I really believe that a champ would be a champ in any era, because they are able to maximize their talents whatever talents are.
That's essentially my view with some minor exceptions. I think for example Lew Hoad would be exceptional strong in any era but he do a lot of weight training in the 1950's. You would read stories about what Hoad was able to do because of his great strength on and off the court.
