Get a clue, you're completely biased; that's like saying that Roddick's hold and winning percentage on clay should be the true measure of how effective his serve is compared to Federer's. It's shameless bias, and you know it. There's no reason to say clay vs. other surfaces is a better indicator. I could just as easily say that old grass is the best indicator of how well you hold serve, since you NEED to hold serve to have a chance.

But i'm not going to say that, because it's nonsense. So I'm playing by the hold percentage.

Right, Federer has more grass titles because he played warmup tournaments. Sampras has more Wimbledons, where it really counts. and no, the only person who should be embarassed is you, telling someone to be objective when you're the single most biased person in the thread.

You make normal Fed fans look bad. And Sampras absolutely deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Federer.
Good to see some Fed fans with an objective view on Sampras. There's no doubt Fed has exceeded Sampras's accomplishments but he was a great player nonetheless, at least top 5 all time. Some *******s make it look like Sampras would be schooled by Nalbandian!
