It means if the top 3 can’t be bothered to show up or try, anyone can win.

It’s a glimpse of the future tour

What is surprising is that no one seems to be taking control and dominating the tour. At this stage, you would've expected either Zverev or Tsitsipas or Thiem to show signs that they are the ones everyone should be chasing.

So far, they have disappointed. Zverev is disappointing. He was such a promising player having won WTF against Novak. Thiem had a great run at Indian Wells but he bombs out first round in Miami. Same for tsitsipipas.

They show great promise, make great runs but they don't manage to keep it up like Fed or Nadal or Djokovic.

Is this the lost generation?

Does it mean anything for the rest of the year ? :unsure:
I think on the WTA it is also 13/13.

The depth of field is obvious there, so many good players in WTA at the moment, but a few players are standing out - Kvitova has already made 3 finals I think and obviously Andreescu is really causing a lot of (justifiable) fuss with a mixture of guile, variety and power.
 

Tenez!

I don't understand what the fuss is about.

The stranglehold is still holding for the Slams: 87% since WB '04 (39 of 45).

Regarding Masters, the Big 4 had spoilt us with their inhuman consistency.
From 2005 to FO 2019, they'd won 68% of all Masters (36 of 53), probably higher if you include WTF and back gardens ATP500s (Barcelona, Halle, Beijing). Not normal.

Now we're simply seeing more human players, with peaks and troughs.
Isn't going back to the 90s what a good chunk of the posters wanted anyway?

Look at all the denadalizations! :love: @vive le beau jeu ! ;)

Really though, it's good and all but we're still waiting for the changes in the slams and even most of the Masters. Until that happens, I wouldn't read too much into this.
