At the moment, he may not have the problem of defending many points next year. And when his ranking slides, he'll play the seeds instead of the other way round. Things are not going to get any easier for him.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
