Default Indoors

You are right, Nadal would have been able to do well on clay courts. However in the 90s and especially the 80's indoor tennis was a big part of the game. I don't think nadal would have coped with that. You had Philadelphia, Stockholm, Wembley, tokyo, paris indoors, sydney indoor, Milan, wct finals (1980s), grand slam cup (1990s) and of course the season end finals. Oudoor hard courts were faster too like the australian open from 1988 onwards (compared to todays ultra slow court)
