Roddick made the overhead look like a routine shot, while Sampras had to introduce needless acrobatics to get more credit. Anyway, I'm not saying that Sampras had a weak smash, not by any means, he had an excellent overhead, just think that Roddick and Federer have better.

Besides, Sampras didn't have to backpedal much to get to that lob, the ball would land midcourt if he let it bounce.
