Well, this is time that is lacking fresh talent.
Just compare it with the "Golden Age of Tennis" (1987-1996) where I have some stats about the semi-finalists' age in the first years:

FO 1988: Graf 18, Zvereva 17, Sabatini 18, Provis 18.

FO 1989: ASV 17, Graf 19, MJ Fernandez 17, Seles 15.

FO 1990: Seles 16, Graf 20, Capriati 14, Novotna 21.
USO 1990: Sabatini 20, Graf 20, MJ Fernandez 19, ASV 18.

AO 1991: Seles 17, Novotna 22, MJ Fernandez 19, ASV 19.
FO 1991: Seles 17, ASV 19, Sabatini 21, Graf 21.
Wim 1991: Graf 22, Sabatini 21, MJ Fernandez 19, Capriati 15.

Talent in abundance ....

And today?
Over-the-hill players like Davenport, Capriati, Pierce still with good chances,
only 2 teenagers (with no chance to win a slam) among the last 16 .....

:(
