Re: Average age of top 10 (year-end ranking)

Old Balls > New Balls.

Interesting to see that the last year like this was 1979, which had McEnroe, Connors, Lendl, Borg, Wilander and Vilas, for 6 4x slam winners.

Best era in Tennis history.

Looks like Old man Fed wants to hang around for awhile longer too, and take a run at the top 5 and top 10 lists.

Unexpected. They keep saying that in the last 10 years it's been harder than ever for teenagers and other young guns to break into the top levels, since fitness is more important than ever. But based on this, it's probably just the emergence of teenage breakout champions (like Becker, back in the day) that's been curtailed. The average age of top 10 players hasn't changed much.

Yes, I mean usually guys like Berdych or Raonic have been part of the Top 10, or even a regular Lendl or Roger. Note: I mean Lendl and Roger entered the Top 10 in a more "normal age" 20-21

But the 'distortion' was made for those who made also huge history by having a super early breakthrough, call it Becker, Borg, Mc Enroe, Chang, Agassi, or a bit more recent with Hewitt (youngest #1) Nadal, Murray and Djokovic. And it is quite logical that those big name stayed for a veeeery long time. Connors was -with the exception of 1 week- a top 10 until almost 37! Agassi later and now Roger and David F. are taking that average up. Yes, it is a bit sad for the likes of Berdych, Raonic or Nishikori or even Del Potro to have emerged by almost the same time the best player ever, the best ever on clay, Nole (who has some more room to make history) and Andy.

2016  RU: Leon CH

TT Doubles: 62 (High 62 Apr 18-2016) Finals: 5-12
2012 (2-3)W: Villa Allende CH; Guayaquil CH (w/SamR03A)
2013 (2-2)W: Mons CH (w/Renaud); Yeongwol CH (w/cserkinho) 
2014 (0-2) // 2015 (0-3)
2016 (1-2)W: Buenos Aires CH (w/raft89)

The argument is a fallacy, completely unrelated to reality. Djokovic, Nadal, Murray, Delpo all came out storming the tour as teenagers.

The avarage age of top 10 has changed drastically since 2009 (when thread opened) because the next generation sucks. No two ways around it, it got nothing to do with fitness and other bullsh*t. They are just bad, so this generation can dominate forever. Now a new generation is appearing however that might be able to challenge the old guys. I expect Kyrgios and Coric to be in top 10 within 1 year.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
