Default USO: Why is it the only Slam currently producing winners outside the Big 3?

Last players other than Federer, Nadal or Djokovic (the Big 3) to win these Slams:

Australian Open: Marat Safin in 2005.

French Open: Gaston Gaudio in 2004.

Wimbledon: Lleyton Hewitt in 2002.

US Open : Juan Martin Del Potro in 2009, Andy Murray in 2012.

Compared to the other 3 Slams, the USO has shown itself to be more open to recent winners not named Federer, Nadal or Djokovic.

Why is this? Thoughts?
