Hoodjem, I understand your point about the new emphasis on "slam count" as a central measure with Sampras, although majors were always coveted. With Sampras, there was definitely a change in terms of the central criterion. Yet, I would argue that besides the fact that Sampras does not have the most majors, I still consider him to be one of the all time greats and an argument can be made for him to be right at the top. He of course excelled as a fast court player, but did not have great results on clay.
