Sorry, but that`s complete bullshit

Tamira played some of her best tennis of her career on outdoor hardcourt !

At WTA Dubai in 2007 she qualified for main draw, beat Top 25 Srebotnik in straight sets and then only lost to #2 Henin 4-6 7-5 6-1 in an amazing match.
Tamira also won her first WTA title at Portoroz in 2006 - an outdoor hardcourt tournament ! As a 15-year-old girl, where she beat Benesova 6-1 6-2.
At WTA Bali in 2008 Tamira reached the final with wins over excellent players like Grönefeld, Errani, Pennetta and Hantuchova, only losing to Schnyder in final.
Tamira also played great tennis at US Open in 2007 where she reached R4, beating Schiavone and Schnyder in fantastic matches, only losing to Chakvetadze.
Other good wins at US Open where in 2008 when Tamira upset Kirilenko and in 2010 when she defeated Safarova, both strong wins over talented players.
Another example how well Tamira can play on outdoor hard is Aus Open 2008 R1 match vs Jankovic. It was a high-quality match. Tamira only lost 2-6 6-2 12-10.

Tamira`s worst surface by far is clay. She only won 1 main draw match in career at FO !

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
