LOL and you probably even think Federer's competition on grass is at all comparable to Sampras's.
Sampras competition on grass- Becker, Agassi, Ivanisevic, Krajicek, Henman, Rafter, Philippoussis, Stich, Martin.
Federer competition on grass- Nadal, Roddick, Hewitt, the end.
All the guys today are hard court specialists, to a lesser degree clay courters. There are hardly any quality grass courters today at all, it is an empty field on that surface.
