Don't see at all how you think that laver had it easier on grass.

2/ it's not hypotehical at all. We know exactly how well laver played on hard court - devestatingly well. He won around 30 hard court titles in his career. Hence he looks to be no less dominant on that surface than grass.
Excellent points.
