Two different topics.

On clay, I would not rank Nadal above Rosewall, Trabert, or Hoad, or possibly Lendl.
All of these players were overwhelming on clay, and the first three competed against each other to divide up the RG titles of the era.

Nadal has had little serious competition on clay. Federer is not a natural clay player.
BS. nadal's level on clay is well and above that of anyone not named Bjorn Borg. His achievements surpass that of any one else. Trabert, Hoad , Lendl don't even come within a country mile.
