Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

For some reason, I have never liked her or her game.
She SEEMS rude, arrogant and just mean.
Yet she has so many fans. Why?

What am I missing ?

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

Hater.

I like Patty cause she has beautiful game. She isn't a ball basher and she does everything very naturally.. Like they say on TV: "She makes it looks so easy"
Why she seems rude and arrogant to you?..
If judje on the way she looks, so she looks like a nice person to me..

Dam'n you and JR should be a couple or something..

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

very few play like her these days. I dont like her, though I like her style of play. JustineSchnyder is right,she isnt a ballbasher and has a big swing, which is rarely seen

Don't call me retard.
Let me ask you a question: Which player/s you like?
Ho, and why do you think she's arrogant and mean?

Henin, Schnyder, Jankovic, Aga Radwanska, Cornet

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

If you want a reason to like her, just watch her tennis - she's ridiculously fluid, has every stroke in the book and is an incredible mover. Whether you like her personality or not I'm pretty surprised you don't like "her game" because it's one for the purists.

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...
Hantuchova : Goerges : Johansson : Rybarikova : Li

Learning to love/Liking the look of...
Zakopalova : Lucic : Krajicek : Cetkovska : Cibulkova
Gajdosova : Govortsova : Olaru : Robson : Pliskova

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

I like her cos she is different. She is like the rebel of WTA! And she is wise oncourt.
I don't really like Rainer though.

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

You don't have to like her, if you're not a fan, it's fine. No reason to call other people retards, though. I like her game, it's so different and refreshing, and she looks like a nice girl.

Merci Justine!

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

because she has one of the most complete games with great variety
not just a brainless ballbasher

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

You have obviously been brought up on a diet of one-dimensional big hitting, charmless win-at-all-cost sport.

She might have sucked on the big occasions but Patty is one for the old romantics in all of us.

Fluidity, flair, all the shots, and a lefty to boot - I think they used to call it "the beautiful game".

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

I love her because I think she's hilarious. Some of the things she comes of with are just priceless

I can understand why people don't like her but I think she is one of the greatest characters on the tour. She's herself, and she doesn't act all nice for anyone

I actually think she seems like a nice girl, I just wish she wasn't married to Rainer. I want to kick him in the balls until he can't breathe. She's way to good for him

Tennis-wise, her game is incredible, I think. She seems to have the most natural talent of almost player on the tour, and what people in the thread have pointed out is right - her strokes are so fluid and watchable, with elaborate backswings.

I just wish she would be more aggressive at times. It would really improve her game because she seems to have all the goods to be a slam contender. She has everything, so a little ball bashing here and there could do her no harm. When she is aggressive, her game just starts to fit together. It's brilliant to watch.

If all of this doesn't sway you, just have a look at one of her dropshots

Re: Give me a reason to LIKE Patty S.

She IS smart on court, but I don't think she has a 'complete' game because she is not/can not hit hard.
She's Hingis-like in that way. Crafty, but lacking for TODAYS game.
Top be at the top TODAY you really need harder, more punishing groundstrokes. And she has funny hair.
