DK is already close to his prime physically ,so he has a certain amount of time to capitalize when he's still in peak,physically.. tennis is not like golf .. the body is more of important factor.. most(most) men slow down at around 30.. so do the math.. not everyone are the same.. guys like Steve Johnson,Sock and Fratangelo are not built like DK.. DK had bulging muscles and a full 6 pack at 15.. S.Johnson was almost on the fat side before going to USC.. DK ready ,he just needs pro match experience ..
Actually, most pros will tell you they peak physically much later, 24-25. And the grind of the tour, with 25+ tournaments and constant travel, is very hard on the body, much worse than college tennis.
