People keep saying that but the evidence is there that it's a 25-to-29-year-old man's game right now.

Djokovic, Murray and Nadal still have 4-5 years at the top at least as well as Delpo (injuries though) so there's time yet for a new generation.

Yeah, times have changed quickly and talented teens and guys in their early 20s need to persevere down in the lower regions of the game much longer than before, and so those at the top of the game are much older than before, but still.. 25-29 year olds are still young men. Sports like Tennis are designed for people in their youthful physical peak. There aren't many occupations where you gotta start thinking about moving onto your next stage in life at around 30, because you're now too old for your current job.

As we are now, I'd agree it makes sense to call those 25 and below, young guns.

Blame it on Djokovic and his gluten free diet.

ATP please... desperately trying to fuel a non existent hype wagon. Sure Dimitrov can hit a few balls over the net and Milo's forehand has improved slightly, but NONE of the young guns have proved themselves worthy of consistent sub top 10 play. Until they do... lets just shhh ATP...

I know the ATP is on suicide watch until the next "big thing" materialises ...but they just need to accept it isn't going to happen for quite some time.
