If we discount clay there is not a huge variance between Fed and Sampras.
16 slams to 14 (7 Wimbledons apiece, 5 US Opens apiece), 19 slam finals to 18, 6 YECs to 5, 5 YE No 1's to 6.
We might give Fed a very slight edge but it would be debatable who is greater. The reason Fed is considered greater than Sampras is the fact that he is also great on clay.
