Hello hoodjem,
apparently you haven't noticed newmark's figures. See in his 2nd post the following quote :

"The list is incomplete and is not meant to be definitive. When Wilding won more than one singles event at the same tournament, e.g. Wiesbaden in the years 1906-08, this is counted as one tournament win. His current total of singles titles is 109, broken down as follows: Grass, 33; Clay, 64; Wood (indoors), 12."

From memory Wilding was undefeated on clay from 1911 to 1914 (but he didn't meet any great American players then given that the latter rarely crossed the Atlantic) : in four years he won at least 24 tournaments in a row on clay.
