    Hard to compare Clay courters w/ today's spin gala and modern racquets. Borg, Vilas, Wilander, Guga....old school; today Nadal !

    Wasn't Kuerten the first new school? He used poly strings.

    Subjective opinion of top highest average level clay court players Pre Open Era in chronological order
    HL Doherty
    Wilding
    Bill Tilden
    Rosewall
    Laver

    Gonzalez could be there too as well as well as Tony Trabert. I understand Segura was pretty good on clay also but I have to check his record on that surface..
