If you want to, you can see Rosewall on clay.
I have seen Rosewall play against Laver (long highlights) in Rg 1968 and i respectfully disagree with you. Only Borg and Djokovic could handle (and even them to some extent) Nadal`s crazy top spin on clay. A peak form Nadal on clay is the closest one can get to an invincible player (this coming from a huge Fed fan). Again i must say, this is provided modern equipment for all players. If i take out poly from Nadal the story changes a a lot. But it is all suppositions i guess
