Everyone concedes Nadal the clay court GOAT today, it isnt even a debate any longer, deal with it.
Harold Solomon was a nightmare on clay. He made opponents feel like they were drowning in moonballs. He even made Borg lose his patience and go for winners just to end a point. I can see even the great Nadal suffering a loss or two to Solomon. Orantes, Ramirez, Gerulaitis and Pecci were all court touch players who had nothing to hurt Nadal with, IMO.
