I'm sure no one saw it happening for McEnroe too.

Interesting that #3 on that list, McEnroe, only won one more Slam to
finish with seven. I hadn't realized he was that dominant that
early. I do remember thinking that he would likely fade at a
relatively young age because of the game he played - once he lost a
step and his reflexes slowed even a bit he would fall off.

I don't see this happening with Nadal though.
