I agree if they played 11 times on clay that Pete would find a way to win 1 or 2. Pete is a very underrated clay court player. His biggest problem on clay is he lacks consistency, but he has the ability to beat a top clay courter, and he tends to get up for the top guys on clay and always make it competitive.
If Pete ever made a French Open final, I would have backed him to win it, simply because he along with Borg are the best match players of the open era.
