Some people seriously underrate Sampras as a claycourt player and Nadal as a grasscourt player.

Nadal would take atleast 1 match off Sampras on grass (not as likely if they only play 3 matches, but if it was 5ish, then for sure - consider Sampras's 3 set grass record @ Queen's, for example) and Sampras would take atleast 1 match off Nadal on clay (Sampras didn't suck on clay, and Nadal can have bad days - Soderling, in case).

Mind you, I think Nadal would be more dominant on clay in their h2h than Sampras would be on any surface, but that's only my $0.02
