Could possibly be Federer, I can see him still being top 20 at 34, but bet he'll retire. Other 3 all have grinding styles, Nadal will be gone for sure, Murray and Djokovic will be close but Murray is less flexible and runs more so I'd go with Djokovic, who is the best currently anyways.

What's wrong with saying Murray will last the longest? Have you seen Djokovic play? He puts far more stress on his body than Andy does. Same goes for Nadal. Federer will be far too old to be above Andy in 2016, so that leaves Andy as the highest ranked of the Big 4 then. What's wrong with that? Or are you just randomly replying to me with a sarcastic remark because it's me? How nice of you.
I like your posts.

Don't get me wrong, I do like Andy and I do think he'll be up there somewhere, around TOP 10 - 15, but still below Novak, despite Novak's tennis being more physically demanding than Andy's. I think Rafa and Roger will be retired by then.

Anyway, the thing is - I like how all of your predictions (at least most of them) turn out to be wrong. I mean, you believe Murray is the best player out there and that it's just a matter of time he wins a GS and starts dominating the Tour. It's been going on for like last three years. Although that's fine, supporting your favorite player and hoping for the best is OK but you need to be more objective. Current standings don't allow to underestimate Djokovic and Nadal and say Murray is better than the two of them. 'Cause he's not. Maybe one day...

Also, you don't have to like them (Rafa and Nole) but you must admit they're way better than the rest. I don't like Fed but, of course, I'll always say he's the GOAT in achievements and probably the most talented guy ever to play the game.

One more thing, you seem to be way too quarrelsome for someone of your age. Take it easy sometimes, you make people dislike Andy with your posts. But - what the heck - it may just be my impression...

Anyway...

Murray's game is physically extremely demanding, his whole manner of movement relies on supreme energy and very jarring and sudden stops and starts, with immediate push offs from one direction to another. He doesn't have the ease and elasticity of movement of Djokovic and I don't think his style lends itself to longevity at all.

Federer at 30 is atleast as good as Agassi at 30, Federer would also beat Clement in the AO final this year if he got such an oppurtunity.

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

Yes, Murray is the ultimate pusher, his game is just to "out-consistency" his opponents and against strong opposition he has to do a LOT of running.

No chance for Fedal. So it's between Murray and Nole. I'm leaning more towards Murray, maybe it's only because he hasn't won a slam yet, so I see him peaking later. Who knows.
