Thanks for the response. I try to made it as evenly matched as I could for the players. Looks like there's quite a few 5 setters from your picks which is good from my behalf. :yeah:

would be an amazing match, guessing Nadal in 5 with Murray choking a set.
Djokovic in 4
Gonzalez in 4
Nadal in 4
Federer in 4/5 (one of those where Roger should have finished it in 3
Djokovic in 3/4
Hewitt in 4
Ferrer in 5
Djokovic in 4
Nadal in 5, would've been an epic match though.
Hewitt v Djokovic would be too hard to predict
Safin in 5

Australian Open 2011 Murray vs Australian Open 2014 Nadal - I don't think that Andy was playing great tennis, neither Nadal but you have to play great to beat Nadal. Of course I count the whole tournament performance except the final, which was a farce from the second set. So Nadal in 4 max.

Wimbledon 2008 Safin vs Wimbledon 2013 Djokovic - Marat played very well at Wimbledon that year and on fresh grass I'd fancy his chances to take it in the fourth or fifth set, but the winner would be Djokovic, he was actually playing quite well that tournament.

Australian Open 2007 Gonzalez vs Australian Open 2006 Nalbandian - They've played in 2005 at AO and Nalby was the superior player, and their H2H is also better for Nalby, but Gonzo in 2007 was something special. Nalby would've had the advantage as Roger had, creating good angles to Gonzo's bh and then finish the point to the open fh side, but Gonzo was hammering everything from the fh and even his bh wasn't bad, especially dtl. Someone in 5, I'm more inclined to Gonzo considering what happened to Nalby in the fifth against Bag in 2006.

Wimbledon 2003 Roddick vs Wimbledon 2010 Nadal - Very good one, Andy was a bomber in these times, serve and fh combo at his best, only problem was his bh. Nadal had a problem as usual on the fast grass, but then he hammered the field with a great performance especially against Soderking. 1st week Roddick, 2nd week Nadal.

Roland Garros 2011 Federer vs Roland Garros 2015 Nadal - Different balls, which changed RG into faster tournament. Fed in 2011 lost to Nadal because of Nadal's exceptional defense, he made Fed to play one more shot, but this ability Nadal in 2015 lost heavily. Fed was at his very best in that tournament and I think he would've won in 4 with the 2011 balls, but lost to Nadal in 2015, because Nadal always plays much better against Fed than against anyone else.

Roland Garros 2004 Coria vs Roland Garros 2015 Djokovic - Djokovic, Coria is the kind of player that Djokovic likes to play against. His return would've crashed Coria and his own defense was very good as well. But nonetheless I'd love to see this match.

US Open 2001 Hewitt vs US Open 2014 Cilic - Cilic was unstoppable, he's normally very good on return, but his serve was Ivanisevic-like. His power would've been to match to handle for Lleyton's counterpunching in the beginning, but on the other hand Lleyton loved to play these kind of players, so with the match being longer, he would've had more and more chances.

Roland Garros 2015 Murray vs Roland Garros 2013 Ferrer - Clayray 3.0 def Ferrer in 5 sets, unwatchable.

Australian Open 2010 Djokovic vs Australian Open 2015 Nadal - Allergy def Appendicitis.

US Open 2006 Federer vs US Open 2013 Nadal - The one that everyone would love to see, Fed against Rafa at US Open. I know that Fed lost to Nadal in Dubai 2006, but still, it wasn't a slam. Nadal's more offensive game would make some trouble to Roger, but watch that Cinci match and tell what should stop Fed from beating Nadal in similar conditions. This isn't AO or RG where Nadal can everything defend with his defense, plus Fed's fh was lethal every year at US Open till 2012. Their matches are decided with Nadal being the better defender, which makes Fed to turn into UE machine, but Nadal in 2013 was very good offensive-wise as well. However, he lost a bit of defense as well in 2013, so Fed in 4 or 5 for me, too much to handle for Nadal, but tennis would've won with the rallies.

Wimbledon 2002 Hewitt vs Wimbledon 2014 Djokovic - Remember Tomic match against Djokovic in 2011? Similar problems for him, Lleyton is great player with mixing the pace, which Novak hates. He was very solid from the baseline too, only problem was as usual the serve. Djokovic in 5 with very big problems.

US Open 2000 Safin vs US Open 2009 Del Potro - US Open bombarded, big crater in the Ashe stadium. Marat's match against Pete was demolition, and although Del Pony is a completely different player, the outcome would've been Marat in 4. He was nearly perfect.

More disrespect for No1e hidden in here. No1e wins all his matches mentioned here in 3. It is an insult to even ask any of those.

Get used to it. Chico contributes nothing but pathetic ass licking of his idol in every thread.

On topic:
Nadal in 5
Safin in 4
Gonzalez in 4
Nadal in 5 (Roddick first week though, and this would be different if it was 2004 A Rod)
Federer in 4 (like others have said, depends on the balls, and there's still the chance 2011 Fed would mess up even against 2015 Nadal)
Djokovic in 5 (can't trust Coria after what he did against Gaudio)
Hewitt in 4 (Cilic last year was a beast but Hewitt was absolutely on fire in 2001, let's not forget what he did to Sampras)
Murray in 5 (most unwatchable matchup in tennis)
Djokovic in 3
Federer in 4 or Nadal if it goes to 5
Hewitt in 4
Safin in 5
