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?

Chanda's best slam result last year was on clay :confused: 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
