Very, very interesting, but we won't settle it here. We'll just have to see the longevity if Roger's dominance to evaluate. Many have said the same about Venus at her dominant period however, it now looks like she will never win another slam even 'tho she is very young. Hard to think at that time that Venus was done for Slams by the time she was 18. She was fortunate to ink that $40 million deal with Reebok which has since expired. Although I do think that Sampras faced more diverse opponents in his time, Roger faces primarily baseliners. With his incomparable array of shots, Roger is very perplexing to the typically baseline who hits 85% forehands and is uncomfortable at net. Perhaps this explains his complete dominance during this period.
