Opinion: When the changing of the guard occurs in the 2020's there will be a renaissance in tennis.

For fans, i believe that Tennis us about watching great, exciting matches. That is why Federer is so popular and Djoker is not. Fed, even as he loses, is exciting to watch.

Of the up and comers, right now, only a few are exciting. Thiem, Shapo, Tsits, maybe Med and Sinner. The servbots and the baseline bangers just don't get people drawn into the matches. Let's hope the youngers add more variety and strategy.

More like:
Pete - top o' his class
Novak v Rafa v Fed fighting for top, with Fed likely ending as Bronze medalist overlooked by everyone when all is said and done, like the beans&cheese burrito you order ONLY when chicken and beef are unavailable.
Alexander Zverev probably has more success on clay than Pete.

That is all you need to know .. LMAO

I think personality conflicts are important too, for the drama. That's why Kyrgios is box office and Tsits versus Med brings in people. Personally I support racquet smashing and some shenanigans going on. I like to hear Fabio run off at the mouth from time to time and Andy Murray's personality is missed. The big three are all hard working, professional, sportsmanlike but they are boring, not their games but them. I agree about Fed though, he is a great artist and fun to watch. Djokovic not so much and Nadal kind of in the middle.
