Here is an overview of slam winners that have been youngest for three years or more (Open Era only):
Michael Chang: FO 1989 to FO 1996 - 7 years
Björn Borg: FO 1974 to USO 1979 - 5 years 4 months
Boris Becker: W 1985 to RG 1989 - 3 years 11 mounts
Juan Martin del Potro: USO 2009 to ? - 3 years 8 months (to FO 2013) and counting
Gustavo Kuerten: FO 1997 to USO 2000 - 3 years 4 months
Mats Wilander: FO 1982 to W 1985 - 3 years 1 month
Interesting. If Del Potro hadn't won the USO in 2009, Djokovic would pretty much be a lock to beat Chang here.
