Top 20 all-time on clay is about right for Fed. He would have won more were it not for Nadal, but having said that, he wouldn't have run riot - past clay greats like Kuerten (as he showed in the FO 2004), Lendl and Wilander would still probably have beaten him, at least some of the time.
I didn't see him in the list (
) so I thought he wasn't even top 40! My bad. N°19 is a bit low for me but I'm not shoked. I will have closer look at some name I'm not familiar with though.
