Again, age showing its weight.
Question to older tennis players. Does getting old in Tennis hurt as much and breaks you down as much as in other sports? When I see older players they seem slower and weaker, but don't seem to be in the extreme pains that older pro players in other sports are in.

When you stop being the #1 in the world because you aged out of it, does it still make sense to try and play for top 16 or is the suffering to high to make it worth it?

It was a low level final outside some points here and there as they never played at high level at the same time, Fed only playing well in the first and Thiem did good but nothing extraordinary the rest of the time.

It makes sense: look at this final, despite not being at his best he did gett his chances, like last year. When you still do it to grand slam second week, win 500 and go to final in 1000...? Sure.

Now what Fed is lacking to sustain a high level of play and rise his game at will when needed, like before, is adrenaline and all the other natural drugs our body and brain generate when we need it ^^ For me it explains his passivity in this match in key moments when there were opportunities.
