If you took them from now they'd all do worse than they do in the current era. The same applies to pretty much every single current player. If they had grown up in a different era then it becomes complete guesswork.

Hard to say. Tsonga would be infinetly more dangerous on fast courts, but his ROS would be even more exposed. Berdych would need to up his net game, but has the most potential for success across surfaces. Delpotro is a typical modern one-dimensional player, think he'd actually do best on clay in the 90s. Movement and lack of variety would be more exposed elsewhere IMO.

Delpo's serve/volley game would thrive at Wimbledon.
:lol:

They would be even more irrelevant than they are now.

Tsonga would probably cause some high profile upsets, but that's about it.

Tsonga would do good with his combo of powerful strokes and nice volleys.

Delpo and Berdych would probable be less successful. Delpo plays a combo of percentage shots, good defence and waiting for a chance to unleash his powerful FH. Berdych is a typical ballbasher. Both of them are better at not too fast and higher bouncing surface. It gives them time to prepare their powerful groundstrokes and high bounce enables them to attack the ball downward, ideal for ballbashing and causing no problems for guys of their height. Also, Delpo is pretty bad at passing shots.
