I just noticed that the youngest top 100 (Del Potro and Cilic) are already 20yrs and 7 months.
It never happened that the youngest top 100 player was so "old" (since the ranking exists).

Nishikori (19yo and 4 months) was the only teenager in top 100 until 2 weeks ago. He is now 118th and the highest ranked teenager. Young (162th) and Klein (188th) are the two other ones in top 200.

I also found out that average age of top 100 players is the oldest since at least 1994 (about 26,5yo.):

How would you interpet that ?
players are in better shape and are playing longer...not getting injured as much or coming back from injury faster.
