He obviously never will be in the same ball park as a hard court player. Nadal is not a hard court player, but he's not a grass court player either, yet he's effective on grass. The reasons are not that important right now. One more thing to add, if they would play 10 matches on super fast hard courts, i wouldn't expect Roger to beat Nadal 8 out ot 10 times, like the spaniard does on clay...
It would be more like 6-4, or 7-3, and even that is questionable, if they'd play those 10 matches in the next one year, for example... But that obviously wouldn't mean Rafa is better on hard courts... He is, was, and just will be a horrible matchup for Roger, as we all know. He would be one on ice, sand, and if they were playing on the moon, probably. Well, maybe not on the moon, his topsin wouldn't do too much damage there.
