I take it back about that weak serve comments form me in the past. Federer does have a real fast and potent serve.
So you claiming that Sampras's serve had an additional 15 mph on it compared to Sampras is an utter lie as Sampras' FASTEST EVER RECORDED SPEED clocked at 135, which is nothing faster than Federer's fastest ever 1st serve.
Those stats which I found only prove that Sampras had a consistently better 2nd serve than Federer (not even by much) which I agree with (and always has), even considering that the surfaces were way faster in the Sampras era.
Also, for such a Federer fan you seem to favor Sampras quite heavily. Luckily, reality is on Federer's side.
