Speed or success wise?

That would be Nadal if you ask me. Just as sure as Barba is the Bolt of Rugby League.:)

The "whole package" that is Usain, I guess. I've heard it used in other sports that I follow when the Olympics come around "this guy is like the Usain Bolt of our sport..."

Sure, Bolt is - after all - mainly known for still standing tough when his opponents are utterly exhausted :lol:

There is none with even a slight resemblance if you ask me.

If Monfils was good, he would be.

Who in tennis openly claimed 'I am a living legend'?

Whosoever came closest to this honest arrogance in tennis is the equivalent, no doubt.

Nadal on clay comes closest I guess

lolwut? Fed and Nole have there moments, but they could never measure up to Bolt's legendary arrogance.

Physically, Nadal - but how good would Bolt be if he were to run sideways instead of a straight line?

Maybe the better comparison is in terms of mental strength, and resilience. In terms of mental strength, Nadal has a shot. In terms of resilience over time - given the limit in the prime age of a hundred meter athlete, Bolt's back-to-back gold is comparable to Roger's resurgence to #1 when no one expected that.

Monfils.

In terms of speed? Murray. In terms of GOATness, Federer.
