I didn't say Vials is a slouch on clay but Fed as a CC player is at the very least comparable to him and he (Vilas) is nowhere near someone like Guga on clay.
And Fed would certainly not struggle winning sets against Vilas on clay, that's an absolutely hilarious claim when Fed actually won plenty of sets against freakin CC monster that is Nadal.
