Schnyder out of Melbourne

14th seed Patty Schnyder has made an early exit from the Australian Open, taken out by Virginie Razzano, who defeated her 6-3, 6-1. I (thankfully) did not get to see this match, but I suspect the wind had at least something to do with Schnyder's dismal result. Schnyder's unfortunate second round result brings to eight the total number of seeds who have gone out.

I like Amelie in red, too. Let's hope we get to see a lot of that dress.

I am really disappointed about Patty, as you can imagine. I heard there was a lot of wind, and Patty probably doesn't handle wind as well as some other players. Safina cannot handle wind very well, and may well be the undoing of her.
