As long as we don't have the surface of the many 1960s matches between Hoad and Rosewall you can't claim that Hoad had the edge on clay overall.
I strongly guess that among the 25 matches R and H have played in the early 1960s (Rosewall won about 20 of them) there were also some claycourt matches.
You even omit Rosewall's 1962 Geneve victory!!!
