But Petetards would "counter" that with "Sampras did not grow up on clay" or "movement on clay was his weakness, so that shouldn't count" or some other lame reason, as if that is supposed to nullify his failures on clay when the all-time discussions come up. Also, didn't you know that:
- you're not talented if you don't serve & volley
- you're not talented if you don't play on fast surfaces, especially fast grass
- you ARE talented even if you suck on a surface
based on these criteria, Nadal CANNOT be more talented than Sampras..
