Old Balls > New Balls.

Interesting to see that the last year like this was 1979, which had McEnroe, Connors, Lendl, Borg, Wilander and Vilas, for 6 4x slam winners.

Best era in Tennis history.

Looks like Old man Fed wants to hang around for awhile longer too, and take a run at the top 5 and top 10 lists.

Unexpected. They keep saying that in the last 10 years it's been harder than ever for teenagers and other young guns to break into the top levels, since fitness is more important than ever. But based on this, it's probably just the emergence of teenage breakout champions (like Becker, back in the day) that's been curtailed. The average age of top 10 players hasn't changed much.
