I was surprised at your asking that question to me. No offence meant but I thought you would have known that I don't know much about Laver's play.
Since Laver was left handed, he wouldn't have had the disadvantage that Roger had. I don't think Roger is as bad a clay courter as his results against Rafa prove it to be. I mean he beat Djokovic in RG when Rafa failed to beat Djokovic twice on clay in 2011. Rafa is a terrible match up for Roger especially on clay
