Because they're just ridiculous, that's why. The winning h2h thing is silly. It's not Federer's fault that he's the second best clay courter of this era so that when he gets in deep and has to play the best clay courter ever, he ends up losing. Nadal is a great: he beat Fed at the AO and Wimbledon as well. If you're able to remain at the top of the game for getting close to 10 years now vs. your rival who has taken multiple-month down-times due to injury, then you really kinda are the better player. Everyone has a foil, and Sampras had his. The fact that his main rival was all over the place doesn't exactly bode well in the discussion about the h2h factor.
