She just seems to go from trouble to trouble. First all that drama with Rainer Harnecker who had her living off orange juice and then she hooks up with the detective who investigated Harnecker. He, Rainier Hofmann doesn't sound any better. He's in court at the moment about some dodgey dealings that involved German Telekom and then her father speaks about not liking Patty's relationship and how he can't accept her living with and not being happy about their engagement and now she says she's had enough and wants to move with Hofmann to Mallorca to escape Switzerland and her family. Hofmann's mother said to Swiss newspaper that Patty was terribly upset, cries the whole day and her nerves are shot.

What a poor poor girl.

Well it might have been the road that she chose which is her decision but she just doesn't seem to see that these men are no good for her and no good for her tennis. I mean since all this mess she has had bad results. Where as before when she wasn't all messed up she had good results and was a promising young player who was set for bigger and better things. I only hope she will see this and get back to being the player that she once was. :)

if she escapes with him isn`t she risking to end up in jail? I hope she is smarter then that and not blinded by love.

Wait a minute....Rainer Hoffmann is a detective??????????????? I have met Rainer... he seemed ok to me. Patty seemed very happy with him in Australia! I didn't know her parents didn't like Hoffmann though... I thought they were ok with him... hmm on second thoughts, I do remember Danny saying he didn't like Hoffmann either... so perhaps they do disapprove... gah... it's a pity because Patty is such a nice person! Patty's Mum seems nice too, but I don't know much about her Dad.

And for those who say she chose that course... she did choose the boyfriend, but she did not choose for her family not to like him or her relationship with him! Bloody Harnecker... man... what I'd do to him if I saw him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr he was the start of all this! :(

I agree with Goran... she may not have the strength or self love to realize she's hooking up with guys who aren't good for her and her tennis has suffered. I remember when she was in the top 20 and playing some really impressive tennis... beating top players. The announcers were saying she was headed for the top ten, the way she was playing. Then all that stuff happened with Harnecker (what a quack!) and her tennis went down the tubes. Did you hear about the needle/skin piercing device he advocated? :rolleyes:

Yes, Hofmann is a detective. He was the German detective who helped arrest Harnecker when there was all that drama about the cult etc that they said that Harnecker was involved in etc. Patty got involved with him straight after that so they have been together for three years and have been engaged since December 2001. Her parents also didn't like the fact that he is ten years older then her and they just don't seem to like him and can't accept the fact that Patty is living with him. From what I have read Patty and Rainer live in Lausen in a apartment only 22 km away from Patty's parents in Bottmingen and that is why they want to go to Mallorca to get away from them. Hofmann said that the have been planning to move to Mallorca for months but now it is actually happening.

This is all making headlines in Switzerland and I only hope that Patty can sort something out with her folks even if she does decide to stay with Hofmann. :)

I hope Patty's doing okay, I've grown to like her more and more over the years and it'd be nice to see her have a good year, especially after she ended 2001 on a nice note winning Pattaya.

It's too bad her family doesn't like Rainer, but I guess if he makes Patty happy that's all that matters? I reckon she can't do much worse than Harnecker anyway!

Hopefully we will see a more confident, consistent, and positive Patty in the new year :)

BTW - She looks great in the photo :)

I think I remember Patty was in tears last year in Pattaya because she had lost her father during that event :sad: .
