Yay Dani! :worship: Get back to yourself girl!

:sad: :sad: Babsi

Dani :hearts::worship::bounce:

Jan 20th, 2005, 02:11 AM
I knew this would happen, just a pity they didn't put her on a bigger court for her 2r match, her final ever. But they didn't pay much respect courtwise to Applemans in her last match too. Schett should have got onto a showcourt for her farewell.

bye, bye, babsi :sad: she'll be missed!

nice win from dani

Jan 20th, 2005, 02:13 AM

Probably against Tanasugarn at Miami last year.. she won 7-6 (2) 3-6 6-0

Jan 20th, 2005, 02:21 AM
Well done to Daniela...:bounce:

I feel sad for Barbara...she has been quite a player...:sad:

Go Daniela...good luck for the 3rd round!!!:bounce:

Jan 20th, 2005, 02:22 AM
Babsi:sad: She had a chance to win this too...

Oh well, FANTASTIC career nevertheless...hopefully she has fun in mixed doubles with Julian Knowle and can win a couple rounds there.

Jan 20th, 2005, 02:23 AM
bad score to retire with patty at least she didn't lose to a nothing player. shame she was injured before and only got a couple of week to prepare and still has bruising on her ankle bone.

well done dani though. hard to be happy for her even though she is big favourite of mine.

Wow :eek: this was an amazing match from Daniela, she won 10 games in a row and she hit sooo many winners (41)... and only (28) errors.. this is the best match that Daniela has played in years.. It should of been 6-1 6-0 as she was only 5 for 23 Bp's :rolleyes: won . Into the third round for 3rd straight Grand Slam. Take this form into the next round and you will for sure win!! Goo Danka!!! :bounce: ooo... and BYe Bye Barbara (must of been a way to end your career :devil: )

let's face the truth, Schett has had no impact whatsoever on the tour for the last three years, people were just attached to her for sentimental reasons, because she was a celebrity from an earlier period. It's good that she's moving on with her life.

Jan 20th, 2005, 03:17 AM
It's been a shameful act of ignorance done by the ITF-officials to leave Babsi alone on a ghost-court in her last match ... :fiery:

We'll miss you, Babsi, it's been a wonderful time to cheer for you so often in the last 5 years. :sobbing:
But this time my heart was at Dani's side, pls understand.

Thanks Daniela for prevailing into r3. But diminish those missed bps, omg :o
Congrats !!! :worship:

Rachel McQuillan as a commentator mentioned that Barbara Schett carried an injury for around 6 months now and her doctor told her to stop play tennis. Therefore, she has to retire from the Tour.

Jan 20th, 2005, 03:34 AM
Farewell, Babsi! :sad:

Great win by Daniela, and a great career for Barbara. I think they should've put her on centre, given her a nice farewell.... I would've watched that. It was a pretty good match on paper as well

Jan 20th, 2005, 06:32 AM
Bye Babs & good luck in the future!

Here's something to make us miss Babsi even more.... (got it from the Aus Open site)

"(It wasn't) very emotional until she had match point and then suddenly I had tears in my eyes," said Schett.

"I knew sooner or later I was going to realise that this was my last point of my career which I have been doing all my life."

Jan 20th, 2005, 06:49 AM
very convincing danka!!! :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: i'm so proud of her!!! :kiss: :) :) :) she already have done a better result than last year!! :bounce: :p
