Sounds reasonable. I don't mind too much, I actually enjoy watching Fed try and keep up with Djoker and Murray. He isn't doing the best job, but he has shown a lot of fight and is still able to make it happen on a good day.
For me, the passing of the torch to the next generation has always felt like a bad birthday. Half a decade or more closer to death, and all that.
