It's an amazing logic when you think about it.
Spectacular logic.

For the record, I don't think Vilas is a slouch on clay. Aside from the extremely depleted FO event he won, he made three other Roland Garros final and won a US Open played on (green) clay. But touting him as some kind of unbeatable clay court force (against Federer, a least) when he only won six clay titles with Borg in the draw is a major distortion of historical reality.
