Same in tennis then, you don't see Monfils and Simon winning multiple slams. Nadal is pretty much the only one who can win frequently without risking a whole lot, but it's unlikely anyone could copy that style and have the same amount of success.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
