    funny how your fanboi radar is never seems to detect Pete fanbois who make ridiculous claims (like Sampras beating Nadal on clay because Federer was able to do it, or Sampras facing "tougher" competition)...

    btw, I'll save you some trouble: I AM a Federer fanboi, never denied it.

    You don't even have to play the "past-his-prime Sampras beaten by Kuerten" card. *Prime* Sampras was straight-setted by Muster in Essen in 1995, so he was anything but invincible indoor, despite what his apologists would like us to believe. By way of comparison, can you imagine Nadal beating Federer 7/6, 6/2 at WTF in 2004-2006? Because that's what we're talking about here (actually, not exactly, because Essen was much quicker than the ATP finals have been these last few years, which should favour... Sampras; so it would have to be an even sounder thrashing of Fed by Nadal indoor to compare).

    Read my 'history' and you will see that I am a fan of Federer and think he's the better player of the two. What you fail to see is the overwhelming number of threads and fedfanboys such as yourself who use these troll threads to needlessly drag Sampras' name out of the woodwork for the purpose of denegrating him, plain and simple. I'm talking about those threads that didn't even involve Sampras in the first place. Petetards? They exist, maybe 1-2 out of 10. The fedfanboys? 10 to 1.

    btw, you'll not save me any trouble, your username pretty much says it all. "Rulz?" i mean, pleeze....:rolleyes:
