Whereas other records, like surface streaks (which Nadal holds the record for at 81 consecutive wins on clay), are much more important. They're about WINNING.

This is a lot easier to do when there are so many clay tournaments that he can play. There are 2 tournies on grass (Fed's best surface). If there were more grass tournaments, especially one or two Masters I'm sure Fed would have had more consecutive grass wins during the years 2003-2007 than Nadal had on clay. As it stands he still won 60 straight grass matches just by playing 2 tournaments, Halle and Wimbledon. But we'll never know what might have been because the grass season is so ridiculously short.
