Surprised at number of Californian Patty fans

All the crowd is behind her since the start of the match but I guess it's more because of the fact that she is playing against the leggy blonde whose popularity has been going the wrong direction for some time.

It's so easy to cheer for Patty with her game

or is it easier to cheer against Sharapova

The crowd is probably full of rich Californians who have shitloads of money in swiss banks. Of course they like Patty.
Also "Patty" kinds of seems like an american name so maybe thats an attractive feature for them.

Hmmm, I don't like Patty that much, actually. But, okay.

Patty's game is just so beautiful to see, she's got every shot in the book.

I like it, I actually think it pumps her up, remember what she said about the guy who cheered against her loudly in her match against Hingis in IW

as soon as patty hits a drop shot, the fans are on her side because she is an elegant tennis player and very fiesta on court. plus her variety is very beautiful to see


I used to hate her and Dementieva's guts, but now I just hate Dementieva; Patty totally won me over. I love her!
