ummmmm, I don't recall anyone seriously claiming Federer was "geriatric" at 26, but some people think he was already past his peak. These things are quite complicated because each player is an individual! Lleyton Hewitt was practically a spent force by 26. Meanwhile Lendl peaked at around that age. Borg and Mcenroe were burnt out (one retired, the other took a year off and never won an another Major). It turns out people are different!Interesting some posters who have been claiming for more than a decade that Federer was a geriatric at the age of 26 and that's why he lost to Nadal in Winby 2008 are now claiming that Thiem is at his physical peak at 27.
He has a grass court title, which Stan will never have, and he's beaten the grass GOAT on grass, which Stan also will never do.Thiem can start bragging when he beat the Big3 on grass in BO5, which he has not done.
Apparent you didn't my thread. I said BO5 (as Best of Five). No one cares about those Best of 3 tournaments. What is Thiem's records against the Big 3 in Grandslam finals again?He has a grass court title, which Stan will never have, and he's beaten the grass GOAT on grass, which Stan also will never do.
Neither are competent grass court players, it's not even worth discussing.
