Sampras is not as good as Federer. He was basically given a free pass by his next gen (Kuerten, Kafelnikov.. really?). If they were as good as Gen X+1 for Federer, Sampras would be languishing in single-digits in slams. Agassi was able to play into his 30s because he had very little mileage in his mid-20s. it's not rocket science.
Doesn't this suggest that Gen X+1 is not all that good?
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are aggressively certain, while the intelligent are full of doubt.
