Hard to pick one among those choices, but I would say Muster.

Safin by far (younger than most of them, better, and not that much mileage in his back)

Gonzalez and Moya maybe too....

Burrow

Gonzalez and Moya maybe too....

Safin was an old player before he got old. The knee injury he sustained in 2005 left him a shadow of his former self, at a relatively young age. I'm not even sure if he could crack the top 100 in the event of a comeback.

Even despite his age, Agassi never lost his ability to hit the ball, which made his retirement quite depressing for me.

Moya seems to be fit and healthy, winning on the seniors tour regularly. Maybe he's the one.

None of them would make much of a comeback, they all retired for a reason, unfortunately.

Tiger Tim would show these clowns a thing or two at Queens, no of course I am lying :p

Carlos, as Burrow says has had success on the seniors tour, he would be the one. Not that any of them would do well at all :shrug:, tennis stops for no man, unless your name is Martina Navratalova of course (I kid, I Kid :lol:)

I'm not really sure. Many of them are not suited physically anymore due to age and/or injury, while some of them may have the physical ability left (albeit at least some) but their game doesn't match up with today's field. Like Sampras may still be kind of fit, but does anyone really see him progressing far in any tournament considering the court speeds? He could have some success indoors, and perhaps Cincinnati/US Open would be his best chances. Game wise of course Agassi and Kafelnikov match up the best in today's game. However, Agassi has had physical issues and Kafelnikov got fat. The rest I wouldn't really give them much of a chance except for Safin, but mentally, it isn't worth ever picking him for anything anymore.

Oops, I didn't realize that you wanted Gonzalez as an option.

I'll go for Ljubicic then

Or Henman, he needs to come back and win Wimbledon, that would be cool :)

It's not in the options but definitely Fabrice Santoro is my pick. At their age stamina and power does not make any difference but definitely talent would.

None of them. The game has evolved.
