If gets to 14 GS by winning 3 more FO's Sampras will still be great IMO. Courtesy of him still being far superior on 2/3's of the tour + the weeks as number #1. To me that's one of Nadal's biggest drawbacks, he's only been #1 for a small period of time compared to other greats. Granted Federer and now Djokovic have been in his way but it's still a knock.
