Not that he would not be successful at all. I just don't think he would be as
successfull as he's been on much slower and higher bouncing Wimbledon and US Open of now.
federer's serve, so effective in the slowed down era vs a returning bunch of hewitt, djokovic, murray, davydenko, ferrer, safin, nalbandian, nadal etc would be less effective on the faster, lower bouncing surfaces of the 90s vs an inferior bunch of returners (apart from agassi, chang, kafelnikov )

yeah, that makes sense
