Hall of Fame
Nah, he's talking about his form during one tournament which was amazing, and probably among the best of his life. The problem with using Pete's quotes is that he contradicts himself on his level. Case in point, "Legends of Wimbledon" he says that his match against Andre was the best tennis he's ever played in his life. In the same series he says Wimbledon 1997 was the best he's ever played at Wimbledon etc.https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/tennis/last-match-was-best-i-ever-played-says-sampras-83754.html
"Everyone was getting better when I was No 1 in the world and winning majors left and right. I was 10 times the player as I got older. When I was dominating I didn't have any bad matches and players overall weren't as good. The 2002 US Open Pete would beat the 1994 or 1995 Pete easily."
Same sort of stuff Fed says.
Also, in interviews before the 2007 US Open he said during his prime the competition was much deeper than today.
Fed doesn't contradict himself like this (to my knowledge).
