Question Patty Schnyder prefers playing Serena over Venus

"I haven’t played her for a long time, but actually I prefer playing Serena than Venus because I think Venus’ backhand is better than Serena’s," Schnyder said. "So I try to play my game over her backhand. I hope that she’s not a hundred percent and just give it my best shot."

Haven't heard that in a few years....

Wow....when did she say that? in 00/01?......
Because Serena has outgrown Venus by miles, but Patty is pretty smart, I guess Venus is the one harder to beat.

Interesting.....might be some truth there..because Serena´s backhand is good, but Venus´s is KILLER. I hope she is not 100 %, huh Patty?!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Patty's lefty so she hits her forehand to players backhand, so of course she'd want to play Rena over Vee. Plus, she beat Serena once so she thinks she can do it again.

Stay away from the crack Patty.

(Maybe that's why her hair is so f*cked)

Patty also said Serena's forehand was better than her backhand. Lefties are just backwards in so many ways....

Wow....that's interesting, I guess she is trying to psych Serena out....
Hopefully this will be brought up when Serena does her interview.
