JR what's with all the smart-alecky remarks in every damm thread! What makes you think you know any more about Patty's personal situation than what everybody else knows? You DON'T know any more than anyone else knows about it, so why don't you quit going around pretending you're such a $%#&@ moral authority? I've said before that to a certain extent i agree with you, but you're like a broken record, you never say anything new. Maybe Patty's motivation for winning matches IS so that she can give Hofmann the money he needs to keep himself out of jail. So what?? I don't care if she's giving Hofmann cash to buy cocaine, Ferraris and caviar, and then donate the rest to the fricking neo Nazis! We post on this board because we're tennis fans. For whatever reason, Patty's tennis seems to be improving lately. And if she says she's happy and she's competing well on the court and winning matches, well that's good enough for me as a Patty fan.
