In today's interview Fed had some nice things to say about Pete. Wish there wasn't as much animosity here when discussing current and past champions.

Roger, how would you describe what Pete Sampras's record and his legacy mean to you?

Well, everybody knows what a hero he is to me and how much I admire what he's been able to achieve in tennis.
I mean, he obviously, I don't think he ever lost a grandslam final here at Wimbledon. He won 7 out of 7 which is just incredible.
Particularly in the times he played against all these big severs and were things were you know, a bit more unpredictable let's say.
So I am very proud to have a shot of equalling Pete. Right now the focus is oboviously resting and preparing for the next match.

Fed could of already had 7 Wimbledon's if the court's weren't so slow relative to the past. Towards the end the 2 weeks with enough heat and worn out grass it's not that different a bounce from clay.
