As usual, the answer is "it depends".

Samp was clearly a better fast court player, but Djokovic is so much more accomplished as far as most variables go, and he will probably continue to gain ground where he is behind.

It is safe to say that by the end of his career that would not be a question.

I think Novak is definitely the greater player now. It's interesting that they both won their 14th slams at 31 and at the USO as well.

The difference is that Pete was on his way out, while Novak is on his way up.
Players have greater longevity these days. 31 was ancient back in the day.
