I think this is a more interesting discussion than most will give it credit for.

With the amount of money some athletes have and their prestige (people willing to finance things for them) like Brady, LeBron, Federer, etc, I do think there are things behind the scenes we can only imagine. I would be more surprised if say Nadal and Roger didn't get stem cell injections for example. And it just goes on from there.

The big reason why tennis players had such a short shelf-life in comparison to other sports is the joint degradation coupled with the high intensity required. If you fix that then 40 is more than achievable as a standard, which puts Novak/Nadal into 2030. So what's to say 50+ is not possible?


I mean, yeah he's an actor but he also didn't have the possibility of the same regenerative therapy in his 30s and 40s. So it's not even comparing him at 72 to Nadal at 52 but moreso comparing a 52 year old Stallone born in 1986 to Nadal at 52.

I would say, we're not at that technological level yet, and unlikely to reach soon...
Amd every golden era should come to an end, standing at a point isn't humanity's nature

Because we’re living in the real world, not people’s fantasies.

It's everywhere. You see women these days who just don't look their age. Part of it is "work", but it's more than that, because this lady still sings amazingly well:


This lady is 6 months older than me, and this show was from around a year ago.


This was from more than 30 years ago.

These are the boomers. What do you think Gen Z is going to look like at age 70? :)

Did you actually play the Stallone clip? DID YOU??? Don't lie to me now.

The whole point of modern medicine is to mitigate the aging process.

If we say 20-30 is physical prime and a guy at age 25 takes steps to slow down the decline, it can happen.

Nah I didn’t. Cba
But lifting weights is completely different to playing sport at a professional level, especially one as physically demanding as tennis

I know it is a joke, but living with someone who has five artificial joints, no. She and I hear all the time that she must be the 6 Million Dollar Woman. All the artificial joints do is allow movement that had been impinged/painful, they don't give any more capability than someone with good joints.

Arthur C. Clarke said people tend to overestimate development in the short run, but underestimate it in the long run. Or was it the other way around...! Personally, I believe the low hanging fruit of longevity has already been picked.

He also said this stuff ...

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
I really, really like Number 2.
