Regarding just the question which says HC only. Federer and Serena are my picks.
But if I was to go surface by surface (men only), I would say something like this:
Fast grass: Sampras
Slow grass: Federer
Slow HC: i.e (since they turned the AO blue, I would say that Miami and Canada have always been pretty slow as well) Djokovic
Medium to fast HC: Federer
Indoor HC: McEnroe
Please keep in mind that I'm trying not to pick 2 or 3 players for each surface because I hate that, and I think it totally takes away from the purpose of the question.
