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.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
