I'm going to vote no, for the simple reason that he has beaten absolutely nobody over the past 5 years or more.
The only person to challenge him has beaten the pants off of him for a good two years running, and the only reason he won the French was because he wasn't playing against that person.
I don't like Pete Sampras, but at least you can say he had to play other guys who had won majors.
I can't remember there ever being a time where the tennis field had such thin talent.
Pete was my favorite, and I think in his prime he'd beat Roger. I think Agassi in his prime would have given Roger a good run.
