You left out Safin, Philippoussis, Gonzales, Sampras, Murray, Djokovic and an older, stronger Nadal. Looks like a pretty strong field to me. Far tougher than the names you've mentioned. I think Gonzales alone would have murdered Wilander and Connors let alone Safin. The game has moved on. Only Becker and Edberg and McEnroe would have a chance against the modern players. The rest were just too physically small and weak.
