as a Guga fan
he was awesome. not could have been awesome.
he's the only player to beat both andre and pete indoors, and he did it in high pressure situation...that was probably the most exciting year of tennis in terms of rankings that i have seen.
kuerten had a good serve, and was very solid off both wings. his bh was magical and the fh was indeed a weapon. his movement considering his height 6 '3 earlier in his career was pretty good too.
in short i agree w/ your analysis. i dont think nadal would be able to push around kuerten on clay or hard because of guga's great bh. plus he has a much better serve than nadal. on grass, i think nadal gets the edge, but i think guga's serve could indeed earn him some cheap points.
