Which Oldy will have the best career from now on?

These are the players 32 years of age and over. Some of them have had a resurgence in 2012. So which ones will have the best success before they hang up their racket?

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Which Oldy will have the best career from now on?

It's definitely going to be Haas, health permitting.

Stepanek has lost much of the athleticism which he once had and consequently his ability in singles has diminished significantly.

I sometimes wonder why Malisse i still playing. It goes without saying that he no longer has the stamina required to compete daily, but he's still pretty nimble on his feet and his ball striking ability is still excellent. Unfortunately for him, it's obvious that mental strength and fitness are absolutely crucial in this day and age and he has neither of these straits. I still thoroughly enjoy watching him and sometimes even more so because of these weaknesses, in a funny sort of way.

Re: Which Oldy will have the best career from now on?

Iron Mike Russell is yet to peak. Next year he will win some MM tournament and the year thereafter he will reach SF in Usopen miracle run, at 38-40 he will dominate the tour against the mug generation of Tomic and Harrison.

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

32 is such a random number? Why didn't you go with players over 30 ?
