Connors could play and win into his late 30s because the game was less explosive, physical and dare I say professional then. Federer is doing a great job to be in the top group at 31 but by 33 I would think he'll drop off the pace. It's just too physically demanding now. By the way look at the old footage of Laver waddling around with a decent pot belly at the end of his career and still knocking off big wins. Just would not happen now.
