I think Pete had it hard on clay due to better/more clay court specialists....Back then people were more specialised...today, people are more versatile. There is (in my opinion) no way Federer would have done AS well as he did if he played in the era of Sampras. There were just too many "greats" back then...

There should be a thread adressing:
"What would have happened if Sampras and Federer switched eras"
