Let's not also forget that tough competition can take a lot out of you as well and in the 90s, each field saw tough competition all around and the surface varied significantly from one field to another, so there were a lot of adjustments to be made by the player. The clay courters, for example, could never play on fast surface and similarly, fast players had to face a lot of trouble on slow surfaces like clay. With the homogenization of the surface, new racquet technology and weak field in general made it all possible for the top players like Federer, Nadal, Djokovic etc.

Didn't Federer said he wants to get to 20 slams?.  Whenever Rafa is injured his chances if winning a slam increase... a lot, and he knows it.  And Rafa, unfortunately, does with relative regularity either misses a slam or play it physically diminished.  I really think he's taking this into consideration.
It's taken Federer since the AO 2010 to win his 17th Slam, and he was very lucky to get as far as the final at Wimbledon.  Remember the Benneteau match?  And there's no doubt in a lot of people's minds that closing the roof was very much to his advantage.  Also, leaving Andy and Nadal out of the equation, Djokovic isn't going to go away any time soon.

Talk about greed.Maybe he should be left in the next,say,2 years to win every possible GS and then retire with a calm heart,because no one will ever repeat his record.At least during his lifetime.
