I saw this match yesterday on Tennis Channel from the 1997 Davis Cup between Pete Sampras and Mark Philippoussis in Sept. '97 (I assume the DC semis?), and it just reminded me so clearly what a dominant player Sampras was in his prime. This guy used to play some awesome, jaw-dropping, eye-popping tennis. I remember when I used to watch him play during his prime I actually felt sorry for his opponents because he was just clearly so much better and playing on another level and he made his opponents look like amateurs. Well, watching this match gave me that feeling all over again. I now have no doubt in my mind that Sampras in his prime would destroy Federer in his prime. I mean Sampras even "beat" Federer 10 years past his prime and 5 years into his retirement, imagine what he would have done to Federer is he were 10 years younger and in his prime? :shock: Anyway, if you haven't seen this match or haven't seen Sampras play in his prime, you owe it to yourself to catch it. Tennis Channel will be repeating it this Saturday, 4/5, at 4pm EST/1pm PST.
