You should rely on Nole and Delpo for that job though (both on and off clay). On paper, Murray should also be able to beat Nadal outside of claycourts, but I'm afraid he's too much of a Rafa fanboy to get it done. His mental block against Rafa in big matches is probably even bigger than Federer's.
Nah, if it's not obvious, I can't stand Nadull but I make most of these points in a joking manner. Most don't get it which just shows how strong the tardism is around here.

Undoubtedly, I prefer JMDP's game as well as Murray's and Novak's attacking modes way more than Nadal. However, it's also true tennis needs competition, especially on clay as that has become snooze season in the last 8 years except 2011.

I also think Fed can do some damage against RN in his present mental state. He's really a fighter in BO3 where he's more competitive on the physical side and has shown he's willing to attack against RN, even on a surface and conditions that suit RN's game down to a T - AO night session BO5.

He's thinking "Why is this guy above me acting so cocky. He should know who's the boss by now".

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
