Sure, with no young players and no competition from players from their generations

Yes, but there are reasons for that. A short list:

First: Court homogenization. Too slow courts.
Even Paris-Bercy and Wimbledon are relatively slow nowadays.

Second: Balls. Heavy balls, not so fast as in years before.

Third: Athletisism. Both are fantastic athletes.

Fourth: Fitness & condition. They can play for 4 or 5 hours like Murray, Wawrinka or other players. The new generation is in general more fit.

Fifth: Defense. Defensive shots, passing shots, returns.
They can do all those shots so well that the offensive player won't have much success and can't play his tennis for more than 2 sets.

Sixth: Best of five sets.
Everything is different with Best-of-three sets.


So, both are incredible.
Fantastic tennis players.
Fantastic in defensive, the two best players of all time in terms of defense.



But with Best-of-3 on a fast hard court (or grass court) everything could be different.


Or Blue Clay Court.

Re: nole and nadal took tennis to another dimension????

maybe it`s true that slow courts is a very important point for this new kind of tennis , the tennis in the future will be like this???? run and very long rallys from the baseline without beatiful points or technique???

I hope no

Yes, they have. The 6 hour final at AO was such a treat. Let us hope they treat us to an 8 hour gladiatorial battle at RG.
