Patty is very very talented but lately when I have seen her play she does not fight or have the killer instinct. Her conflict with her parents is very painful and THAT iS TOTALLY zapping her fighting instinct and self-belief on the court. I don't feel it is fair to say she chose this path. Some things are in her control but being hurt by her parents and having pasted in the tabloids is not all her fault. It's very sad.
