Once again, this only proves that the Williams/Belgiana plus Sharapova generation is stronger than the youngsters now

Today's tennis is for women, not for girls anymore. With the exception of Maria Sharapova, the stronger, more mature women are the ones dominating the game. Little girls can't compete with the power.

Average Age of Grand Slam Champions in the 90’s: 21.6

Average Age of Grand Slam Champions in the 2000-2009: 22.9

I am pretty certain the average age of Grand Slam Champions in the years 2010 to 2019 will be way up, most likely somewhere between 25 and 27. The era of teenage champions is long gone, whereas I think we will be seeing quite a number of 30 something champions in the next decade, something that hasn't happened since 1990 and something that has been very rare throughout the open era and dare I say even before that.

Without injuries i will agree but there is always the injury variable
