Patty Schnyder retires

Is she only 40? She seems to have been a 30-something for years and years.

I admire the tenacity in her game. She was never a player who you would ''count out'' even if she were a set and a break down.

She had her own very distinct style of play. Not many players have that, I think.

40 seems like a good age to hang up your racquet. Surprised she attempted such a late comeback really.

Did she mention a reason to retire?. I thought she just made a comeback this year?
I remember her for being an elegant lefty who got a relation with her much older coach. Like Seles who married with a much older man.
Maybe Patty had to find extra income to pay for her divorce. Now she could try on the senior tour so i could meet her ;)

She's "hot" like ice cream. She's AZ's beard anyway.
Just imagine Germany vs Switzerland in the final mixed doubles match: two guys with beards, beard of one of them, and a clueless Fräuein Kerber in between.

I really liked her game. She had a lot of variety & lefty topspin, so she was very interesting to watch. But my fav PS moment was against Conchita Martinez. I only caught the end (in r/t) when she wouldn't shake her hand, and called her a bwitch, which was deleted from this 1 minute clip...

Meeee too. Hi, friend! She'll be missed for her athletic game, and world class bitchiness. That's what I want on my tombstone:

"SHE WAS A REAL *****. AND WE'LL MISS HER FOR IT."

Or engraved in script on my urn. ;^)B

Slightly unusual circumstances in another Schnyder match, this one from much later in her career. Partner Rainer Hofman also comes onto the court:

What about 'she was a darn pretty looking real whatever else you want to write'

I couldn't get it to load, but was that the one where he kicked Hantuckova's water bottles as he "exited"?! Classy guy. I think Patty was actually trying to be a "peace maker" that time. ;^)B

That's the one. And you're right, Patty was definitely trying to calm Rainer down but wasnt above giving Hantuchova a drive-by handshake at the end of the match just to keep things spicy.
