Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

A thread to discuss all thing's Patty in Australia next year

Patty will start of her run in Hobart

http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/News....se&newsid=5053
World No. 14 Patty Schnyder will headline the Moorilla Hobart International in January.

Schnyder will return to the Apple Isle, where in 1998 she walked away as champion.

Moorilla Hobart International Tournament Director Michael Roberts said today, “It will be fantastic to welcome Patty back to our event. She would have to be one of the most consistent players over a number of years on the tour. Having spent eight years in the world’s top 20 highlights she is a class player “

Schnyder has made the fourth round or better an astounding 21 times at Grand Slams; this includes quarterfinals at both the French Open and US Open in 2008. She has amassed almost USD$7.5 million in prize money.

Schnyder would have fond memories of Hobart. She won the first title of her career here in 1998, which kick started her breakthrough year on the Sony Ericsson WTA tour. By the end of that year she had recorded five tour singles titles and made her top 10 debut.

In 2009 she will be hoping the tournament can once again catapult her into the world top 10 and provide her with the perfect preparation as the lead in to the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open.

Work is currently underway at the Domain Tennis Centre with new Plexicushion courts being laid in preparation for the January event.

“The new courts will bring the tennis centre into line with the rest of the AO Series events and will provide all players with the best opportunity to prepare for the Australian Open, on the same courts, in a similar climate.

“With five of the current top 10 women having played in Hobart, the tournament has the reputation of showcasing the stars of our game,” Roberts said.

“We pride ourselves on presenting a boutique event that provides spectators and players with a great atmosphere and some of the best views in world tennis.”

The full player line-up, to be released at the start of December, is sure to provide a spectacular week of entertainment for Tasmanian tennis fans.

Re: Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

I guess she really liked going to Gold Coast because I figured she would play Brisbane. What's the purpose of this thread as opposed to just posting in her cheering thread? Doesn't matter to me I just don't see the point.

Will be interesting to see how she starts the season, she has been horrible the past two years in Australia.

She used to play Gold Coast and Sydney, then changed it up and played only Sydney in 2006 (lost to Peer) then changed it up again and played only Gold Coast in 2007 (lost to Li) and now she heads to Hobart? Perhaps she is deciding where in Oz she wants to live when she retires.

Re: Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

Tuesday 6 January 2009
http://www.hobartinternational.com.a...r-2009-assault
World No.14 Patty Schnyder has arrived in Hobart ahead of the Moorilla Hobart International which gets underway this Friday 9 January.

The first main draw player to arrive on the Apple Isle, Schnyder is getting back into the swing of things after a well earned break since her last tournament in October 2008.

“I chose to stay home over the new year and have one great tournament [in the lead up to the Australian Open], so hopefully I’ll have lots of matches here,” Schnyder said today.

“I’m fresh mentally; it was great to have time at home with a little bit of normal life.”

“I arrived early to make sure I’m 100 per cent once the tournament starts,” Schnyder continued.

Returning for the first time since 1999 Schnyder said it feels good to be back in Tasmania.

“I had a good experience here, first winning, but enjoyed the whole place and the people. I am really happy to be back.”

Schnyder had her first hit on the new Plexicushion courts at the Domain Tennis Centre today, with tournament hitting partner, Tasmanian Andrew Roberts.

“The courts feel good. It was good to practice,” Schnyder said.

As well as relishing the chance to be back on the court the Swiss No.1 is enjoying the Australian summer.

“It is really cold in Switzerland right now so it’s good to be here for the Australian summer and great to be on the tour again.”

The qualifying event will kick start the 2009 Moorilla Hobart International on 9 January with the main draw action underway from 11 January.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Good news that she is confident and ready!
Here's hoping for a big season!

Re: Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

It should come out today, but whether it is released or not is another question. This tournament is a joke...last year the main draw wasn't released till the day it started(I think DutchieGirl got it at the tournament and posted it here). Today's OOP hasn't even been released and play has started.

Patty better win this crap!!

Re: Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

Not an easy first round. I just hope she can get through that, Pironkova usually plays well in Australia.

Re: Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

Not an easy draw, but not the toughest as well since the entry list here was quite strong..
Best of luck Patty, Allez!!

Re: Patty's Australian Assualt (News and Results thread)

Ummmm I think disgrace would be the right word here....


I had a feeling it might happen.. From some reason I think Patty won't have many great moments again (Sorry for the pessimistic, but I do have this feeling ) I hope she proves me wrong, but o far, 4 matches losing streak, especially the last one after saying she's confident and everything, doesn't seem good to me
