Sampras > Nadal by a big margin at the moment.
Sampras didn't have to face a 5-7 year younger Djokovic, Nadal and Murray on every surface all the time. Instead he played Agassi who besides 9 months of great form in 1995 was almost a non-factor until 1999 when Sampras already was already sitting at 11-12 majors.
