I agree with all of that and would add that unlike FB and basketball


players where extreme athleticism, speed, and/or strength are needed and they typically start to go away in their 30's, tennis players if they train and eat right, but by far most importantly can still hit the tennis ball better than the other guy, they can stay at the top well into their 30's. In the old days, guys did not stay as fit or eat right and they tended to get a little flabby and slower in their 30's. Tennis is different in that if you just have a big enough serve, like Isner and Anderson do, and hold serve 90% + of the time that can be enough to be a top 20 player.
