I'd say he has about 1-2 years max to dominate like he did in 2011 and he hardly ever brings that level to court nowadays.

And the 5 slams in 2 years is a bit misleading in my opinion. 3 of those 5 were won in one year on the form of his life, and 3 of those 5 were won on one surface [AO]. Yes he can do it but realistically he won't do it I think, especially if Nadal wins more slams. I'd give Djokovic 10-11 slams max. Winning slams is not an easy feat.
Of course it's not an easy feat, but he's got already 6 and that makes him one of the best players in history, a legend. I'm happy with that even if he doesn't win any more, though I'm sure he will win a lot more. Nowadays these guys make it look easy to win a slam because there are basically 4 contenders winning them all the time. But it's a freaking stat.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
