Murray is much luckier with the era he peaked at than Safin and Hewitt were. All the rivals Murray has to face put together are not such an iron walls to the Slam gates as a prime Federer was.
Is 28 years old "post-prime"? I'm sorry, but that's nonsense. No reasonable person who saw the 2008 USO final and 2010 AO final could say that Federer wasn't peaking in those matches. He was phenomenal in both.
