nadal made the finals of the AO, sampras was out in 3R of the FO .....

W,F,2R, DNP is still by by some distance better than W,3R,DNP,DNP .....

sampras was 40-8 in 1999 ...
nadal 42-6 in 2012 ...

so nadal's better there too ...

sampras' has two things in his favour though - the YEC and one more title ....

still that proves another fail from 90s clay aka gamesampras ....
