omg really?

crap :( :(

where did u get that draw Master Lu???

It's true. Patty withdrew. Maybe because of fatigue.

If you check the draw from the WTA website, it shows Q/LL in Patty's place.

so two LL now :eek:

I called now to Linz and they don`t know anything about a withdraw from Patty...

Oct 21st, 2002, 08:06 AM
well, looks like the draw just got easier for Anastasia :)

After looking at the draw I thought Patty would have a very hard time against Myskina but I'm more relieved that she withdraws because if she unfortunately loses her confidence will be brought down again, and I hope she can carry a great confidence into LA, which she is quite safe to enter. Think of the Maleeva winning Moscow and then lost 2 first round matches in a row, I think Patty has made a smart decision.

Patty is 100% safe for LA anyway

Oct 21st, 2002, 09:57 AM
Happy Guy : That is exactly what I was thinking :) I wouldn't have wanted to see Patty loosing in the 1st round...and we all know it would have been a possibility against Anastasia ;)

so patty has qualified then?

If Patty is guaranteed LA, then she pulled out of Linz figuring she neeeded the rest to make noise at the Tour Champs.

Oct 21st, 2002, 11:43 AM
I think it was a wise decison :) She must still be "schocked" by this win and I think it's better for her to rest :)

patty's too fat that's why she needs to rest after getting stretched by lindsay to three tight sets ;)

No matter how big some you guys say Patty is, she beat Serena and Lindsey this year. How many skinny fit players can say that!
