Edberg's first GS title was in 1985, last in 1992, for a total of 6 over eight years.

Becker's first GS title was in 1985, last in 1996, for a total of 6 over eleven years.

Djokovic doesn't look like he's done winning majors yet, so if he's not in the tier with these three yet, I have little doubt he will be.
its not odd coz the top players r in contention for more slams more often due 2 surface homogenization

in 20 yrs, every player who has spent any amt of time near the top of the rankings since the mid-2000s will have a djoko-like slam record n we will realize that they aint worth as much as they used to be
