Seriously he is 33 but looks as fast, flexible and gymnasty as ever and that’s not even mentioning the endless stamina.

It’s very odd and makes you wonder.....

Similar to Federer.

Arguably lighter on his feet and more flexible so potentially even better longevity. That's not even taking diet or training into account.

Your comeback king added a lot of muscles around 2009-2010 as if he was going to become a rugby union player, this pretty much ruined his career in the long run.

He went from twink to tree trunk legs in a single off-season :D

He did decline, but still good enough to destroy anyone who isn't named Nadal on clay or Federer on hard/grass. And he will keep doing it for at least 5-6 years from now. While this generation of young players is promising and no doubt they will win slams when the BIG3 retires, they are just not good enough.

If you see the rankings since 2006, all players in whichever position declined or did not sustained their peak rankings for more than a decade. The Big 3 not. Reasons?

He has declined but he's just so much better than everyone else that it doesn't matter

He tries to adjust to his current situation, he is not physically as good as 2011 or 2015(although he is not far off), he improved his volleys and his strategy and became mentally stronger. He surely declined in some aspects, just compare him now to his level in 2011, but just like nadal and federer he refuses to fade away and tries to improve what he can.
