Patty Advances To Stanford Quarterfinals!

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0eof1L8aGN954/610x.jpg
Patty hits a forehand against Raluca Olaru

World #25 and Swiss #2 Patty Schnyder advanced to the Bank of the West Classic quarterfinals and fourth quarterfinal of the year following defeats of Australian Alicia Molik, World #13 Lindsay Davenport, and World #3 Raluca Olaru. Following a brief retirement, Patty made her return this year at the Medibank International in Sydney and like last year has had patchy results. She came closest to her first OWTT title in Birmingham this year when she advanced to the semifinals losing a dramatic match to World #1 Serena Williams in three tight sets. However, she has kept her dreams of that first title with some spot on play this week.

In the first round, she played Alicia Molik known for a big serve and forehand. It was Alicia who started the stronger player using a good slice serve out wide on the deuce court and top spin serve out wide on the ad court for easy points. She took the first set in a tiebreak 7-6[3] taking care of early opportunities and Schnyder errors. However once Patty got her first break on hand she became much more comfortable and able to play her game. Using crafty groundstrokes and getting Alicia on the move, she was able to put the short ball or volley away. Patty ultimately won the match 6-7[3], 6-3, 6-2

In the round of 32, Patty was set to face 13th seed Lindsay Davenport who got a bye in the first round. Like in her previous match, both players came out firing on serve both holding with ease and not facing one break point. Lindsay, who hits one of the cleanest balls on tour, took advantage in the tiebreak finishing the set with a big forehand 7-6[5]. Both players continued to hold serve until the ninth game when Lindsay broke to 15 with a clean crosscourt backhand winner. However missing first serves cost Lindsay as Patty hit strong returns to tie it up 5-5. That was the nail in the coffin as Patty took the set 7-5 and final set 6-2 as Lindsay didnt look like she wanted to fight.

In the round of 16, Patty faced 3rd seed Raluca Olaru. In the past, Patty has had a lot of trouble against her not winning a match. However, with the crowd on her side and some smart play Patty was able to play brilliantly and take the match. Smart serving and great returning brought Patty to a 6-3, 6-3 win. Patty said, Yeah, I played one of my best matches of my career today against Raluca. I used my lefty serve to my advantage today. I used my groundstrokes and took it out of her comfort zone. I also mixed paces used my drop shot well. It was just a great match.

In the quarterfinals, Patty will face American Jennifer Capriati who upset Nicole Vaidisova in the previous round. Patty said, It will be a great match for sure. Im really enjoying my tennis. I really like to play here in Stanford. I like the courts, environment, and the audience is just great. Im happy to have defended my points but I want to go three steps further this year.

Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova who backs up her Wimbledon win with a title here, extending her winning streak to 11 matches. She improves her ranking to #6 after this week. She had to battle today though against a feisty Harkleroad who was having her career-best week here in Stanford. Hantuchova steamrolled the third set after claimng a very tense second set. Good match! :)
