You got to be joking if you can't tell the difference between grass and clay.
The first event Rafa played in 2006 (after his 2005 injury break) was Marseille and he lost in the semi but that was indoor hard. I believe he's gonna make both finals on clay (singles and doubles).
ETA: in 2009, he came back in Canada and lost in quarter to Delpo. Once again, if you think Nadal on hard = Nadal on clay, you haven't been paying attention.
