Nadal is indeed a more peculiar/complex case but his age generally should be a "prime age".
And he did reach the finals of 5 slams in a row until RG this year.
My point was general and I did say that Djoko, Nadal and Murray were not at their best this year.
Anyway, they're still far from 30 years old.
