Roger Federer is too humble to declare a point proven, but his record against rising stars makes for impeccable reading.
The Swiss maestro's straight-sets win over Milos Raonic in the Australian Open fourth round continued his unbeaten run over players born in the 1990s.
On Monday night, he made it four straight wins against Raonic, 22, and 14 straight over the '90s generation.
Add Bernard Tomic (four times), Ryan Harrison (twice), David Goffin, Denis Kudla, Devin Britton and Vasek Pospisil (all once) and the perfect record is complete.
After his win over Nikolay Davydenko in the third round, Federer said he hoped to intimidate younger players with his aura the first time they met.
But the 31-year-old appears to have no intention of giving a rising star their biggest scalp yet any time soon.
Federer is aware the first set is crucial against younger opponents who have nothing to lose and he has wasted little time making his presence felt.
Against Tomic, he broke in the first game and when taking on the big-serving Raonic, he created break points midway through the opening set before breaking in the 10th game.
World number one Novak Djokovic described his second-round win over Harrison as his best early-round grand slam performance.
Federer meanwhile said he was no longer looking to put younger players 'in their place'.
"Maybe five years ago. Today I'm in a different place myself," he said after beating Raonic.
"I just try to go out there and play my best, regardless if they're young or not. But I get a lift, as well, in terms of energy playing against those kind of guys.
"But I don't try to hit harder or intimidate them because they've seen the big serves and they've seen the great movement around. They know what it's all about.
"Yeah, I don't play so much with the fear factor and all that stuff. I really just try to beat them. That's the only thing."
For Federer, there is no need for talk pre-match or post-match about making statements.
Tomic admitted to being unnerved by the list of Federer's achievements read out by announcer Craig Willis during the warm-up of their clash.
Federer has a dream record against players born in the 1990s, partly because most – if not all – consider him their idol.
With one of the greatest of all-time, and perhaps your hero, standing the opposite side of the net, only something – and someone – special can end the streak.
