After careful research in tothe career of Federer.. Federers' game is better more suited to the 90's style of play, where baseline tennis was overtaking serve and volley tennis of the 80's... Federer and nadal and Djokovic woudl have THIRVED in the 90's.

90's Tennis

Sampras, Agassi, Courier, Chang, Wheaton, Martin and Ivanisevic, Berasetugi, Brugera, Muster, Kaflenkov, Stich, Kriajeck, Enquist, Rios, Henman, Ferriera, Rusedski, Rafter, Kucera, Rosset, Medvedev, Woodbridge, Phillpousis

80's Tennis

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic would have been burried and burned by the overwhelmingly fast , slick courts and fast serve and volley tennis of this Golden Era of Tennis....I do not se Federer "hanging with the Big Boys of the 80's:

Connors, Borg, McEnroe, Lendl, Wilander, Mecir, Gerulitis, Becker, Edberg, Gilbert, Forget, Noah, Cash, Jarryd, Curren, Krickstein, Mayotte, Leconte, Vilas, Clerc, Pernfors
Borg is the 80s player? He barely plays the 80s. Becker also played in best in the 90s. IMO, Dealing with the likes of Sampras, Agassi, Courier, Becker, Krajicek, Ivanisevic, is definitely tougher than dealing with Clerc, Pernfors, Gilbert, and the likes....
