    Which generation was weaker, Djokodal's or Federer's?

    The second half of 2016 until Wimbledon 2018 was a dramatic decline in form for Novak.

    Who thinks the ATP World Tour Finals should have stayed in London?

    I haven't been to the WTF when it was elsewhere, but when I went to the O2 Arena in 2014 it was a phenomenal experience. I hope it comes back one day.

    Which generation was weaker, Djokodal's or Federer's?

    When Federer declined there was a talented bunch of youngsters ready to overtake him. When Djokovic declined... the old guys came back and dominated for 18 months.

    Is currently Medvedev level hogher than all of Murray's past Aus open campaigns?

    But, but I thought 04-07 was the weak era??

    When Federer's wheels started to fall off in 2008 there was a next gen ready and waiting to overtake him, and the previous generation had long been beaten into retirement by him and his peers.
