Djokovic was 23 when he had his god mode 2011 season. Since then he has actually declined a bit. Not noticeably, but it should become noticeable soon. Dimitrov, Nishikori, and Raonic are all 23-24. They only have a few years left before they are past their best. They aren't going to get much better. Dolgopolov and Gulbis are both 25.

He could beat Nadal on a quick court low bouncing, in that scenario Thiem won't be so troubled in the backhand and his shots will be more penetrating. I would see this happening in late 2015 indoor courts or perhaps 2016 on the grass or Indoors.

This thread is indeed the best summation of the lack of an even symbolic minor breakthrough for the young generation (let alone major one)..That no player as high as high as 24 in age has yet to beat the world #1 in a single the ATP tour match (only Dimitrov beat #2 Djokovic as far as i can remember) tells the whole story about how far behind the curve this generation is without even delving into its overall quality..Nobody is asking them to beat Djokovic/Nadal on the way to a Slam win just yet but at least those guys should be from time to time sneaking on Rafole in the M1000s and 500s..We are not there yet..

Such a good point. Federer, Nadal and Djojovic all played their best stuff in their early 20s. Infact how many slams had Fed and Nadal won by the time they were Dimitrov's age? Guessing it must be half a dozen each at least.

They are/were still the best players in the world in their late 20s but that's just because they are so damn good.

So Is the current generation of young to mid 20 somethings really hopeless or are Federer, Nadal and Djokovic just so good that they will forever stand out as being better than future generations?

Current level roanic is his biggest threat. Even on clay. Nadal is most vulnerable to players who hits through the ball. Plus roanic has made the biggest improvement as we've witnessed.
