I was wondering what everyone thinks Nadal's game an style would be like if he had been raised and styled for hard court? Would he be as effective and incredible as he is today?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that he would be better on hardcourts, and not so good on clay.

I agree.

Time for this thread to die.

Although I would add that I still think he would be incredible. On hard courts, obviously.

What if he decided to focus on soccer?
What if his uncle made him play right-handed?
What if he decided to buy bigger underwear?

These are all important and relevant questions.

Well, not many people know that Ferrero actually has been raised on hard and look at his clay results compared to other

He probably would have trouble sleeping. One does need a soft mattress to sleep soundly

Indeed, and Federer was raised on clay, his weakest surface. Imagine if he'd grown up on hard courts.

He wasn't, so why speculate? :zzz:
Because we can, and I find it interesting. Can you imagine if his forehand had developed as a flat power shot? (Though I like his forehand the way it is. One of my favorite forehands in the game.)

He would have won AO and USO.
