The only good answer to who jumps higher is "no way to tell", at least not based on a couple of show-off slam dunks that Sampras performed from time to time.

This is common knowledge. The Sampras serve wasn't know for it's speed but for it's precision, consistency and damage it made. His 2nd serve is clearly better despite hitting way more double faults than Federer (well, Federer doesn't hit double faults at all for the matter, it's just not worth going for it)
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
