I wasn't talking about him as a CCer overall ... He's greater and better than federer on clay ....

see, even parts of the final set are available on youtube :

rosewall making so many silly errors ......

However while rosewall's longevity on clay was excellent, peak to peak , I do see nadal and borg dominating Rosewall on clay ......
Put any right handed single handed backhand player against Rafael Nadal on a clay court and you would know what he is. No one in the history of Tennis had to face the insane topspin generated by Rafa's left forehand directed at the right hand single handed backhand..
