Re: does anyone still take patty schnyder seriously?

Honestly, I never did. She did well to get back into the top 10, but I never thought she was a huge threat to win any big tournament she entered. The odd time here I thought she could/would upset a top player, but I never considered her a threat to beat 3 - 4 good players in a row to win a title like Miami or a Slam.

No. Her form the past few months has been so poor and her attitude has been even worse. Such a shame as she promised so much back in 98.

This is my cool signature

Re: does anyone still take patty schnyder seriously?

I think that any player takes any opponent seriously.

I still consider her a threat. She has that tricky lefty game and the variety and she does beat the top players, but not on a consistent basis. Sometimes her attitude seems to be "Why bother trying". When she is down against a player, particularly venus, she just seems to throw in the towel. I think she has the game to win a slam, at least Roland Garros. I just think she needs the belief that she can do it.

Re: does anyone still take patty schnyder seriously?

Not really, when she was ranked in the top 8, you always wanted your fave to land in her quarter at the Slams, she's talented, but doesn't have enough weapons/consistency...

Re: does anyone still take patty schnyder seriously?

I always saw her as a player that could trouble the top players at times, but never pull off enough big wins in big moments to worry too much about... She is a great player, but just isn't at the same level as the other top players.

Like someone else said, she was always the top 8 seed you hoped that your fave drew in a big tournament b/c it was the best draw you could hope for...

Re: does anyone still take patty schnyder seriously?

gah, and i am fed up with all her goals that she always sets on her website, because she nearly never achieves any of them...

you know, you cant be mad at her. she's too sweet, so you feel for her and then she lets her you down... and you get all GRR...

like when she could have blasted henin off the court... she was one point away. for god sakes she can serve up to 190 km an hour. hit an ace and go shake hands...
