Fed will be turning 32 this year and clearly his time will be coming to an end as a top threat. Its inevitable sooner or later. Who knows if Nadal will ever the the same if/when he does return. To come off close to close to a year no tennis and then have to deal with Djokovic is a tough circumstance for anyone.
Ferrer, Del Potro, Berdych etc.. are all Nole's whipping boy slaves who pose NO problems whatsoever. Nor will they for the next 3-4 years.
Murray at this point in time seems to be the only realistic threat.. And Murray still can't let go of the demons in his head which constantly affects his confidence. And with no other legitimate threat around at this point in time (depending on Rafa's return), Nole should realistically be mopping up slams for the next 2-3 years at a relentless pace barring injury
Yeah Djokovic will soon surpass Agassi thus proving that Federer had way more competition than Sampras, after all he was competing with Djokovic as far back as 2006. He even lost to him in 2007 TO final and had to play him in 2007 USO final. Indeed it looks like Federer had to compete with two all time greats most of his career.
