There is not a snowballs chance in hell that Roddick had a better overhead than Sampras. Federer also isn't aas decisive with his putaways.

Doesn't move well enough.

Back on topic it's hard to vote.

Sampras was stronger and could jump higher. As I said before speed is hard to choose, but probably edge to Federer. Federer is fitter too and more agile. If they had to compete in a Decatholon, my money would be on Sampras.
His backhand was way weaker. Their FH are close.
