You have it reverse actually. Sampras won 14 in 52
and Federer has won 17 in 54
. Didn't you get that info from me?
But Sampras does have some arguments for GOAT. He was number one six years in a row and he did win the Italian Open on clay. So he was somewhat of a force on clay. Overall I don't think he's logically a name you should use with the top few of the GOAT candidates list.
