Nadal's forehand is a HUUUGE shot, one of the biggest forehands of all time (and IMO the best, even better than peak Federer) in terms of the energy put into it. Remember that spin is a form of power as well. It's not easy to get that many RPM's and still get decent pace on the ball. Federer is not capable of that. When Nadal hits even a little less spin he is capable of consistently hitting more pace than anyone else in the current mens top 4. Nadal would not be getting overpowered by Kuerten on clay IMO.
