Just a theory of mine, but I suggest that the game was changing faster in those times than it is now or had before.

There was a big-time transformation towards a power baseline game (largely due to technological change) and old-school guys had to work harder in order to remain competitive.

Wilander's level slipped a bit (some rumors that he had too many recreational activities) and he was no longer winning anything.
