Are you implying that they are of the same calibre as Nadal? Age matters, but Nadal is just head and shoulders above the young guns right now, I reckon it'd be at least 2016 before he loses to one of them (if we go by the two year cycle, where Nadal plays well one year and crap the next).

Have any of those mugs even won a Masters? None of them are even half as good as Murray, let alone as good as Nadal or Djokovic.

In fact, from the generation born after 1988, only Delpotro has more than a single win against him (H2H 8-4 in favor of Nadal)--Cilic and Dolgopolov are probably the only players from that group age who have one win against Nadal..
* I actualy forgot from that list of young generation performance against Nadal is MTF's Great Hope, the Real #8, the man in-whose-racket their matches outcome lie.. Ernest Gulbis is a whooping 0-7

Re: When will Nadal lose to a player born in the 90s, and who will it be?

Nishikori (and that's a maybe as he has shown the game but not the stamina to beat Endurancedal) if he can stay healthy and reach far enough to play against Nadal. There is a reason why people think the younger generation is absolutely hopeless. We might need to start looking at players born after 1995 to beat him.

Re: When will Nadal lose to a player born in the 90s, and who will it be?

Federer already losed to Nishkori 2 times in a row, and you should ask when can he beat Nishkori again?

Stakhovsky,Delbonis,Gulbis,Nishikori,Kyrgios,Monfi ls,Cilic,Seppi more and more people are not afraid of Federer the "paper tiger".
03-07 is the weakest era for tennis

The one who lose to rafa 9 times and Novak 8 times in grand slam is the goat
Wilander: Federer played during the weakest era ever.
John McEnroe: Rafael Nadal is the best ever, even with a first-round Wimbledon loss
Agassi: Rafael Nadal as the best player in the history of tennis, ahead of Roger Federer.
Pete Sampras: Rafael Nadal Can Pass Federer and become the GOAT

Re: When will Nadal lose to a player born in the 90s, and who will it be?

The only guy I have faith in from the new generation is Thiem and he is only 20.

The guys born around 1990 are a lost generation. They are old enough already that they have proven they aren't going to become great players.

All they can hope to do is vulture some wins against top players once they have gotten old (like Nishikori against Federer) or vulture some slams once a vacuum at the top is created.

I feel the same way also, starting to lose my faith in guys who are born around 1990. I believe in Thiem!!

Favorite players: Nieminen, Dolgopolov, Del Potro, Fognini, J.Sousa, Dreddy , Monfils, Wawrinka, Goffin, Tomic, Nishikori, Kyrgios
