Patty Schnyder will retire soon !!

The director of Strasbourg asked Rainer Hoffmann if Patty would like to come to Strasbourg this year, and he responded to him that tennis was not a big priority any more and that Patty and him do want to start a family soon and therefore, Patty's career will end soon !

Re: Patty Schnyder will retire soon !!

But that means that suddenly all the top 16 players are all really tough!

Oh wait Marions still hovering around the place

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Patty Schnyder will retire soon !!

Wow, thats quite a specific answer. Not surprising really, I think being out of the top-10 has demoralized her. It'll be sad to see her go though, she really added something to the tour.

Re: Patty Schnyder will retire soon !!

Rainer also said he was Chakvetadze's coach

plus he's a convicted felon so i'll wait until Patty says something.

The thought him having sex with anyone makes me want to puke

Re: Patty Schnyder will retire soon !!
