How hard is it for Roger to win a clay slam?

the clay slam that is Roland Garros.....

2004 3R Gustavo KUERTEN (BRA) 4-6 4-6 4-6
2003 1R Luis HORNA (PER) 6-7(6) 2-6 6-7(3)
2002 1R Hicham ARAZI (MAR) 3-6 2-6 4-6
2001 QF Alex CORRETJA (ESP) 5-7 4-6 5-7
2000 R16 Alex CORRETJA (ESP) 5-7 6-7(7) 2-6
1999 1R Patrick RAFTER (AUS) 7-5 3-6 0-6 2-6

With a record 9-6, he has so many bad losses. With 2 clay Masters titles, he already has more clay Masters title than Pete Sampras, so he does have a lot more chances to win one in Roland Garros than Pete. But how good is he on clay exactly against the rest of the tour.

Rogi could win RG with a tough draw. He won hamburg beating many tough clay courters. Rogi simply got outplayed by Guga and couldn't cope with the court and conditions that day. I would be worried if Rogi didn't have great clay prowess but since he does I am not worried.
