Question Why Does Patty Schnyder Always Play Horrible @ Wimbledon

She has made 3r once in 10 attempts
She has made 2r 4x
She has lost 1r 5x
Is she the WTA's version of Marcelo Rios, who said that grass is for cows
If she is so bad at it, should she be demoted in terms of seeding

1996 1R loss to Pierce (14) 63 62
1997 1R loss to Woodroffe (WC, ranked #242) 64 64
1998 2R loss to Cara Black (ranked 108) in 3s
1999 1R loss to Dechy in 3s
2000 2R loss to Suarez in 3s
2001 3R loss to Davenport (3) 62 63
2002 2R loss to Martinez 61 63
2003 1R loss to Mandula 76 63
2004 2R loss to Gagliardi (ranked 115) in 3s
2005 1R loss to Serra Zanetti (ranked 83) in 3s

Her loopy strokes and lack of agression tend to hurt her.

Huge backswing, likes high balls, plays with topspin. Suppose she could always pull a Conchita Martinez on us an freak out the pundits. Unlikely though.

She's kind of a "stoner girl" from Switzerland. Needs to be a little more amped up to play on grass.

I love Patty...but grass is not for her.

She just hates grass. so she plays like shit.
but I'm pretty sure she could have some nice results if she really wanted to play..
I mean, she has a good serve, and nice shots..

I thought it was Ivan Lendl, who said grass is for cows.


Oh and can't we get a limit on the number of threads this troll can start?

No.

OMG breaking news, Patty doesn't play well on grass...

Talk about something that has been known for a while.

at least he brought some interesting statistics with him, I wouldn't really call it trolling if he can be bothered to research all that.

Yup, that's at least something positive.

But it's so obvious that he/she starts threads just to show his/her hate in most cases and in some rare ones his/her love.

No.

Some give warnings, personally I'm moving towards banning outright.

SloKid, pierce0415 and others, I would draw your attention to the ignore user feature.

Because her games centers on making her opponents feel uncomfortable with all her lefty topspin. The grass kinda deflates that advantage.

Not anything new.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong
