I'm not sure too. He is the King of Clay, but he said that for him grass has been always a nice surface to play on. In fact, grass seems a little bit 'exotic', as Nadal can't practice on grass on Manacor (only when he is out of home), where he practices on clay and indoor/outdoor hard court. And, of course, because of the importance that ATP gives to grass (unfortunately).
