here's an article from swiss newsspaper tagesanzeiger.
sorry, but WTF, patty?? :mad: . hubert choudury was the man who brought her into the top 20 again after she had fallen down so badly. maybe some problems between him and patty's boyfriend rainer hofmann? bingo! :rolleyes:
it's all a bit pathetic IMO.


Patty Schnyder: Trennung von Coach
Patty Schnyder hat die Zusammenarbeit mit ihrem französischen Coach Hubert Choudury beendet. Als Gründe gab die 24-jährige Baselbieterin unterschiedliche Auffassungen über Trainings- und Turnierplanung an.
Tennis-Resultate

Bis und mit dem Turnier von Amelia Island nächste Woche wird Schnyder interimsmässig vom gebürtigen Brasilianer Raul Ranzinger betreut, der im Moment als Trainer von Janette Husarova (Slk) und und Schnyders langjähriger Freundin Barbara Schett (Ö) amtet.

Choudury war bereits in der letzten Woche am Dienstag nach dem frühen Ausscheiden Schnyders in Sarasota via Schweiz nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt und hatte dafür familiäre Gründe geltend gemacht. Allerdings kursierten in Nordamerika Gerüchte, die besagten, der Elsässer sei heimgereist, weil Schnyders Lebensgefährte Rainer Hofmann ihm Lohnzahlungen wiederholt nicht oder nicht rechtzeitig überwiesen habe.

Schnyders Mediensprecher Marco Mordasini, der keinen leichten Job hat (speziell, weil Hofmann immer wieder Schweizer Medienhäusern mit Klagen droht), mochte diese Gerüchte nicht bestätigen: «Finanzielle Gründe haben bei der Trennung keine Rolle gespielt.»

Die Zusammenarbeit von Schnyder und Choudury hatte im Frühjahr 2001 begonnen, als die Schweizerin in der WTA-Weltrangliste bis auf Rang 52 zurückgefallen war. Mit dem Franzosen als Trainer steigerte sich die Baselbieterin bis auf Position 13. In diesem Zeitraum gelangen ihr unter anderem der Turniersieg in Pattaya 2001, die Finalqualifikation in Charleston 2002 und der Turniersieg in Zürich im letzten Herbst.

«Ich konnte von der Zusammenarbeit mit Hubert Choudury viel lernen und profitieren», sagte Patty Schnyder. Die erwähnten Gründe für die Vertragsauflösung sollen aber auch im zwischenmenschlichen Bereich Spannungen gebildet haben, so dass eine weitere Zusammenarbeit für beide Seiten nicht mehr tragbar gewesen sei.

Schnyders Tendenz im Ranking war zuletzt negativ. Nach ihrem frühen Ausscheiden in Charleston wird sie aus den Top 20 fallen. Seit ihrem Sieg in Dubai gegen die Australierin Nicole Pratt vor zwei Monaten erreichte die Schweizerin nur dank Freilosen zweimal die 2. Runde.

well in manys ways this could be a good thing. i hate to say it but i think if patty starts performing badly again she might see that hoffman is being a destructive influence like she eventually did with harnecker. lets just face it, patty has issues. she is a really nice person and all, but i think that some really bad parenting has to be a factor in all this never ending mess which is patty's personal, and unfortunately tennis, life. i don't think choudry is all that good either, because it was inevitable in many ways that patty would start performing at least half the level that her ability allows for. i really just wish melanie moliter or somebody would take patty under their wing and that somebody would smuggle her out of hoffman land and brain-wash her into looking for normal rellationships with men instead of seeking out father figures all the time.

who knows with patty. i can safely say that i am glad i am not her. i find it so funny when i hear people complaining about the inconsistancy of their favourites because bar perhaps majoli no other player has been more painful to support than patty, and at least iva fans got a grand-slam! she has been my favourite player since i was 13 and she probably always will be, but i will turn twenty at the end of this year, and the years as a patty-fan have taken their toll, to the extant that events like this neither shock or upset me.

Let me say something:

I was at Brasil Open 2002 and after Patty lost to Danilidou, she left the court and she and her boyfriend had a hard discussion in front of a lot of tennis fans.
It was quite nonsense her boyfriend scremed a lot with her.
It was really shocking.

after it she started walking and the guy continues to scremed and she talking with herself.
She was very angry and rush her racket bag and it almost hit my legs.
I was walking and she was on my back.
She left her bag on the floor and she contnied to walk.

It was really shocking.

exactly what I was afraid of... if person has parents that are abusive in someway (and I think Patty's were/are) they often choose an abusive partner :sad: poor patty

I am shocked and enraged from reading this - I never had a high opinion of Hofmann but this is the first time I have ever heard about Patty being abused by him :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

I forgot to say : the path (where they were), was the same path the people (tennis fans) are walking around the courts.

and when she was on court(playing) he made some strange signals to her like he was trying to coaching her.
It was very funny because looked like he pis*#d her off.

another thing, he smoked a lot.
