He didn't play a long five setter in his previous match and he isn't a tricenarian. He has been the better player of the two since Wimbledon and the slow surface greatly favored him.

I have no idea what any of that means but I'm guessing it means he is old.

Pretty much. Doubtful that Murray will still be on tour when he's 31.

MrFunnyWobbl taking home ec to pursue his career as stay-at-home dad.

If he has any kids, that is.

31 is very old in tennis. For one thing, because it's an individual sport and when tennis players start to decline physically in their late 20's, there aren't teammates to cover up for them and they won't continue to be great players because they have a great understanding of the game and can still thrive within a team.

Also, it emphasizes quickness and agility instead of attributes like strength. The former peak earlier in life than the latter.
