Patty Schnyder, who is said ruined, is not found today. Between lifestyle choices disturbing and catastrophic financial management of its gains, the former player has accumulated disappointments. Back on the foggy history of the Swiss

For the past few years she was going around the tour like Patty Soprano. I for one hope she don't have to cut her beautiful hair if she need to be incognito

Anyway. I am fan of Patty and I hope things work for the best for her but somehow, I doubt it

It says Patty and Rainer have disappeared from their apartment. They couldn't find them when they went there to take the rest of what they had, as they were full of debts and they hadn't paid for the location for months. Patty and Rainer are thought to be in Germany or in Australia.

May 13th, 2012, 07:43 PM
The article says that there is a court summons for Rainer Hofman and that their appartment has been emptied and the goods auctioned, as they have not kept up the payments. In the meantime, Rainer and Patty have disappeared, there have been rumours they are in Australia or Germany but nothing has been confirmed. Eric Van Harpen is quoted as saying that Patty was a warm-hearted person, but had no sense of judgment and that would make 'ten bad decisions out of ten'. It mentions that she first fell under the influence of her 'guru', former Scientologist Rainer Harnecker, about whom her father Willy said: 'I am 100% persuaded that she is totally bewitched, that she is in love against her will'. Apparently, Willy hired Rainer Hofman as a private investigator to look into Harnecker, but this spectacularly backfired when Hofman went off with Patty. Hofman himself had been put on probation for three years in 2002 for fraud, embezzlement and forgery of documentation. Looks like Patty is on the run!!! :eek: Is she going to join Capriati, Bohmova and Marsikova in the Passing Shot to Mug Shot Brigade????

Complete translation of that article
What has become of Patty Schnyder? No one seems to know. Often considered bizarre, her behavior is now honestly worrying. The 31 year old has completely disappeared leaving nothing behind her but a great sense of wasted potential. She had everything to continue living her life after tennis. After 16 years as a professional player, the Basel native had won enough (8 419 111 dollars,16 tournament victories (11 in singles and 5 in doubles), she also had several commercial contracts, enough to live a peaceful life. Now there is absolutely nothing left of that and her remaining estates were recently put to bid.

Gifted with a great intelligence on court where she managed to stay in the top 20 for almost 13 years, the left handed appeared to be not as smart when it came to her private life. A man who has known her since she was a child tells us how she got where she is now. This man is Eric van Harpen, her first trainer. "Sometimes I feel like she doesn't use any logic. She is a really warm person, a really nice person but she has a sad tendency to always make the wrong decisions. Some people when they need to make an important choice ten times, will make the right choice those ten times. But for her, it's the complete opposite." He sadly stated in Sonntags Blick.

" She is completely possessed"

Her "bad choices" as Van Harpen puts it, it's first of all that relationship with a certain Rainer Harnecker, a troubled character with a past in Scientology. Many see him as Schnyder's guru. "Sometimes she seemed absent, as if she was hypnotised. She was no longer herself. I am 100% convinced that she was totally possessed, she was not truly in love with him. That wasn't my Patty" her father Willy Schnyder once said. The latter, protective, hired a private detective, Rainer Hofman, however this did not turn out in his favor as it was with that Rainer that Patty formed a relationship. In 2002, her lover was condemned in Germany for three years for fraud...

A warrant for arrest for Rainer Hofman has been issued and the apartment where they lived in- the bill no longer being paid- was emptied and the couple is now nowhere to be found. Some rumours state they are in Germany, others say they are in Australia. With Roland Garros coming up, it will soon be a year that the Swiss retired. It was exactly on 28th of May 2011, after her last match witch she lost against the Romanian Sorana Cirstea. Patty Schnyder had then declared that "tennis would always be the greatest love of my life"

I did enjoy her play and perhaps her irrationality (losing to Kournikova because she hated her fame, etc.), but I hope she can figure something out and live a good life (i.e., not in prison).

Even if she's in all this debt, I'm sure she could get a coaching job that would pay around $100,000/year if she even casually looked. World Team Tennis would love to have her for a few seasons. There's also Bundesliga, French and Czech interclub matches. Even retired, she's still good enough to be selected for these teams. She could probably fill stands for one or two exhibition matches a year in Switzerland with Hingis. There are plenty of opportunities for Patty to make money and pay off this debt within a few years. It just doesn't make sense why she's running away like this, even if she's choosing to stand by her husband.

Erh, not sure about that. For those who followed Patty's threads on TF in the past years, there were a poster named Pattylover or something like that who was really obsessed with Patty and knew lots of personal stories regarding to her. That poster was appeared very bitter about the relationship between Patty -Hoffman and cared ( by his words) for Patty, so he was probably Rainner Harnecker in real life who lost Patty for Hoffman. Then there was also a poster who registered up only to get to Pattylover (? ) in an intense fighting in which PL threaten to kill the new -short-termed- poster who was believed to be Rainner Hoffman. For this threatening act, the PL poster got banned from this message board, then registered again under another nick, not sure if it's J.R, or not.


