Not really, since Fed turned 30 he won one slam, all of the other slam winners in that period were players in their early or mid 20s, in fact Fed was the oldest Wimbledon winner in the last 40+ years so more of an anomaly than anything else.

Has nothing to do with my (indirect) question, if it's common sense for player to play their best tennis in their 30s then why are the vast majority of slam winners in the Open Era players in their early to mid 20s?
