Bro, the question is not if Federer will surpass the great Pete Sampras`record of 14 grand slam titles but by how much? Pete indeed was a great champion , and more than that it was the way he conducted himself on court which earned him respect from everyone much like Roger Federer commands these days.

As for the awards I think Michael Phelps is the real dark horse.
Lastly A little about Federer from those who know a thing or two about tennis for your eyes only , sub7er
