He would not be able to compete with these guys with that forehand. It's flashy and explosive, but it's just not the most consistent shot. It would get broken down and exploited with the kind of points he'd have to play. If he couldn't break through on clay in his era with it, he's not going to break through now most certainly. His serve makes him competative with anyone ever, but again he's dangerous floater territory rather then a favorite. A smaller and less athletic Tsonga is a good comparison.
You are a joke my friend. Sampras does everything better than Tsonga. He is practically a much better version of Tsonga. If Tsonga can be top ten today, I have no doubt that Sampras can be much more.
