Re: Is there a player, who doesn't play grass court tournaments??
Patty never plays lead ups to Wimbledon anymore. there was one year where she made big statements about skipping the whole grass season but then she lost early to Shinubo Asagoe at Roland Garros and ended up taking a wildcard
Patty isn't that bad on grass she just has had a terrible attitude in the past and basically tanked. She finally stopped acting like a baby last year and made the 4th round beating some fairly handy grass court players in Vinci and A Bondarenko. Her forehand is not suited to grass but then again neither Xavier Malisse's and he was within a couple of points from the final one year. If Patty serves well she's difficult to break on grass. Her backhand is also less exposed because her slice is more effective.
It would not shock me if she gets bounced in round 1 this year but if her heart is in it and she gets a decent draw she is capable of making another run.
Sorry but it was less about her attitude last year.........her 1st AND 3rd round oppenents led 4/1 and 5/1 match points in final set and first round led 6/4 4/1 and 6/4,4/6,5/1;she def. got a lil luck,otherwise she has only made it past 2ND round ONCE past 8 years!!!
