Because I like 22. Ivanovic, Sharapova are a different generation to me, if we work from Wozniacki, who is only 20. Two years older and everything younger seems like the future. You don´t need to agree, but 25 players from the top 80 seems a good sample size.

True. They've been overcome with fear for some time already - Serena made up an injury and a life-threatening condition just to avoid playing her, Venus is suffering psychosomatic injuries brought on by the fear of Wozniacki, Clijsters withdrew from IW because she couldn't handle playing her again, and Henin did the wisest thing - she re-retired after having realised that even cheating wouldn't help her beat this tennis great.

Venus is definitely not the player she once was and I think if they play this year Caroline will probably win. As far as the other two I think that Caroline's game could greatly benefit if she had some embarrassingly bad losses to Kim and especially Serena. That would force her to change her game and develop her offensive abilities. In the short term she would lose more often but I think that the more often she played a healthy and in form Serena the better she would get. Caroline is already a very good player, just imagine how good she could be with a little more aggression added to her game.

This is not every other sport. In what we consider the real world

Clijsters was 26, 27, 27
Venus was 20, 20, 21, 21, 25, 27, 28
Serena was 19, 20, 20, 21, 21, 22, 24, 26, 27, 27, 27, 28, 28
Schiavone was 30
Henin was 20, 21, 21, 22, 23, 24 ,25
Davenport was 22, 23, 24
Mauresmo was 26, 27
Pierce was 20, 25
Sharaopova was 18, 19, 20
Kuznetsova was 19, 25
Hingis was 17, 17, 18, 18, 19

Only one player in the last decade was older than 28, when they won a major (Schiavone). So age 22 seems to be a very generous cut-off for the NEXT generation, given that the last generations had won a combined 25 majors, when they were 22 years old. This generation so far has one Slam final.

You're missing Clijsters' first slam. And of course that's not a fair comparison because you're comparing the achievements of players born from 1975-1987 (13 years) to the achievements of players born from 1988-1991 (4 years) and because most of the players in the 2nd group haven't actually hit the age of 22 yet. Also, you don't appear to be counting Ivanovic for either generation. If she's the current generation, then they do have 1 slam win. And if you count Sharapova as well, then they have 4.

Also, wasn't Sharapova 17 when she won Wimbledon? I seem to recall hearing that somewhere :)

That was just to illustrate that tennis players don´t peak at age 28. Sharapova and Ivanovic had won their Slams and were no.1, before most of these players aged 22 or younger were even in the top 50, so I think it´s fair to say it´s a different generation. I would also count Szavay to the previous generation and Petkovic/Rezai(older than 22) to this generation, but then it would get too complicated, so I took age 22, since that seems the best cutoff.

Sure to throw in the Slams total was a bit misleading, but even if you split them in four year periods, you have eight Slams before age 22 and unless Wozniacki wins the next eight Slams I doubt these players will get to that average. ;)

If we consider your numbers, the median is 23 years while the average is 22.69.

If we consider all slam winners from 1980 to this date. The average is 23.65 while the median is 24.01. So statistically speaking, using your argument, one could argue that it would be more appropriate to choose a peak threshold of 23-24 years.

True, but they tend to peak later than they used to.
The reason is most likely the Age Eligibility Rule.

Thanks.

I´m too lazy to check the draws. I´ll just wait two days and see who played. :lol:

I don't think Bojanovski's playing anything this week, so she's more NOT PLAYING than ALIVE.

I only update when they lose, so there is no update for Wozniacki and Azarenka...:rolleyes:

...but good to see you pay attention, last week you were nowhere to be seen. :lol:

DONE!

The over 22 curse is alive and kicking. Can the youngsters make it 5 out of 5 tournament wins. :lol:

Wozniacki, Radwanska and Goerges into the Stuttgart semifinals.

Oudin, Halep and Pivovarova into Fes quarterfinals. :tape:

With Goerges vs. Radwanska/Wozniacki for the title, the trophy will again go to a player under 23 years old.

Can the young girls make it 5 of 5 titles, since the prophetic words have been spoken by the Woz?

Obviously and as expected standing in the way is another late bloomer from Italy and a future French Open Champion Alberta Brianti. :devil:

Here the differences of a (hopefully) future top player and a headcase:

Simona reaches the final as a qualifier of the MM in Fes 2010, failed against Benesova she beat one week before comfortably.
Reaches final 2011 again, fails against Brianti she beat in their first meeting 6-1, 6-1

Alexandra reaches Warsaw (Premier) final 2009 as a qualifier, upsets Bondarenko with bagel in the third set.
Reaches final 2010 again, beating Jie in straights

Tennis is so about mental strength. Alexandra has it, though she tends to chokes when serving out (mainly due to the fact she doesn't have something you can call serve). Simona hasn't any :facepalm:
