so fat chance, he adjusts to todays conditions. he did not have enough in him to go through 2 of the top 4 consecutively.
IMO, he would have a career like feliciano lopez in today's conditions. Maybe a little worse cos lopez has the advantage of being a lefty.
I'm not sure "could not" is accurate. I think it is more like "would not". Pete Sampras was built to win Wimbledon. I'm sure he would have loved to win the French to complete the career slam, but it was clear that he wasn't going to alter his game for a better shot at one slam that he may or may not win, when he could dominate on grass and be the odds on favorite in the other two with the style he was using.
