So did Agassi and Sampras at similar ages, they're champs, they're not going to say I'm past my best.

Laver won a Calendar Grand Slam at the age of 31, Agassi won 5 slams at the age of 29+ and reached a USO final at the age of 35, Rosewall and Pancho also by all accounts had an amazing longevity etc.

It's not a knock on Fed, he's playing in what is probably the most grueling era ever but he didn't age as well as those guys did.
