Interesting. Even over Nadal on clay? I sort of see that as being hard. I already consider Nadal probably the 2nd greatest clay courter in history after Borg. Then again like you said Sampras is one of the greatest match players in history like you said so I guess it is possible. I suspect he would have played better than Federer did in his French finals with Nadal, despite that Federer is a slightly better overall clay courter than Pete.
