Since Safin won the 2005 AO, we have had only 7 different grand slam winners.
This is by far the least amount of unique slam winners in any era of 50 slams since the open era began in 1968.
(2005-2017) 7: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka, Del Potro and Cilic.
(1992-2005) 22: Safin, Federer, Gaudio, Roddick, Ferrero, Agassi, Hewitt, Costa, Johnasson, Ivanisevic, Kuerten, Kafelnikov, Rafter Moya, Korda, Krajicek, Becker, Muster, Bruguera, Edberg, Courier, Sampras
(1979-1992) 16: Edberg, Stich, Courier, Sampras, Gomez, Lendl, Chang, Wilander, Cash, McEnroe, Connors, Noah, Kriek, Teacher, Villas, Borg
(1968-1979) 16: Borg, Connors, Vilas, Tanner, Gerulaitis, Panatta, Edmondonson, Orantes, Ashe, Newcombe, Nastase, Smith, Gimeno, Rosewall, Kodes, Laver
What do you think about his? It certainly can't be good for tennis overall. What will the next 50 slams bring? A return to a more flexible era or will it be dominated by a few again?
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson
