"From memory Wilding was undefeated on clay from 1911 to 1914"

According to "The Field" of 12 July 1913, "Mr Wilding has not lost a single on the Riviera for over four years..."

Wilding didn't play on the Riviera in either 1909 or 1910. The last defeat of his there I have is in the Riviera Championships final in March 1908, when Wilding lost to Major Ritchie, 1-6, 6-2, 7-5, 2-6, 8-6.

However, Wilding lost on clay later on in 1908, when Otto Froitzheim beat him in the final of the Homburg Cup, 6-4 ,4-6, 6-4, 8-6. This is the last defeat of his on clay of which I am aware.
