(As per Spock in the original StarTrek series) they've already done the Vulcan mind meld. ;)
:eek: Or Patty could get a head transplant from Justine, so she could be mentally tough. :rolleyes: :p But then her "illness" would still be there. :unsure:

And Patty won't probably play Miami :sad:
She wants to focus on the Clay season.
Her goal now is a GC and that's all.
She seems doesn't care anymore about the rankings :bigcry:
For me, that sounds like a retirement for the end of the year or next year :crying2:

Patty Plays Miami if for no other reason than it being mandatory for anyone who ranks high enough. And I still think she might take a WC for Doha when someone inevitably withdraws. In terms of retirement, she's mentioned it as being not too far off since late '04, so she indeed might after (lets say '07).

You Schnyder fans are almost as weird as the player you worship.

This withdrawal sucks. I was eagerly awaiting a Hingis vs Schnyder match, with Peppermint Patty crushing Chucky and proving once and for all who has the most touch and shot variety on the Tour.

This sounds quaint, considering the tournament hog Schnyder is, second only to Petrova (and maybe Hantuchova).

funny i get a very different impression in regards to retirement - i see Patty playing well into her 30s. I know she's stated otherwise a while ago but she's one of the fitter girls on tour generally - wouldn't be bad to go out while playing well still but i think she's still got quite a bit of motivation to play.

I'm quite shocked JR that you think Patty would have any say on this issue. Surely Rainer wouldn't let his "cash cow" go when there's still plenty of money to made ;)

I think Patty still cares about her ranking but she also know that she's got a tier I win buffer over Venus at number 10.

I also would not be surprised to see her in Doha because she's doesn't play Indian Wells so it's going to be a long break if she's waiting until Miami. And we know Patty doesn't like long breaks - i suspect because she has to spend too much time with Rainer :lol:

What's that supposed to mean? I'm not weird. :shrug: :rolleyes:

she's a tournament whore and it finally caught up with her.
At least she is playing, and not doing some fashion show and hanging out with bisexual Rap stars. :rolleyes: :ras:

I feel the same way. I don't see Patty retiring in 2008. For some reason, it just doesn't seem like something she would do if she is so fit and playig so well.

I also don't think Rainer will let her retire. He controlles her life anyway, so she will listen to him. For this one time, I hope she listens to him. :unsure: :speakles: That's rare.

I don't think she will play Doha if she is still ill. But if she recovers in this week, I think there is a small chance that she will play. I don't see her playing until Miami, though. :shrug:

Good point. :lol: Maybe she'll take a year off (especially if she has some significant injury) or simply isn't motivated any more, then come back like Marti did.

And Corswandt, I for one am hardly a "Schnyder fan", I'm just trying 2B my usual fair and balanced self! :p Incidentally, where are Sarah and vogus ITT?
