I keep the faith they'll be a decent generation coming through, maybe only because the thought of Djokovic v Nadal for another 7 years makes me want to stop watching tennis.
I am not saying they wont be Federer/Nadal level, what I am saying is that they wont reach Del Potro's level.

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

Golden age, I say, regardless of who you root for. More guys challenging for the biggest prizes is GOOD for the game.
No way. The other five yes; Tsonga and Berdych are guys who can win one Slam max if they get hot for a few matches, they are dangerous outsiders. They have too many weaknesses to be considered top contenders on a regular basis.

Tsonga and Berdych are not Slam contenders any more than they have been before. Delpo seems to be making proress, which is good, but let´s not get carried away. He made to the semifinals of a tournament of best-of-three matches. That´s still far from being a Slam contender.
