Laver, a clearly superior clay courter than Federer, with a more diverse and complete game, and less stubborn and more willing to adapt to opponents, would have been more likely to do what Federer failed to do, take out a pre prime Nadal at RG en route to a possible Grand Slam.
NadalAgassi, I agree.
