It's natural.
Decline is in the physical. Your mental works for another 30 years, so use it, compensate, adjust, to your declining years, which for most, starts around 35.
So, at 64, you play old fart's tennis. So what? You ARE an old fart.
That's life, you can't fake it.
Injuries are a part of life, and what separates you from IvanLendl. Accept it, you have no choice.

This is pretty much the cycle of life, good points LeeD. I don't agree with much declining starting at 35 though. To me that is awfully young and if a player takes care of himself should still be close to their prime.
