My slam winning age stats in previous page would suggest that it's simply a normal cycle.
For example Rosewall was winning slams aged 35+ in early 1970's. After which in 80's we got the ALL-TIME 3 youngest slam winners in Chang, Becker and Wilander. Nadal is 5th youngest first time slam winner ever - winning slams in one's teens is an exception rather than the norm.
