The South African version of "hardcourt" was, like the Australian, a type of dark shale clay, so this would count as clay.
It still looks like an edge for Hoad lifetime on clay against Rosewall, especially as we have to exclude the two Cannes wins, which were not on clay.
The South African "Hardcourt" is not the British and Australian (clay) "Hardcourt"!
