Patty's Australian Open Draw

First round-Patty Schnyder SUI (22) vs. Angelique Widjaja INA

Sugiyma & Dechy are the only seeds up to round 4,which Patty has visited a few times at the AO now.

Let's hope she can go one or more rounds better than that in the next two weeks

Patty got a really good draw, bcuz if there's anybody who she can beat playing on one leg, it's Widjaja, who hasn't won a match on the tour in about 8 months. I know Patty lost to Widjaja last year at IW, but since then Angie's career has really been falling apart, while Patty is playing somewhat better. For the second round as well, Alexandra Stevenson is another player that i think Patty can beat even at less than 100% of her fitness. But Llama you forgot about Suarez in the 3rd round - unless Suarez gets upset early, Patty will have a hard time to get through that match if she's not at full strength with her movement. If Patty can get by Suarez then she will definitely have a winnable match in the 4th round, Sugiyama or whoever else she might play there.

Angie hasn't won a match in 8 months??? Indeed, 2003 has been dissapointing for Angie and it was interesting that her best performance was beating Patty - player with the highest ranked she ever defeated! I don't agree with you that she has not won a match in 8 months...In Wismilak Bali, before she lost to Obata in QF, it was obvious that she won 1st and 2nd rounds - over Safina & Garbin! And more, in Tashkent, Dubai & Pattaya - she won all 1st round's matches! Please be careful with stats and facts when you give comment next time...Thanks for letting me to inform you!

From juniors rebuilding Indonesia's tennis!!!

Patty d Widaja 63 57 63

a tougher scoreline than expected but on the bright side i think the fact that Patty was able to come back and dominate at the end of the match after losing the second set, shows that she is probly recovered from the injury.

Yup,excellent job Patty Although with a high ranked opponent it would be wiser to finish the match off sooner,this could be the start of something BIG
Congrats!

It also tells me that the 3 line score would have given Patty Confidence in 3 setters, one of her Notacble Stereotypes is to loose predominatly all the 3 setters she plays, Not saying this one is going to be a turn around, But is good confidence for the next match, who I don't even know who she is playing.

Its a shame because Patty had set points in the Second, again wasn't able to capatalise, though it was on Angie's Serve, She had quite a few games to break but didn't any hoo lets be greatful and happy she got to the second round and good luck.

I thought the same thing Rothes.Patty 3 set record hasn't been great & it's a very good sign that she held her concentration & won the match.The results showed that she was holding her serve easily & was close to breaking Widjaja many times.
As for her next round oppenent it will be Marion Bartoli of France who beat Alexandra Stevenson in straight sets.Does anyone know anything about Marion?
