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!!!
I strongly guess that most of the European scores were not on clay. We need some real evidence. When I looked at Cannes, it failed the test.
