Also regarding Nusslein - shouldn't he be higher? He won the world Professional Championship on clay in 1933 and also won the US Pro when it was played on clay in 1934. Plus twice winner of French Pro in 1937/1938. That is 4 major pro titles on clay.
Timnz offered evidence that Koželuh has the equivalent of 10 important clay tournament titles, and Nusslein has 4.

Shouldn't Koželuh be ranked higher?

Did Nusslein win the equivalent of 9 clay majors?
