...and Sampras says "we competed a little bit. i'm happy to say i kind of held my own, and made him work a little bit which is a good accomplishment at this age, at 35"

i think there was some suggestion that one or two sets went to tiebreaker.... you realize pete has been off-tour for 5 years.... now, if rog could only beat canas, or rafa for that matter.

duhhh -- If Rog could beat Rafa, if Rafa could beat Blake, if Blake could beat Fed. Or If Rog could beat Rafa, if Rafa could beat Youzhney, if Youzhney could beat Fed and so on.
Jeezz.. this is circular -- get out of this circle!

War, Safin!

Roughly translated as: "He whooped me and No, I'm not coming back".

Of course he later said he thinks he could take on anyone in the WORLD in a best of 3 set match, so he must have done ok against Federer.

That's how I'm reading this. If Pete continues to play well then I really think we will see some Pete v ATP player to be announced exhibition matches (2 out of 3 set format) in the near future. A Pete v Roger exhibition may happen folks.

When asked at Indian Wells, Federer did say they played some games, set, and tiebreaks. When asked the score......Federer replied, "Can't tell you, but it was good fun."

my point was that the scores vs. sampras are completely irrelevent.... and that fed (and his fans) should have bigger things to occupy their mind (canas, nadal).

i feel bad coming down on you, because from your response i get the idea that english may be a second language.... or maybe it's just abnormally low intelligence.

Actually, I agree with him. And on his defense, notice how he capitalizes his "I's," that is the correct way. So if anyone were to say anything about low intelligence, or having English as a second language, it wouldn't be you.
