I believe that Rosewall leads Hoad on clay. Altogether I counted 83:59 matches in Rosewall's favour.

Hoad also beat Orantes in 1970 at Madrid 6-3,6-3 before losing to Santana in four sets.
Certainly. I tend to think of Hoad as a grass-court player or power player (on hard court)--my closed-minded thinking.
