#4 Pete Sampras

American Tennis Player Pete Sampras

Talking about legends, Pete Sampras came to the world of tennis before Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and took away and was leading the grand slam tally in men’s department with 14 grand slams, that included 7 Wimbledon titles.

Sampras didn’t have a pleasant time at Rolland Garros since he usually had an early exit from the tournament. The typical Pete Sampras style of serve and volley didn’t lead to fruitful results in Paris. His best result in the French Open came in 1996 with a semi-final loss against Yevgeny Kafelnikov from Russia.

Sampras though doesn’t have a shabby record on the clay court, with a win % over 60. It is though very minimal compared to his over 70 and over 80 win % on hard and grass courts respectively.
