Dan you again forgot the Perrier Cup: not a tournament but an important event and of course must be considered for the balance.

I have corrected myself: Rosewall was 6:1 against Hoad on clay in 1958 (4:1 in Perrier Cup, 1:0 in French pro and 1:0 at Scheveningen).

Considering the later years of Hoad's career (1961 to 1964) I guess that Rosewall has the edge on general clay playing.
