Default 'I think he's the best player on any surface'

...thats what cowan said about federer when watching him destroy rusedski. is he right? can federer really be called the best on clay when he hasn't been past the qf stage of roland garros yet??

Yes, he will do the same thing on clay this year as he did on other surfaces last year. He will take us by storm and surprise us.

I think he can be the best player on any surface, depends on the day, really. As far as clay goes if he shows up and plays his best he could give anyone a bad day. Nadal, Gaudio, and Coria are the best players on this surface until proven otherwise.

whoever wins the FO is the best clay court player of the past 12 months so if Roger does that then he can be called that fairly.

True. That holds up better for Wimbledon and grass though. There are enough big tournaments on clay in a year that an RG result can be overriden IMO. For example I still considered JCF the best clay court player in the world even though Costa beat him in '02. You even get aberrations at GS's.

So I guess you really feel that Gaudio was the best player on clay last year?

I'd be in great trouble to name the best clay-courter last year, my feeling is that quite a few players shared the booty
