I looked up Urban Dictionary and I got nothing. I notice Whisper uses this
term a lot. Is it supposed to mean early senile dementia?

it's called a "whisperism"

other "whisperisms" are:

"Nuclear volleys"
"7543"
"Clown Era"
"Bumrooter"
"Sampras on Steroids"
"Denko type clowns"
"Super GOATS"
"Sampras >Fed"

LOL, he used that one more two years ago, almost forgot how good it
was.
In fact whiksey's hardly says "beat" he'd rather have "routined" the
other player.

Share & Enjoy,

Yes, but Whisper never says ceib. He always says ceibs (current era is
best SYNDROME) as a derogatory term.

best SYNDROME) as a derogatory term.

It is a way of conceding defeat in an argument by Whisper in RST discussion.

Correct. Whenever whisper has to resort to either 7543 or ceibs he has
conceded defeat by way of resort to fantasy.

ceib =3D current era is best.
ceib is recognition that as time progresses the standard of tennis
improves. This can be the result of improved training techniques,
better technology and the maturing of strategies ('new' strategies
become understood improved further).
ceib is very much evident in tennis but is perhaps best demonstrated
by sprinters and swimmers and athletics in general. As records fall,
standards improve, times that earned a gold medal in the 1950's
probably wouldn't qualify for a final now.

Way early conclusion...
To use whiksey's best ever try (he didn't make it up, he borrowed it
from Courier), "you are as good as your opponent let you be".
And talking about athetics, what has a lot improve is the number (and
big big name) of the ones caught doped.
Even the infamous Carl "thanks god" Lewis was doped.
Possibly less than the Canadian bull (jealous of him?)

In case you ignored it, there are some discussion about "reseting"
many WR to zero, because of the quite huge amount of "suspect" WR

Talking more precisly about tennis, new coposite materieal allowed to
build stiffer AND large head, wich in return help less talented
players to bring back balls they won't have control.
Bigger heads racquets also favorized the 2 hands BackHand.
Giving both ability to return more balls + and using more power, then
edge over super fine control of the ball.

From that point we saw more and more carbon-copy BH, combined with a
terrific lost in both variety of the game & the "touch" of the balls.

Even best clay courters forgot how to dropshot!
They can only do some when the pressure is out of the point, not to
reverse the trend of a rally.

Compare Nadal's game to Arazi, and you will know what I am talking
about.
Both lefty. That's almost the only thing they share.
Nadal is all power & retrieving, Arazi is all control & angles.
From my esthetical point of view, Nadal's game is poor to cry.
Arazi's game is beautifull to cry.
Talking about titles...
Well no need: I'm pretty sure you know Nadal, saw him on TV.
Multi-slam winner...

Nothing Arazi can challenge.
Yet I felt we lost so much more than a player when Arazi retired...
We lost a gamestyle, too few players (India's grass culture has
offered few Paes & alikes... Too few anyway) have to will to play this
way.

Share & Enjoy,
Manolo

Long jump is an exception ...
Bob Beamon's record stood the test of time. And so is the current
record holder Powell's. In fact, i dont recall any athlete even coming
close to the mark these days

It is probably most pronounced in the athlete and their training and
diets these days, plus the equipment keeps getting better. It has
nothing to do with goat since that is a judgment against peers and what
was important in a particular players' era.
