With the current conditions, I wouldn't pick Sampras on any surface.
No way I would bet all my saving just for one tennis match even if I'm very confident that I will win. That's crazy, and I'm sure your family and love ones would strongly urge you not to..
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
