How would the slams race have been today if Sampras+Agassi were 5 and 6 years older to Roger Federer ?

I feel this scenario would have benefitted Roger Federer.

Roger might have lost 2-3 slams to Andre-Pete during his peak, instead of 12 slams he might have won 9 in 04-07, but he would have been mentally tougher, Peter+Andre would have forced Roger to improve his game in 04-08 years and Roger would have compensated those 3 slams by maybe out clutching Novak/Rafa for an additional 4-5 slams, in the long run he might have benefitted and Rafa/Novak would have suffered .....

What do you think ???

Agassi vs Novak matches might also have happened
Peter vs Rafa also might have happened.
Sampras vs Roddick in a Pace Race (with serve).
Peter and Andre would both be using new racquets as well to adjust to modern game
So much drama between 2000-2012
 
It is hard to say. One thing to remember whenever Agassi is involved though is Agassi is not a constant. Especialy not in his physical prime age wise. He will flucuate in and out of form, and he will not be a consistent challenger, but an on and off one. Just look at his Year End rankings from 1990 to 2000, it looks like a lotto board basically.

Fed would win 30-35 slams, for sure.

Agassi has the same game which Novak has, it would have definitely helped Roger tackle both Novak and Rafa facing him
Vs Pete maybe Roger might be forced to improve his serve even more in his peak \

Win-Win situation for Roger

Facing Roddick and Past his prime Hewitt from 04 to 07 actually hurt Roger more than it benefitted....the ripple effects of it we are now seeing 15 years later
