I think we agree. Sampras wouldn't be at the level of Fed 2004-2006 or Nole 2011, but he wouldn't be far from their 2009 level I think.
In a big match on a non clay surface (but current surfaces) I wouldn't bet, especially my life, on a tennis match which would surely be very close! I think Fed would be the favorite on every surfaces and Nole the favorite on slow surfaces. Sa
