Not realistic in 1954 or 1955. By that time, Trabert and Rosewall and Hoad were hot on clay, hotter than Gonzales would ever be on clay. Gonzales would have to be ranked about fifth on clay that year.
When you rate someone for a slam, you shouldn't claim that they are favoured when they have only an outside chance to win the RG.
