Patty & Barbara Shett

I was just wondering when Patty & Babs first became friends? It seems through all the turmoil of Patty's past,she has kept Barbara close in her inner-circle,so I was just wondering about the history of their friendship?

Babsi wants 2B a psychiatrist after she retires, so this is her internship!

I tend to view Schett as an even BIGGER headcase than Patty, and not as a stabilizing influence on her. Like i said in the other thread, i kind of wish that Patty would find a different doubles partner, although it's hard to criticize a team that just won a tournament in straight sets. If they keep playing like that together i guess i'll just have to grin and bear it. But remember that doubles partnership does not necessarily = friendship, especially when dealing with women's tennis.

Babsi is the closest "friend" Patty Possibly has in the world, not just The Tour (Rainer's Rules)! Manu Says She's a Peppermint Pal, but I think She Sorta feels sorry for the Bottimgen Brat.

Yeah from what I've heard they are pretty close friends.I remember reading that Babs,felt that Patty was feeling very lonely on the tour & that's why she felt that Patty had hooked up with RainMan #1.
It just seems to be me,while Patty has pushed others away,I wonder why Babs has remained so close.Maybe she doesn't offer an opinion on Patty's personal life?
I don't even know much about Barbara,apart from the obvious,but I've never heard that she's a headcase...........yet : P

As long as Patty is getting comfort out of the friendship, thats all it matters.

Just because you use large words doesn't mean you have a large brain.

Correct, Rothes. In fact I'd much rather let Danny Schnyder vouch for my intelligence, based on the academic mentoring I give him periodically. (As per his Wishes, We Don't Discuss his "family business").

Once again, I challenge you to let Sarah, aka inkyfan (Who Worked With Danny on a PP site B4 "the Rainers" came along) confirm it with him.

See, Rothes, unlike you, I consider "tennis people" (players, coaches, writers, relatives, tour employees, etc.) 2B simply ppl involved in a profession that gets a lot of public attention (though far less than some other sports).

So to me, Danny is just a young man in college (majoring In International Relations) who I occasionally Answer Academic questions from. (I don't write his papers OR tell him what viewpoint To Take, its more "dissecting the questions").

If you Can't Comprehend the fact that "people you've heard of" Aren't All that different Than The rest of us, sorry, that's your problem.
