At her peak in 2000-2002 she either barely played or did nothing after the U.S Open which is the main indoor season, and her only WTA Championship title was in 2008, years past her prime.
From Wikipedia: JH 37-15 career win-loss on carpet (71%)
VW 50-17 career win-loss on carpet (75%)
so not a massive difference. Of course, I am not sure indoors and carpet are equivalent here (I remember Venus lost to Jankovic in 2008 Stuttgart but she is shown as not having played indoors in 2008.

Also, WTA Championships in 2008 were outdoors.
