I think that you mean the 1950's, when the clay field was the toughest ever, much tougher than today.
Just think:
Segura, Patty, Drobny, Trabert, Rosewall, Hoad, Davidson, Pietrangeli to name only the greatest.
Nadal would have won only one French title at most in the 1950's. If VERY lucky, two.
No sarcasm.
