Far from all of the obsessional arguing on this forum between posters, I actually think this is a big compliment to Sampras and perhaps Sampras is a lot better than they are letting on with their comments (if you see what I mean). If you think about it, Sampras last played a match in 2002 and yet on a daily basis his name is mentioned in General Pro Player discussion more than almost 98% of the current tour players.
I kind of see this all now as a bit of a laugh and not to be taken seriously.
