As I promised. I'll be here cheering on Patty with everyone during
WIMBLEDON. As the grass results from Birmingham has shown, she
can play on the green stuff.

GO PATTY!!!!!

No matter what people say about the Wildcard Problem, I am finally looking foward to seeing Patty play at Wimbledon, It has showed at Birmingham that when she puts her mind to the scene, Grass can be like any other surface, So goodluck at Wimbledon Patty!!!

Much as it may surprise you folks, I agree with the decision. PP hasn't exactly had WC's thrown @ her, and IMO got robbed of the final Gold Exempt for '03 (because of the WTA's case of "Annarexia"). Do I hope she does well there? No. Do I feel she has every right To Try, based on her ranking (besides Having Had to quit early in Berlin and Rome)? Yes.

I felt a right to make it Crystal Clear that I think since PP got a raw deal re. the '03 Gold Exempt AND had a ranking Well Within the parameters for Wimby, she was morally entitled To The WC.

In other words Rothes, unlike you (who supports all Suisse players come Hell or high water) I support PP when she's right (inc. re. Conchi's Chicanery in Warsaw this year).

what's the point of an ignore list when you can read what the person says if someone replies to it?

This forum isn't based on a Democracy where we argue when Patty is Right or Wrong, It is a forum for Supporters of Patty and, not when the time is right to. No wonder hardly anyone visits here anymore because you have become to much of a burden, you have made it clearly notaceble to fans of Patty that you don't insist on being a fan of her or a true supporter, as in Ordina... hhhhoooopppp on that Rothes or hhhhoooopp sharky

As Switz said Don't go ruining the Michallea Kriaja or Elke Clijsters Fan Base, polluting it with your discharge, otherwise you will make the players unpopular here, like you have done to Patty.

Come now, I've supported the Peppermint Player where I feel she's right, ala the '03 Gold Exempt and re. Conchi's Chicanery. And I've hardly made her unpopular, as many "casual fans" still root for her in livescore threads (Which Was Where I did the 2 "hhhhooopppps" you cited above, not here BTW).

Re. Elke, God Bless her in retirement, but the Lei Clijsters run quid pro quo re. WC's Was Wrong. (When the retiring Els Callens was almost the "odd woman out" @ Antwerp this year till Flipper got hurt, even the Flemish posters were pissed).

Re. Misa, I love the kid, she just happens to have lousy parents. Goodness Girl, true fans of "Marie" Pierce, Mirjana Lucic, and Jeca Dokic have positively unloaded on the SOB fathers of These Three!

And I do admit that I can't root for PP to Win While she's loyal to a guy who Took This Then promising 20 y.o. as "payment" for getting the dirt on Harnecker. (And she did NOT have to go back "home" BTW). But as ppl bashed her Wimby WC in GM, I stated my Pro-Patty Position on That. (There and here).

Rothes, you know I strive 2B fair to PP. (And to her fans). You of all ppl should recall the way I told off swissfan (for accusing you of simply taking Blick @ face value) remember? In fact (given that he posted Stamm's Stories from Tages-Anzeiger) I specifically invited Rainer last (Nov, I think) in an e-mail to post his side of things (by Kraushaar, perhaps) or to have whoever translate his own words.

He said OK, but never followed through. I won't repeat again The Things I've taken PP's side on. As you know, I'm personally agnostic, but some religion might do her soul good (in tennis, personally, whatever) and not be "Threatening" To Rainer (as they're now married). And your long record of Pro Patty Posts should convince him that its not a "setup" by me, I presume. Maybe that's why (God?) willed that we "met" here!

Big day, big match. Akiko Morigami is your going to be tough. She's
not going to give up ala Ai Sugiyama.

Patty will have to win it in 2 sets or else. The Japanese players seem
to love long battles, and the longer the match becomes the more
inspiration Morigami will get.

Patty dig deep and you'll do fine. It should be interesting because if
I'm not mistaken Akiko does two handed shots on the forehand
and the backhand.

yeah well said Greeny , but Patty did it, she kept it under control and ran away with the 2nd set. Morigami could have been a tough customer, but Patty totally dominated on her own serve and, unlike in some of her matches, Patty was a factor in almost all of her return games as well. Check this out - after losing her serve in the opening game in about 30 seconds, Patty won 36 out of 49 points on serve (almost 75 percent). Her overall stats (like 12 winners and 15 UEs) were much more modest than in Paris, where Patty had an extremely high number both of winners and errors - showing a lack of patience. Patty can play her game on grass, even though she's far from being a volley specialist. Faster court = more clean baseline & service winners = fewer volleys.

Sorry Rothes but if Patty loses to your girl Emmanuelle on Thursday, i'll be an elephant's uncle . Vamos Patty to the 3rd round!
