Of course this is possible, but do you think Hewitt, Roddick, Safin, Nalbandian, or Davydenko would be World beaters in any era? I sure as heck dont. There was Nadal but didnt become a major threat on non clay surfaces until mid 2007, Djokovic emerged as a big threat starting in mid 2007, and Murray not until late 2008.
