That might explain why there are no teens in the top 100 (or top 250 by now) but this can't be the reason why players are so fit in there thirties or even fourties!

in an article about French hope Lucas Pouille thanks to Soulage ( http://www.menstennisforums.com/atta...6&d=1360256653 ), I read Fabrice Santoro's opinion : "the physical level is much higher than before. The first four are Martians. One can't reach that physical level at 18. Even 20 years old is early"

Completely wrong. The young players are sorely lacking in talent. All you have to do is watch the young guys play to see that they are all fundamentally terrible.

1. you consider myself as you like, but a forum is not made for personal insults.

2. the topics of young players and old players are two different topics imho, I already stated that opinion in that thread.

3. Haas is an exception, and an exception is not a rule except for people who are very eager at convincing at all costs.

Takes a few years until the youngsters realize they can't make it without juicing. Meanwhile some of the 30 year old's are better than ever.

Will we have any 20 year olds or less in top 100 when Tomic turns 21 in 6 months?

Top 100? Better ask about top 200, since the best 19 yr olds are currently around 250-300

Funny thing that everybody look at top 4 and conclude that physical level is too high. Never mind that guys like Mike Russel are much better ranked than majority of teens, going to turn 35 and close to equaling his career best. At this rate it seems more likely to see a 40 yr old breaking in the top 100 than a 20 year old

The early 2000s seemed to survive it.

Sorry Djokonauts, I am a fan of Federer now. I've learned over the years to appreciate his contribution to the game. No one will ever surpass this man's influence.
Federer ~ The consummate professional. Never retired once in a match. Does not go over the time limit on every point.
