    I know this ends up being complete "nonsense" to some posters but I'd like to see what TT old timers would say on the subject.

    If you could rewind back to 2011 and have everything leading up to be the same but Djokovic, Nadal , Federer, Murray had to play on these surfaces instead who would be the winners (which can include anyone from the men's field)?

    Australian Open - Indoor Carpet
    French Open - Indoor Wood
    Wimbledon - Medium speed Grass with no Centre Court roof
    US Open - Montreal speed Hard Court

    LOL in such a scenario, the Wawrinkas, Del Potros, Berdychs, Tsonga, even Nishikori would stand a chance of upsetting the greats and lifting one slam.

    Indoor wood... Now that's a surface I'd like to try. It would probably be Murray there but I think Raonic and Isner would be in the final of that FO and play a match that literally would never end.
