yeah, only problems with that argument are :

peak safin would've beaten laver @ AO 2005 ......

and laver's main problem, ; at times, going for too much and losing concentration for spells would cost him big time vs nadal who is just too good at focusing on every point and very rarely loses focus

while laver's BH and net play are better than federer's, federer's serve and fh are better ......

also nadal was better on clay in 2006 than he was in 2005 ....

federer/laver are at pretty similar levels on clay IMO, while laver would not face the matchup problem that federer does, still would probably not be enough vs nadal on clay ....especially 2006 onward ...and even in 2005, he'd have to be in absolute top form ....
