Don't place too much weight on my above post - I sometimes get excitable when these debates arise. I think Sampras would be a fine player with wood, just a different one.
probably true. It's funny but when he first hit the scene he reminded me of the film I'd seen of Jack Kramer. Sampras was the first player I remember to have a powerful and pretty all court game. The S & V crowd that I grew up with didn't have the prettiest ground strokes (McEnroe and Edberg pop to mind).
