you would have put Slovakia on clay against Germany?
It's not often the case, but I would say that Germany would have an edge on clay because Slovakia is even worse. Which Slovak player wants to win something on clay for them?
Kucera and Beck proved to be absolutely useless so far and they never did anything good on clay.
Hrbaty would be the one with the best chances, but I don't think he is that good on clay, he reached the final in Casablanca this year, but that's already his best result and I'm not sure how much we can read into that.
IMO it would have been an abolute joke if Slovakia wouldn't consider that Hrbaty already won an indoor title and that Beck/Kucera have a much better game on indoor hard than on clay.
Clay would be worse for Slovakia than indoor hardcourt.
