We can't stand Ape-man (aka sampras). I hope he does play Federer again, so Federer can whollop him, again.
Sampras was a BORING tennis player, he relied mainly on his serve. Everytime he serves he sticks his tongue out like a blob. He didn't have the competition that is out there today. It's tough to realize how amazing all the players are because Roger Federer is SO perfect. Now THAT is grace on the courts! Also Sampras is egotistical and hairy. Blech.
We strongly dislike people comparing Fed to Apeman.
Ahhh... that felt good to vent!

Only a jackass like you would say something like that, and which competition are you talking about with Federer, competition my ass, you have to be blind are something - There is no competition playing today, Roger is having it easy on tour my dear, very easy.

Actually Sampras had it pretty easy. Michael Chang was number 2 in the world during his peak in the mid 90's (Agassi was up and down). Sammpras let a chump like Marcelo Rios take over as number one in the world. Federer by contrast is preventing an all time great (Nadal) from becoming #1. Nadal has held steady at #2 for the longest time ever.

Ok...listen folks. Sampras has won matches while crying, hurling, and even cramping so STFU. The man has Thalassemia Minor. Google it. How many slams would he have if he didn't?
As for competition try McEnroe, Becker, Edberg, Courier, Agassi, Lendl, Rafter and Wilander. Perhaps some folks are too young to remember, but he (arguably) possessed the greatest second serve, overhead and running forehand in history. I'm in the same train of thought as McEnroe: unless Federer wins the French Open AND breaks Sampras' major record, he just isn't the best ever.
Now Federer already has 12 slams at 26 and he obviously beats everyone except Nadal, Canas, and Djokovic very easily. I doubt that he is physically fitter than any of them. Therefore, most of his game is MENTAL and, with that, he dominates the game. The only former champion on earth with the mental game that might pose problems is Sampras'. That is why I'm looking forward to online videos of the Federer-Sampras exhibition match. Oh, and "Emme Foroe": don't call legends like Sampras anything other than legends.
