While I agree that Sampras couldn't match Fed from the backcourt (or a host of other players) for the most part, I can see him matching/beating Fed for a few points from back there - IMO, the big points.

I can see Sampras attacking Fed's 2nd serve more, putting him under pressure. I think he could make Fed crack just a bit to pull off the win (similar to the margin you suggest).
