Nole and Andy can dominate until they're 30 for sure. Look at the top 10 now. Nole is the youngest of all them!!! Fish, Tsonga, Sod, Berdych, Ferrer are having their best years after they hit 25. So I'm very confident when I say Nole and Andy are going to dominate in the next 3-4 years. They're just entering their primes and they will last until they're at least 29-30. Don't give me shit about their playing styles, for all we know Nadal can still play at his best for the next three years. Neither Nole nor Andy have had any important injury in their careers. Back pains, sore shoulders, yeah sure but everyone has them! Even federer but he doesn't like to talk about it.
Federer has not won a slam since he was 28(January 2010) but somehow the less talented Djokovic and Murray will do what Federer has not been able to do in this physical era, win a slam after 28.

Nole will dominate until 2020 when he retires and then tennis will be canceled due to lack of talent

You never know. It could happen. Just because Federer hasn't managed to do it, doesn't mean no one else can. Didn't he play a Slam final last year? If he would have met someone not named Nadal in the final, he would have probably won RG. Winning a Slam depends on many factors, not just talent (which Djokovic and Murray already have).

If the Fedal Era has indeed completely ended, then alls good. It has been a great experience watching these Federer and Nadal rule tennis and it has perhaps been put to stop by a freak athlete with one of the GOAT seasons. Its fine, its been a wonderful era for the sport anyway

Nonetheless, even if the duopoly has ended, both Federer and Nadal will see slam success for another year or two, likely more than that for Rafa.

If we define Fedal era as a period of time where ONLY two of them collect slams then yes, it's probably over.
However, both Federer and Nadal are still top slam contenders and If Djokovic loses early one of them will almost certainly take the title- Roger is the second pick at AO/USO and Nadal is the second one(or maybe the first) at RG, while both have approximately the same chances to win Wimbledon.

We've been here before after Nadal losing inconsequential matches in warm up events. When he stops making slam finals at a better rate than 50% we can talk. For now he has been in 6 of the last 7 slam finals, dominating everyone but Djokovic on the biggest stages, having world class results on every surface. He even lost to Monfils in Doha the year he won the Australian, how short is your memory? Sure, he might be on the way down, but it's too early to tell. There certainly hasn't been compelling evidence yet. His results against the field other than Djokovic were his best ever last year, if the Serb had been injured all year he would've completely dominated. On the way out indeed.

Exactly. Just because Federer couldn't do it (and we still don't know, he may snatch one or two slams yet) it doesn't mean anyone else won't. Look at Agassi, he did it, right?

And anyway, the sweet spot for Federer was between the ages of 24-27, when he won 10 Grand Slam titles. I think and believe that Nole can do that himself.

Of course. But to think it is a foregone conclusion that they will be dominating at 30 is delusional.

Yes. Nole is as great as Federer that is why he crowned his season where he won 3 slams with the YEC win like Federer did in 2004, 2006 and 2007.

Exactly! Novak is not Federer! Look at Federer's record in 2006 - he lost only to Nadal & Murray. Djokovic lost to Tipsarevic, Nishikori, Ferrer, Murray, Federer, Del Potro. Plus you can't ignore style of play. Djokovic's is more of a strain to his body than Federer's & Djokovic does not have as good a serve as Federer - Federer could fire down a lot of aces to get on a roll - Novak wins mainly with his baseline game.

2012, 2013 may be his seasons but beyond that is unlikely. Plus Murray probably won't go awol at the HC masters like he did last year. Federer was by far the best on HCs and grass so he had 3 slams which he was the overwhelming favourite for. Novak has the Aus Open. He's favourite for US Open too but others like Murray have chances. He's not the favourite for the French or Wimbledon (or certainly won't be for an extended number of years) - far harder for him to get 10+ slams for that reason.

The Fedal era of only them winning slams is gone (but really given that Federer is over 30 this is not a big shock...) but they're still big contenders. Winning 3 sets in a best of 5 is still not easy - last year in slams Federer lost to Djokovic, Tsonga & Nadal; Nadal to Djokovic & Ferrer i.e. no one outside the top 6.

This year is not Novak at 28! I've said he can dominate this year and next but that's about it. Will he win 3 this year? Potentially but 2 more likely... 3 next year? Very unlikely. Murray, Del Potro etc. are going to be fighting it out too.

Plus pretty sure Rafa will kill himself for the French & Wimby - same goes for Fed at the Olympics - it's a long long road to 6+ more grand slams. Here's hoping all the top guys stay injury free too - you just never know what will happen.

Say Novak dominates 2 more years like you said .....Del Potro and Murray will be non factors in 3 years .....
