Sampras's running forehand is the best shot of all his groundstrokes. Those who didn't really watch Sampras in the 90's are misguided by the simplified abstract of how good he is (only serve and volley). It was the shot most young kids at the time tried to copy. Running at full speed and reaching the ball that was about to drop to the second bounce, people thought he would just be able to get the ball back over the net. Then, boom! another outright winner. He did this over and over.
