On clay, at his best I believe Kuerten was superior to Lendl but on record I think Lendl was better. It's close. Kuerten is one of the few players I believe would have a good chance to beat Nadal at his best on red clay.

The guy had a very underrated serve also and he could play well on faster surfaces.
