Today 25 is young. Just think we have "boys" winning slams regularly at 36, impossible 20-30 years ago, as it will be vary rare from now on to win a slam before say....23-24. Look at Zvev, he is just not built enough to taky 7 BO5 matches in a row.
The average peak age today has shifted from 18-23 to 25-30. And today after 30, you still improve tecnically.
Just one guy won at 36...and he won his first at 21 which isn't that old. There was a time in the 80s when 17-18 was a normal age and that's gone, but overall I don't think the ages have gone up by that much.

I hope I’m wrong. But I get this bad feeling the clock strikes 12 on Marco, he melts down (possibly epically - broken racquets and profanity) and turns back into a Challenger Lifer.

Thiem 6-1 6-3 6-1.

Thiem wins but it's going to be a long drawn out struggle, not too dissimilar to Soderling's RG SFs.

This looks like it will be an interesting match. Whoever wins, they will make worthy Roland Garros runner-up.

Jim C very smart guy. He analyzes it well. Thiem appears to be miss firing. Nerves or the italian playing with passion?
This is Dom's match to lose, but he may well .

Have a very strange feeling that Marco is winning this one and from what I have seen he might not be as big a challenge to Nadal as Them ,he still would be a challenge if he keeps himself together.

I have the feeling that IF Cecchinato wins he could be the better finalist with his all-or-nothing attitude compared to Thiem who could be a nervous wreck.

Thiem is finally using the court geometry much better, enough with the ball bashing.

Smart S&V from dom.. hes a smart player, has all the tools + very fit

he just has such big swings, maybe makes things hard to reproduce again and again

im only a few games in, good so far

Italians serve is weaker. He will have to play outve his mind i think to hide that. Thiem looking good..

On a side note. Cuevas has only made the 3rd round at RG? What?

So tired of these mugs goating against Djokovic but then falls off a cliff. We should be watching a bo5 match between Djoko-Thiem now.
