I'm sure, Clayray is better.
Nadull won his only hard-indoor title by accident - he just outlasted Ljubicic (thanks to BO5), who owned him in two first sets 6:3 6:2.
Another argument: Clown can't even benefit from today's slow-ass indoor surfaces. On carpet he wouldn't get through 2-3 rounds.

Updated: I'ts officially now. Murray won masters title demolishing clayGOAT

Obviously Nadal with his two WTF finals. It took Federer and Djokovic, two of the greatest indoor hard players ever, to beat him.

Of course Nadal. It's not even close. He have 2 finals in the greatest indoor tournament in the world. Murray 0.

Clayray can only pass Indoordal if he wins RG.

I think people have forgot that Nadal won Madrid in 2005.

They didn't. They just forgot it was on the Indoor Hard slot, unlike today.

Can we delete this thread and post it when (if?!?) Murray wins one or two Masters on clay?

Novaclay Indoorovic is better than both, by far.

Yeah. 2005, that was before he "learned to play on surfaces other than clay", if you believe the Dulltards on here.

He dropped the ball short more often at that time, making him more vulnerabel to big hitters. Thanks for exposing your lack of knowledge regarding the game yet again.

Of course Nadal. 2 WTF Finals (unbeaten runs) against top field and Madrid indoor masters title.

Push-Ray has no rating on clay, even with this low quality title unless he beats top players on dirt.

Murray almost didn't play weak clay events. Nadal's only title was rather a fluke (and before his home crowd)

If you try to be objective, it's pretty even so far and overall.
Nadal won those WTF round robin + SF matches because of his general aura, not because he plays well indoors... likewise Murray didn't win his matches in his RG SF runs, because he is great overall on clay, rather because he was able to serve and play some consistent tennis (and he is a better tennis player than those he beat).

Simple as that, and winning (better say fluking) an indoor Masters title in 2005... though never backing that up... like Paris (Bercy) is the equivalent in last years and we all know that Nadal plays deflated towards the tail end of the year... still, he was far from repeating that feat, even in 2013, his recent best year.

Agree Nadal indoors here, but he isn't that good indoors anyway. No indoor title for nearly 10 years.

The one who actually has a title on the surface? Nadal 1, Murray 0.

Just ask yourself this - who is the best player that Murray has beaten on clay?
Best players Nadal has beaten indoors : Federer and Djokovic.
