Nadal is the clay court GOAT only. Sampras has him beat in every other category on every other surface.
However, in Nadal's favor, Sampras is almost 0 on clay. He has never even made it to the finals of RG. Nadal, OTOH has made multiple finals in all slams.

I think the Nadal vs Sampras argument will boil down to who has more GSs at the end. And Nadal is almost certainly clay GOAT.
