    This video should be showed to all those who say Sampras didn't have personality.

    Sampras was really awesome and an inspiration to many (at least myself) :D

    He did handle him, twice. But Canas pushed Sampras as hard as he can push Federer:

    Sampras v. Canas
    2002 Cincinnati TMS Ohio, USA Hard R64 5-7 7-6(6) 6-3
    2002 World Team Cup Dusseldorf, Germany Clay RR 7-5 2-6 7-6(5)

    Remember, young Canas vs. late Sampras.

    ^^ The young Canas wasn't as good a player as he is today. Federer spanked him in 2005 when they met at Indian Wells. I saw the match and it just didn't seem like Canas had any shot of pulling off an upset. Canas after suspension has actually improved his serve and his backhand.

    That's so funny to see the GOAT toying with Canas.
