The Patty Schnyder Story
Patty Schnyder has played professional tennis for a number of years. Her winnings total about $10 million. But reports surfaced this week that Swiss authorities are looking for the player and her husband because of outstanding debts totaling CHF 379'260 .86. The creditors include banks, credit card companies, debt collection company, a trust company and tax authorities - even the Billag wants money according to the Swiss tabloid Blick. It's rumored that the police investigation began when Schnyder's husband was unable to come up with eight Porsche's he'd promised to a group of investors. How this will affect her at Charleston this week remains to be seen. As many know Rainer Hofmann, Patty's husband, has been implicated in fraud before. No charges were pressed.
