How good will Nadal/Djokovic be a 30

G.O.A.T.
Fed had a back injury and didn't even practice on the USTA grounds in 2017. He could barely move in the Canadian final against Zverev.

A healthy Fed would have been
prohibitively favored in a 2017 USO final against Nadal. He beat him like a drum all year, including 7 weeks after the USO in Shanghai. Anyone saying it would be "unlikely" that Federer wouldn't have beaten Nadal in 2017 wasn't watching tennis in 2017.
Don't go down that path....

It's no secret that Roger is quickly approaching, or baskin in his twilight years. However, you have to admit, at 30 years of age, and to be #3 in the world is still quite an accomplishment, and on a good day can still be competitive, and have a boxer's chance against Nadal, and Djoker.

So my question is, when Nadal, and Djoker hit 30, do you think they'll still be able to do what Federer is still doing today (ranking, results, etc)?

Personally, I'd be shocked to see either of them in the top 5 at 30, not for lack of talent.
OP must be shocked:

Ok, if you think it's a joke, tell me which title run Nadal had at the US Open where Fed would've beat him:

2010? Unlikely
2013? No chance
2017? Not as unlikely as 2010 but still unlikely
2019? Nope
It wasn’t a title run but I’d give fed a really good shot in 2011

Best of five sets, different conditions there than in Shanghai...
I disagree with your premise.
Nadal would have beaten him in 4 sets.
The last great version of Federer in Flushing Meadows was in 2015.
