"While Roger Federer may indeed be the best player ever to hold a racket -- and he may break all of Pete Sampras' records -- watching this DVD reminded me of just how great Sampras was. At his best, Sampras was every bit as sublime as Federer; it's just too bad Federer had to come along so soon after Sampras retired.
This DVD is a fitting tribute to Sampras, featuring extensive match footage and interviews with the players who knew him best: Agassi, Courier, Becker, Ivanicevic, Krajicec, Henman -- even Federer pauses to pay tribute to his former idol and predecessor. And just for the record, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, and Martina Hingis put in their two cents as well.
Special features include match statistics and condensed versions of Sampras' first Wimbledon victory over Jim Courier and his last over Patrick Rafter.
Could Sampras have beaten Federer? When he was on, Sampras could beat anyone, and I don't think Federer would dispute this. Meanwhile, champion that he is, Sampras has said repeatedly that he expects Federer to break all of his records, Wimbledon and otherwise."
