Agree with all that. Novak is arguanly the best athlete we have ever seen in terms of movement and longevity. Rafas issue was his greatest asset was his athleticism and stamina. He has the stamina still. The athelticism has gone though which means he likely can only be a threat to novak on clay now where he gets more time
The tennis iq point is where the young players are way down. Alcaraz and sinner especially poor in that regard.
Carlos and Jannik are both very young and have a lot of time on their side. Enjoy watching them play as their shot making is incredible, problem against Novak is that his shot tolerance is so good that he can deal with their bombs and counter with his own. Their ability to deal with his shot making is not yet at the level needed to get on top of him. Advantage Novak. I believe they will both be champs down under eventually but it’s not their time yet.

Problem is when djokovic eventually goes it will be hard now to take sinner and alcaraz that seriously as it will always. Be said that tennis is declining. Sport should evolve. Federer and nadal legitametly beat sampras and agassi at slams in big matches, heralded a new era. Sampras agassi courier legit beat connors mcenroe edberg becker and lendl to take the game on.
Nobody beat federer and nadal of the next generation amd nobody is close to beating djokovic. Wimbledon 2023 now looks a freak rwsult due to the gale force wind. Maybe people should say that to alcaraz to get him back down to earth.
