Players who've achieved their best results on their weaker surfaces (and vice versa)

Are there any players on tour who've had their best career results on one of their weakest surfaces or underachieved on their best surface?

Jennifer has won more big titles on clay than on regular (non rebound ace) hardcourts. Even though clay isn't her worst surface, I would count her.

Is there anyone else?

Sylvia Farina Elia reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, on grass, which is her worst surface.
She's never gotten past the 4th round at the other slams.

Well, Conchita's worst surface is by far carpet but her only Grand Slam win actually came in the most unexpected one

I wouldn't exactly say grass is Silvia's worst surface, she doesnt really have preferences, or so i think...

How about Conchita Martinez winning Wimbledon but not winning the French Open?

Lina K got to the quarters of the french.......its her worst....i guess you could say that last yrs toronto might be her best result...but in slams...it would be this!!

NOT putting anyone in here cause they lose....im cursing them.....in that case GO JUSTINE and SHARAPOVA!!
But if i were to wish luck to someone: i would like to see k-lina not sucking...and i would also wish luck to davenport...bartoli..ivanovic...hantuchova...demen tieva...kirilenko.......dulko...gullickson....pier ce...spears..mirza..Irvin...Peng...

Chanda's best slam result last year was on clay And she also won Madrid.
You would think that with her game she would have had at least one good run at Wimbledon by now
