Well yeah but I think you're simplifying it a bit... They were all top juniors and great prospects. There are simply things that are tough to pick up in sports when you get older. Granted there are some players who break the top100 later on in their career such as Gicquel, but he broke the top1000 in 1999, when he was 22.
Not saying you're facing an impossible task, I mean anything is theoretically possible
There it is
If anything, I'd compare myself to Tilden, save for the weird stuff. Tilden was a club hacker for years, couldn't even make his college team. He was a nobody at 22. 4 years later he was #1 in the world

Although I'm a real clay player, doubt you have seen a lot of clay courts in your life
. Same could be said about me when we're talking about hardcourts, though.
Hell yeah man. I've seen plenty of clay courts in my life, in fact I play as much on clay as I do on hard courts, if not more so. The tourney last weekend was clay. Green clay, though, American clay
I've played on red clay a few times though
