Wimbledon 2002 actually had the same type of grass as Wimbledon 2001. However, during the Wimbledon 2001, the weather was cool and wet whereas it was hot and dry during Wimbledon 2002. What if the condition was still wet and cool. Who could have been the champion in this case? But anyway, the tournament would be far less of a joke with fat Nalby reaching final on his worst surface only to be thrashed in an even worse manner than Henman (Henman would have beaten anyway if we remove Hewitt). Upper draw: Lleyton Hewitt: he is still a big legit candidate, but now EscudeSchalken/Federer/Ancic could have actualy upset him under this condition. If he reached final he would be more likely to win, and in the lower draws only Sampras might have denied his win but unlikely due to his poor form. Roger Federer: not sure because Ancic would be even more dangerous under this condition, but his game of S&V on both serves would be more effective. Mario Ancic: might have actually taken advantage of his chance and meet Hewitt in the QF. Tim Henman: he would have a nicer run to the SF, and the potential match against Hewitt would be more competitive, but his chance of winning is very low. If he met Fed/Schalken/Ancic/Escude (Fed and Ancic I think was not ready at that time), he would bag his first and only Slam final. In the final, he would win if he met someone like fat Nalby. But Sampras/Agassi/Krajicek/Phillippoussis? NOPE. Feliciano Lopez: could have beaten Sa in 4R to reach QF, but likely to lose to Henman. Lower draw: Rusedski: likely to actually beat Malisse to reach QF to face Agassi/Phillippoussis/Krajicek. I would not pick him in the QF because he was a worse grasscourter than any of them. Malisse: if he actually beat Rusedski, he would lose to Agassi/Phillippoussis and even Krajicek (on this condition I would pick Krajicek over Malisse). Kafelnikov: if he managed to scrap to QF, he would be gunned down there. Agassi/Phillippoussis/Krajicek: Hardest to predict. If Agassi beat Srichaphan in 2R, he would beat Krajicek in 3R (but the match is likely to be tough), but is more likely to lose to Phillippoussis, but the lost would be similar to their 2003 match. If Krajicek reached 4R, the match would be a toss up like in real life but I would lean towards Krajicek, who led h2h over Mark. Sampras: would likely to pull off a victory against Bastl, and if so he would reach SF thanks to an easy draw (the only other guy who might potentially upset him was Wayne Arthur) to wait for Krajicek/Agassi/Phillippoussis/Rusedski. I think if he meet Richard or Mark he would lose, but he would beat Agassi.
