And you need to consider this...
 
It is common tennis knowledge that an ATP tennis generation is 5 years.
 
Reasoning:
 
Real life generation is 20 years. This is for a life expectancy of
approx. 75 yrs (let's make that 80 for round numbers).
 
For ATP tennis, the life expectancy is usually 10 years, occasionally
15, and rarely 15+.
 
So real life:
Life expectancy 80, generation 20 (generation a factor of .25)
 
ATP tennis:
(Let's bump up the life expectancy a bit)
Life expectancy 15, generation 5 (generation a factor of .33)
 
 
Why am I mentioning all of this?
Can you imagine a great grandfather getting on a tennis court and
playing their great grand child a tennis match? Who do you think would win?
 
Well this is exactly what Federer is doing every time he steps on
court an plays a 20 or 21 year old!
 
And you know what?
He still beats them almost every time!
 
Incredible eh Icey?

Indoor hard is not a surface.
 
Also, 3 matches is too few for statistical analysis, as is 6.

Too small to draw conclusions on. Plus indoor hard is not a surface,
it's just part of the matches played on hard.
