Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

Patty Schnyder is unsure how long she will continue to play on tour. The Swiss veteran lost in the first round at the Australian Open.

"I haven't made any commitments beyond the next one or two months," she said. "I'll play Fed Cup against Israel and then Doha and Dubai. After that I don't know."

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

Never a fan but she will be missed. Her game is so different and effective when its working.

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

She should at least play out the year. Or until clay seaon ends anyway. Never was a fan of her, but still would be sad to see her pack it in too soon.

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

I actually expected her to announce her retirement after the AO, but maybe she's going to try and play herself into some form before she makes a decision.

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

Not a surprise. I didn't think she'd continue after last year.

Patty I hope she atleast plays through the French Open. I would also like to see her play live one more time this year at The Family Circle Cup

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

She should play RG

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

I'd forecast Patty Playing thru RG; I'll still say @ least thru Charleston, where she had the big run to the 2002 final that she lost to Iva. (Beating Momo, Mahree, Jen, and Serena to get to the F) She could always skip IW and Key Biscayne with claimed injuries to avoid the zero points thing, and finish her career with the 2 green clay events; and would surely get MD wildcards for them if needed.

BTW, I hear that Hoffy isn't even @ the AO (maybe having been fired by the Oprandi's and having given up on landing another player to err, "coach").

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

Patty
this really isn't surprising...
I just hope she makes an effort to play through the French - that's truly the place where she should have her last match

Re: Patty Schnyder unsure about continuing playing career

I feel like Patty is one of those players who still likes being a pro but isn't motivated enough to work really hard and fight through matches tournament after tournament, day after day any more, and that's what it takes these days to even have a chance.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković
