  Resolved Question: Roger Federer vs Pete
A lot of people used to consider Sampras the best ever,( myself included) despite the fact that he totally sucked on clay, no wonder he never won the French. Much emphasis has always been put on the quickness of the surfaces which are now slower than years past to decode the chances of a given player to win matches, I think Federer regardless of surface speed or racket technology is by far the most complete player of the two, sure, Sampras had that monster serve and volley game, plus that killer instinct that I think Federer never truly had or needed for that matter during his years of dominance.

  Resolved Question: Better Serve: Fed or
1st Serve: I'm not sure. Pete has more explosive power, but Roger has the accuracy/precision and better disguise. 2nd Serve: Pete's second serve is just as deadly as the first, Roger, not so much. *Other Factors: Fed has the most beautiful and fluid serve in the history of the sport.

  Resolved Question: If Pete Sampras were
Fans, I've asked similar rhetoric in other questions about the legendary Sampras, mainly in comparative, hypothetical What If scenarios versus current pros. That said, I began to wonder what noticeable differences WOULD exist in Pete's prime, say '97 or '98, compared to a Young Pete Sampras ENTERING HIS PRIME in 2011: Q 1. If Pete Sampras were about to peak in 2011, and was far from reaching his mid-20s in 2011, WHAT MAJOR DIFFERENCES WOULD HE EXHIBIT AS A PRO? Q 2. Would Sampras be less Serve & Volley? Q 3. Would he have a more devastating serve surpassing Roddick's to accommodate the baseline bravado of 2011? Q 4. Would Pete have a game reminiscent of Federer's? Q 5. What court differences existed in, say Wimbledon grass (his favorite surface) in 1997 or 1998 compared to 2011 Wimbledon grass courts? Side-Note: I remember the courts of Wimbledon in 1998, and they WERE FAR from cobble-stoned, grassy knolls folks state that they are compared to Wimbledon 2011 grass! In other words I find it hard to believe that grass in 1998 is somehow different from 2011 grass. Just my opinion.
