Had Fed never won Wimbledon, then you have a point, but Fed went on to win 7 titles. So his win over Sampras count, because that was the passing of the torch. Remember Pete beat Lendl in 1990 USO and they met only 1 time, that was also the point of passing the torch since Pete went on to win 5 titles.
Rosol beat Nadal at wimbledon, that's just one match and upset does happen. However if Rosol managed to win multiple Wimbledons in the future, his win is just as good as Federer over Sampras.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
