Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

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

instinctively I would say something like that : Murray ageing better than Djokovic ageing better than Nadal, for the reasons you say, and also because Murray maybe loves tennis more and has a steadier attitude to it than Djokovic imo (just a feeling like Ash86's) and has more variety and a better first serve.

But overall I think Djokovic and Murray can last very long on top considering the poor younger generations.

it's not true (considering "defensive" means "grinders" in this forum), if you look at the lower ranked players who age well, many of them are rather grinders (Russell, Ramirez-Hidalgo, Schuettler, Eschauer or Luczak in the past ...) but having a little bit variety also helps to adapt (see Santoro or even Schuettler and others).

Djokovic, he only grinds down opponents late in tournaments. He can blow most players off the court.

Nadal and Murray literally grind down each and every opponent, they will burn out earlier and might have problems post retirement too. Their hardcourt grindfests aren't doing any favors to their knees and joints for sure.
