Why, oh why, oh why...do certain otherwise-learned people cling to the canard that Nadal "wasn't supposed to" win a non-clay Slam?

As a seven-freaking-teen year-old, he straight-setted Roger Federer on the Miami hard-courts 6-3, 6-3.
[ Y'know...The Roger Federer who finished that year ranked #1 with a record of 74-6? ]

Did any serious pundit, in their post-match write-up the next day, pen something like
"Despite this shocking upset, the Spaniard doesn't have any real future outside of the confines of European clay."

I'm...guessing...NOT.
