Federer would've won 1 and 2 if he gave 100% effort just like Sampras did. He didn't want Pete to look like a wimp out there and took it easy on him. Only complete fools think that a 36-year old Sampras could beat top players on any kind of surface.
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
