Yes and given Lendl's proficiency on carpet, hard courts and even grass, it wasn't as if he was padding out his record on clay by entering every small clay court tournament under the sun when he had bigger fish to fry on other surfaces.

He was also a multiple champion at each of the 4 most prestigious clay court titles away from RG; Rome, Monte-Carlo, Hamburg and Barcelona. Plus he had winning clay court h2hs against Wilander (6-4) and Vilas (7-5), and beat Muster and Bruguera on clay in 1992.

From 1984-1987 his record at RG was W, F, W, W which shows how dominant he was there.
