Question Among the Rafa demolishers on HC, who has the best chance of beating Rafa on clay?

The question is simple and excludes Federer. I am waiting for your comments. Also tell the match that you want to see most. Also I add Tipsarevic because of the Federer match. He is a talented guy and doesn't fear from Federer. It is a possibility that he can demolish Rafa on HC. The match between Rafa and him on clay would be very interesting.

Re: Among the Rafa demolishers on HC, who has the best chance of beating Rafa on clay

I think the person most likely to defeat Rafa on clay this year is David Ferrer. I think he stands a better chance than anybody. If Rafa does not win the French Open again this year, then I say it will be Ferrer not Federer that does.

Can't choose which beatdown I'd like to see more.

I would consider Youzhny, Tsonga, and Blake people that should be lucky if they could win a set off of the boy on clay.

Nalbandian and Ferrer. The rest are relative mugs on clay. Btw Djokovic's head-head with Rafa on hard/indoor is 2-2. Not exactly a demolisher

Nalbandian. The other guys won't have much of a chance with Ferrer being in 2nd place.

I don't think Tsonga has MUCH MORE chance to beat Nadal on clay than Roddick would have...
I think Nalbandian in a hot day can do it.

I had to read this post like three times before I realized you weren't talking about hot temperatures. Until then, I was like "Really, Nalbandian in hot weather? Like..really?"

Re: Among the Rafa demolishers on HC, who has the best chance of beating Rafa on clay

Tsonga is someone who purposely avoids clay, so I doubt he'll steamroll Nadal on clay.
