Hewitt was surpassed as the youngest winner by Federer, 1 year and 9 months later

Safin was surpassed by Hewitt, exactly one year later.

Nadal was surpassed by Djokovic, 2 years and 8 months later, falling just short of my three year cutoff.

Djokovic, who was 20, not 19, was surpassed by del Potro 1 year and 8 months later.

Being a young winner is no guarantee someone born after you will not appear on the scene sooner rather than later.
