No one's trying to be a journalist man. I'm a tennis fan, writing a tennis opinion based on the background I've had in the game and what I've observed from watching the tour over the past few years. I've just said it straight. My research is my watching of the tour. I trade on the betting markets and I've noticed these common aspects of all the rising youngsters. How many standard sized youngsters are making it through except for Thiem?If I was an editor looking for tennis content, I would not buy this story. Needs some more research, and color, before I am willing to buy into the dubious concept. But I would encourage also the writer to keep at it.
Idle comments while I wait for Shapovalov's first match to complete...
Stories have to be sensationalised. Journalists write what the reader wants to read, which typically is conventional thinking, not alternative. So I am in no way surprised you would say this. A typical reader would look at the top 2 in the world and be blinded by that.
What will paint the colourful reality of what I've said is the years that go past on tour and as Djokovic and Murray gradually decline and the youngsters making the surge up the rankings all have that one trend.
