I would even say that in 2002-2006 there was a higher number of dangerous players than today.
David Ferrer is a very good player, I think he would have won a slam or two if he was playing in his prime in 2002. And I would not say that 2002-2006 was weak, more like 2000-2003. From 2004-2006, Federer was extremely dominant.
