Rising "Next Gen" Thiem and Goffin are last young guns standing of any kind.



True "Next Gen" has many years of training to come.



...



Not only can Novak, Andy and Stan assess the state of affairs and lick their chops, but also Gasquet and others who have the patience, fitness and tenacity to stick around. Suddenly you think, at the Slams where Novak slips, guys like Gasquet and Monfils can legitimately contend.



Ramos said after dispatching Raonic: "This year I don't think I'm playing any better. I don't know what happened..."

Wait this isn't an "endless era debate" and is specifically about the state of affairs with respect to age in May 2016.

Mods, what gives?

lol I love when you show your ignorance openly like this. Roddick, Hewitt, Davydenko and Safin had great slam showings (google them if you want stats you lazy mug), Gonzo reached a final destroying everything in his way including Nadal, Ljubicic only peaked in 2006, Blake wasn't great in slams, Nalbandian had 3 SFs and 4 QFs I think. Was there anything else?

Let's not even get into guys you didn't mention like Safin & Davydenko lel. Scurry along child.
This.
Obviously noletrolls never watched the devastating tennis that Blake, Gonzales etc unleashed when they were at their peak. They'll make a mincemeat of raonic, nishikori etc.

Even a 30 yo gasquet is now enough to make a mincemeat of prime Nishikori.

tennisfan3 And in Gasquet's case, he is a top player. So not even that big of an upset, especially playing in front of his home fans.

Gasquet is also just 11 months older than Murray, so not exactly "Fed era".

tennisfan3 For Federer's era that would be called depth of competition by the Fedtards. After all, that is the reason being given why top players were so frequently beaten by random lower ranked players...

Re: These days, why retire?

Another often criticised almost 30 yo young hopeful from Fed's era, Richard Gasquet, has just butchered a member of Generation Useless, Kei Nishikori.

Can't wait for noeltards to spin this and try to make generation useless look good.
