Parity? mediocrity? What past decade of Grand Slams tells us about tennis
Bill Connelly (ESPN)

Quote:
Take the 2010 Australian Open, for example. The first Slam of the 2010s could have been mistaken for any Slam of the past decade. On the men's side, the top three seeds were Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic; Nadal was the defending champion but fell to Andy Murray, who lost to Federer in the final. On the women's side, top-seeded Serena Williams beat Petra Kvitova, Victoria Azarenka and Li Na en route to her fifth title in eight years.


Quote:
The 2019 US Open, the decade's final Slam, begins Monday in New York. Djokovic, Nadal and Federer are the top seeds in the men's draw, while Naomi Osaka is the top women's seed, with Williams the betting favorite to win her record-tying 24th career Grand Slam singles title. Same names on the men's side; familiar icon on the women's side, along with new names breaking through.


Quote:
Wherever your statistical beliefs lie, though, the men's and women's tours have skewed down divergent paths of late despite the similar names at the top. A decade is an arbitrary amount of time when talking about trends or power shifts, but the end of a decade is still an interesting opportunity to step back and take stock.
