Wow, wow, wow, hold your horses buddy. Sampras didn't even win all 4 slams and has about half as many master titles as Nadal.

This prediction is WAY premature. We'll know more about where Rafa stands after the clay season. His results on hard have been a bit shaky since 2009 (with the shining exception of his USO 2010 success) but his results on clay have stayed strong. I'm not gonna give credit to any definitive statement until we see what happens on clay.
