Do you know why?
Because the fact is he's has greater competition than any past generations, and that's just about in every sports. The old-timers are saying the opposite but deep down they know it isn't true. They hated the when experts/ex-players/general fans keep mentioned about tennis played at a higher level, more depth, more talented players, more quality....
