    I have said this a few times, but when Djokovic finally is dethroned as the worlds heavyweight champion, that is when the curtain will ultimately come down on the spectacular period that pretty much began at TMC 2003, when Federer truly arrived and ushered in this era, it will end when Djokovic's time as the very best comes to an end. I do feel once this unique period in tennis is over, things will go back to the way they were, and younger players will start making their strides.

    I'd be very surprised if there aren't a lot of young finalists in a few years. There simply aren't the players to hold them off. Nishikori, Cilic and Del Potro are perenially injury prone, Tomic is too slow, which leaves Raonic and Jack Sock as the two players to stop the young brigade. If those guys hold off young players, they should simply abolish tennis as a professional sport.
