slide time, judging from the best so far. Federer is in his ninth year right now.

Federer got to the No. 1 spot a year late, so he has to maintain that spot past his 10th year, to just match Sampras’s six straight years at the helm.

Sampras never won more than 10 titles in a year, whereas Federer has done it three times already, with 11, 11 and 12.

Federer has four titles this year and has eight tournaments he is entered in for the rest of the year. Sampras had eight titles this year with two Grand Slams.

Sampras never won more than two Grand Slams in a year. So he was not even close to completing a calendar Grand Slam, forget about a career Grand Slam, since he never reached the finals of Roland Garros.

Federer has won three Grand Slams twice in a year and has been to the finals at Roland Garros twice. So he was very close to completing both the calendar and career Grand Slam.

This year is starting to look a little testier for Federer, than any of his past three years. Can he right the ship and blow past Sampras? Or will history repeat itself?
