Sampras was my favourite player growing up and I still consider him a legend both for his attacking style and the way he gunned for the sport's biggest records and achieved them. *

Nevertheless there is no way I can rank Pete ahead of either Fed or Laver. He just wasn't complete enough a player and never won the French.


* P.S. I do realise that the "slam count" is not as impressive as Pete thought it was due to the absence of Gonzales/Rosewall/Laver etc. for large periods of their career.
