Cyborgs, maybe !

Medvedev was in stellar form, but Djoko just dismantled his game. Some people complain that Djoko's style (especially compared with Federer and Nadal) is boring, but it is extremely effective, and his game intelligence is brilliant. I predict he will keep on being at the top of men's tennis for at least 5 more years, barring injuries

The Russian wave broke upon the rocks. Keep it up, though. These guys at the top need a serious challenge!

Federer's pretty much a busted flush at 39, may have a bit of a run at Wimbledon, but that's it. As for Nadal, he's only unbeatable at Roland Garros. So the younger players really only have to concentrate on Djoko.

Yes, it is too bad that Nishikori and Medvedev had to come of age while the cyborg terminators were ruling the courts. Injuries and age will catch up to the cyborgs soon, but there will only be a few available championships left in their wake before Nishikori and Medvedev also face their own retirements.

Why in the world are you trying to put Nishikori and Medvedev in the same category? Medvedev just turned 25 last week - he's a young up-and-comer. Nishikori is 31, just two years apart from Djokovic. Nishikori's chance at big-time success has been gone for some time now. Medvedev has a bright, promising (and long) future ahead.