J.R is probably someone closed to Patty's family who knows lots about Patty and despise both Patty's Rainners. ( There must be some errors with those names above, but doesn't change the story's essence).

I remember when Schnyder's hubby ran onto the court and kicked over Hantuchova's water bottle about 5 years back. It was at that point that a lot of people understood that this guy is really bad news. I also heard, and this is admittedly just rumor, that the WTA's security people gave him a warning for stalking Anna Chakvetadze around the same time in 2007 or 2008.

I waited to post ITT 2C if I heard anything about the Crazy Couple's whereabouts, but I haven't. (I will if I do). In terms of (schnyder lover was the guy banned in '03 for "threatening to kill" Herr Hofmann) he was allowed to re-register as switz a couple of months later, and basically "retired" here when she did from the tour; his other fave Chanda being long gone, of course.

In terms of why the Strange Suissie would stay on the lam with her Frankfurt Felon, I have no idea, as Suisse Tennis would certainly give her a coaching job if she showed up and asked for one. BTW, while I know the Peppermint Parents, I never worked for them on this (or anything else). Maybe she's hiding out with Blonde Babsi, maybe they're in Australia, maybe she cut off her :silly: hair and looks like Denisa. :tape:

In other words, not even the Patty Parents know where she is?

I'm somewhat sceptical to the hiding-in-Australia theory: ♫♪♫ Leaving on a jet plane ♫♪♫ Europe->Oz would leave a paper trail (prolly electronic) which the police would/should have their hands on now if Peppy&Felon are badly wanted criminals. (Of course, the Helvetian rozzers are perhaps not sharing everything they know with the tabloids...). Europe seems more likely, particularly Germany, since the Felon would likely have some connections there who'd help with the hiding. Unless, of course, they've actually done the whole shebang with fake IDs, private aeroplanes, stick-on mustaches, etc. and hit Brazil or some other hideable-in destination!? But where'd they get the money for that?

She was so isolated on the tour that not even one other WTA (or ATP) player was invited to her wedding in 2003. Though the Peppermint Puzzle did seem close to Babsi, the blond one may have not liked her Deadbeat Dad husband. (Or the latter's ex-coach and husband Josh Eagle may not).

Other major Suisse Speilers (like Fedex and Martina II) likely won't get involved. Marti's Mother Melanie Molitor (and defacto stepfather Mario Widmer) don't want her near ppl like the Career Conman, especially after the coke "bust". And Rogi goes back to being childhood friends with the Cuckoo Clock's kid brother Danny, who doesn't care for the Convicted Criminal.

I better wrap up here B4 I run out of alliterated nicknames for my Peppermint Pinatas. ;)

They've been estranged from her for years. :shrug:

Shocked. Stunned. WOW. Giving her personality its not like its something unexpected from Patty. Not like she was my fave on tour during her career. But I hope she will manage to settle her life.

Anyway, the most shocking thing is HOW ? How is it possible to get ruined while making millions ? Apparently she is not the only one to make millions and ending up broke. Winston Bogarde is broke...And so are 90% of ex NBA players. How is it even possible ? Are these athletes really that DUMB ? If I'll ever see ONE million dollars, Im not going to ever have a job again- they are making MULTIPLE millions and still manage to end ruined and in debts. How the hell they are spending their money ?

Hey guys, I'm not 100% certain, but I'm 99% certain that Switzerland is just like the USA in terms of not paying your debts. It's not a crime. The police are not going to hunt you down. They can only repossess your stuff and sell it. They can't put you in jail. They probably left Switzerland to avoid having future wages garnished or something like that. Patty is tragic and pathetic, but she's not The Fugitive. :rolls:

lol that was hilarious when i got banned for threatening to kill Rainer! obviously my playful banter was mistaken for a genuine potential homicide by an overzealous moderator. I suspect it was TheBoiledEgg - he never was a fan of mine!

If Patty's in Australia I certainly haven't seen her! I do have to cringe thinking about how much of my youth I wasted discussing her on this forum (and waiting for her to ever convert her undeniable talents into results). Fortunately my life has become a little more well rounded post school/uni.

Sorry to everyone for digging up this random thread. Hopefully Patty sorts her shit out eventually. No reason she couldn't comeback and earn a bit of coin with a few decent runs on clay/doubles.

^Wasn't one of those defeats a retirement? And having a good head-to-head against a certain players doesn't equal a victory.


My point is more this: how did we get to a situation where Shara won RG and Serena is now the overwhelming favorite to win it? In a word, attrition. The players who hung around for years and years, waiting for the other RG contenders to fizzle, are now winning RG. Schnyder could also have beneffited from this phenomenon.

They split, though the divorce seems not 2B formalized yet. He was trying some racket involving breeding racehorses (which he probably no more owned than the yachts and cars of the past).

She's also living in GER, but coaching near Basel once a week. He has a new 27 yo gf (not a pro athlete AFAIK) and maybe the bald guy she's been seen with @ the Bundesliga, etc. matches is her new bf.

In what way was she "not found" :scratch:She was just walking down the street, and then suddenly it was like these glittering light were all around her, and she was gone.
