I did note that the Bleacher report issued a list of clay-court GOATs recently:

Here is that list distilled for the men:
1. Nadal
2. Borg
3. Cochet
4. Lacoste
5. Wilander
6. Lendl
7. Kuerten

It mostly corresponds to our list, but with a two serious oversights, specifically Rosewall and Wilding. As is well-known on here, Wilding was, I believe, entirely undefeated on clay for a number of years.

I submit that Rosewall was an excellent clay-courter, with many clay-court wins to his name.
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure, while the intelligent are full of doubt.
