Doesn't matter. According to the resident Tennis Warehouse Geniuses,if you can't win on ALL surfaces,then you are a one dimensional mug. ******* is not exempt from this Rule if Nadal isn't,no matter how many hardcourt tournaments there are compared to clay or grass. If anything,he's lucky he's a hardcourter,or else maybe he wouldn't have won as much since his best surface dominates the tour.
It also proves that each player has a surface that suits them best. It just so happens that *******'s best surface is the most prevalent while Nadal's isn't. Nadal has also been more successful outside of his best surface than ******* has been outside of his.
