About the same, what slams he would have lost in his peak years he would have made up for at the age of say 29-31, I don't think any of the big 4 will play on the same level as Fed is at that age (if they would be at all still playing) and the rest of the field (especially the young guns which are laughable) is pretty lacking.

He would also have a much better chance of winning more than one FO given the chance of Novak landing in Nadal's half and beating him before the final and my personal belief that say 29 year old Fed who showed up in 2011 FO would have a much better chance of beating 29 year old Nadal than in of their other FO encounters.

Sure, it hurts, I know.
