I'm not convinced, considering we are currently watching peak Djokovic and he needed 6 hours to defeat Nadal at the Australian Open (Djokovic's favorite slam surface, and Nadal's 3rd or 4th best slam surface).
Look, I don't know what is going to happen in the future and I would not rule Nadal out completely, but the fact is Nadal has not defeated Djokovic off clay since that winning streak of Djokovic's in 2011 and Nadal has not won ANY tournament off clay since 2010.
