I think ability on big points and ROS are the biggest but it depends on the player.
Yeah, not a single next gen player has a noteworthy return. Mentally they're all pretty frail as well.

I really like Thiem but he broke himself several times at crucial moments and his decision making when making some of these returns has been poor too. I think Thiem will improve his serve but I'm not sure he'll be able to add much to his ROS.

Really bad game from Djokovic there, he should have put a lot of pressure on in that game, allowing Thiem to not exert more mental energy isn't wise when you are serving for the big prize next.

Nadal has maybe 1 more FO and Nole has at most one more Wimbledon. The end is almost there. Last 2 HC slams have been super close.
They have chances, but it’s going to be much harder! And they ain’t getting younger. Novak even been more injury prone than Rafa lately.
Rafa has a chance USO since it’s the perfect HC for him. But he isn’t beating Thiem there. Thiem been sick HC slams 2019. I’ve said watch out for Thiem but very few believed me lol
Zverev, Tsitsipas, Medvedev and Zverev will be all over the place. Djokodal need very lucky draws from now on to make it.

Props to Novak. He is by far the second ever player to own a slam after Nadal at RG.
I might still go with fed at Wimbledon just for the extra finals and very tough competition in most of the deep runs that he had where he ended up losing
He should’ve won the 19 final for sure but his level of play overall is still some of the best there is at that event

Yes ROS has hard to improve. You get worse over time often not better.
Thiem can defo nab a few slams though. He will be a threat at 3/4 majors i think.
