Patty Schnyder's Diary

Patty Schnyder's Diary

Current world No.13 Patty Schnyder is in Warsaw, Poland this week, competing as the No.4 seed at the J & S Cup. She has decided to share what it is like to play on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour by providing fans a glimpse into her life with this WTATour.com Online Diary. 27.4 2005

Easy morning, I slept until 9 o`clock and went to breakfast with my husband and coach Rainer. My hitting partner Marc had breakfast earlier and went for a walk in the nearby city center, which he told me on our ride to the tennis stadium at 11.30. The young driver had one of his own techno CD`s ), so we were finally awake!

Today's practise was a short mix of everything, because tomorrow the tournament is gonna kick off for me. Some extra dropshots and winners. And don`t get upset Patty with all the bad bounces on those courts, I told myself couple times!!!!

Time for lunch with Rainer and Marc. I checked some match scores and saw some points before leaving to my cooking session at the Whirlpool tent, one of the Tour's sponsors. Together with a Polish cook, we baked some pastries. I had to put the prepared filling and put the pastry into the oven, the newest model, but easy to handle. The media took some pictures and some fans asked for autographs.

Before leaving the club, I left some racquets with the stringer, but could not yet book a practise court for tomorrow's warm up since the schedule wasn`t out yet. Around 5.30 Rainer and I had some coffee at the hotel bar, played our favorite card game and talked about tomorrow's match. I also had a nice and funny sms chat with one of my best friends at home.

Tonight was the player's party. Very nice food and good music, but we would also have liked to watch the Champions League semifinal soccer match between Chelsea and Liverpool. Especially Marc my hitting partner, he`s a passionate Barca fan, because Barcelona lost to Chelsea!!!!

C U Soon,

Patty

I like Patty and I can now see how her and her kooky husband get along. At the FCC he totally jammed to the upbeat music they were playing in the stadium. It made it seem to me that he was kind of an upbeat laid back kind of person. There was also another guy always with him so I guess that was Marc.

sms stands for short message service.

i'd say 99.9% of people here just call them texts tho.

How can anybody not love Patty?. She's a great person. Petting cats
in Doha, cooking pastries, tanking a few matches ever so often
or playing out of her mind making everyone look like mere
mortals among tennis Gods, swearing at Conchita Martinez when she
has the time to do so, and having nice SMS chats with her Swiss friends
back home.

i think the Europeans and ex-patriots are the ones behind the times. It's called TEXTING.

Greeny you're probly one of those US expats who writes the date backwards when he goes abroad. I swear i am gonna hunt you down and drag you back to Southern Cal, kicking and screaming and i'm gonna make you wear one of those stars and stripes bandannas that David Wheaton used to sport back in the day.

Have you learned how to use the metric system in America yet?

even though there is a general feeling of disapproval for us fans about her relationship with rainer i have to say that she seems pretty happy.

and besides, if you put it in writing, its morwe convenient and understandable.


"texting" or text often confuses readers, while sms particularly identifies with sending messages thru mobiles!

and imagine how much character spaces you can save using the shortcut "sms"
