So, Courier is a "clay monster" and on another cathegory than Bruguera? Up there with Nadal, Borg and Muster. You know they all won +30 clay titles and that Courier won only 5 titles, right?
From the 70s up you also have Nastasse and Vilas who were way superior to Courier on clay and won 70 clay titles between them, so I really dont know where you got in your mind that Courier is one of the 5 giants of this surface? Wouldnt have him in my top 15 list.
You rank Agassi in another cathegory, but they were not far from equals on clay during Courier's prime. Courier just had a slight edge against Agassi when they were young but arguably you could say Agassi in the long run catched up with Courier and achieved almost as much as Courier on clay.
Also, if Federer won another RG I would put him somewhere close to Lendl on clay.
Ask the Mods to make your opinions sticky.
Clearly you consider your opinion as the very truth and others opinions are laughable, so why even having other opinions
Courier was rulling RG for some years and he was as dominant as the guys i mention.
That's my impression and that's what i know for myself.
Your stats are just stats.
Federer winning RG was a fluke and this comes from a fan of the guy. Everybody knows this.
If Rafa doesn't participate Roger might snatch another one somewhere in case he pulls some magic inside outs again against mediocre competition to save his life...and he'd still be near Bruguera category, coz the ruller of this time, on clay is Nadal and that's it.
Just as Courier was absolutely dominant in his time. Agassi never was. He's like Federer a player who adjusted his huge talent for all other kinds of courts to be competitive enough on clay, but that's not a great clay courter.
He's a Milky Way distance better player, but not a greater clay courter.
