delPo, Wawrinka and Cilic winning 5 slams in 13 years ≠ younger players should now be beating the GOAT's.But if the likes of Del Potro, Wawrinka and Cilic could take a Grand Slam when the 3 are about, why cannot the current younger players.
Note Del Potro was just 21 when he defeated Federer in the final after overcoming Nadal in the semi final.
In a similar way; Zverev, Dimitrov and Sock winning 5 of the past 12 masters ≠ the younger generation beginning to take over.
When all is said and done, you've still got 3 guys winning most big tournaments (4, until the Murray injury). That has remained a constant. It has been a domination over a long period of time, it doesn't matter which way you want to spin it.
