Is Nadal the most underrated Hard Courter of all time

No it's not that, but check the thread title please.

Me personally, I love clay. It takes away Pete's status compared to Federer cuz of clay.

Clay also makes Fed the ultimate goat. He is dominating four of the five main events, plus he was 2nd on clay his worst event.

Nr.1 in four main events and nr.2 in worse event = the best.
Do you have an ability to discuss anything tennis related without having it go back to Fed? Wow, get a grip.
 
No Nadal is just the luckiest hard courter of all time.
No way he is underrated. He can only be overrated here.

The player who is really underrated is Djokovic.
Yes, Nadal lucked his way to 2 USO titles, beating Djokovic in the final both times. Also the Australian Open final he won over Federer. Not to mention the countless hard court masters.

So luck. Much overrated.
 
Yes quite possibly. He's the 3rd best hard court player of his era and given how competitive things are on hard court (the majority of the top 100 are hard court specialists), it is quite an achievement (and he doesn't get enough credit for it).
 
Nadal has 16 titles on hard. Murray has 25, Novak 36, Fed 56. I don't necessarily think he's overrated or underrated.
Murray may have more overall titles on hard than Nadal but he only has 1 more master title, has never made a WTF final (Nadal has made several) and has only 1 slam tilte, Nadal has 3 and won both AO and USO. So excuse me but Nadal gets the upper hand on hard vs anyone not named Fed or Djoko. (and yes, people like you trying to pretend that Murray has a more impressive record on hard where it matters means that Nadal is 100% underrated as his record gets constantly downplayed and unfairly so)

Pathetic straw man. I never said Murray has a better overall résumé – I simply stated a true fact, namely their number of titles on hard court.
Of course the three hardcourt slams of Rafa are more impressive than Murray's one, and this is what weighs the most. This I have not refuted. But 25 to 16 titles is nevertheless a big difference. The gap on hard between Rafa and Fed/Novak is vast. Thus, It's silly to try to make Rafa into more of a hardcourt monster than he is. 16 titles on the most used surface on tour does by no means make Rafa "underrated", seeing how much he gets hyped.
