First Players Rosmalen Announced [Coría, Nadal, Dementieva, Molik and more]

Today the first names for the Ordina Open in Rosmalen / 's-Hertogenbosch have been announced. I will translate the article from the website:




Quote:
Coria, Haas, Nadal, Schalken, Dementieva, Molik, Pierce en Krajicek naar Rosmalen
Quote:
[11 april 2005]Het internationale grastennistoernooi, de Ordina Open, presenteert dit jaar een aantrekkelijk spelersveld dat bestaat uit gerenommeerde top 10 spelers gecombineerd met aanstormende talenten.

Bij de dames voeren de top 10 speelsters Elena Dementieva en Alicia Molik de deelnemerslijst aan. Tezamen met titelverdedigster Mary Pierce en de Russische Nadia Petrova zullen zij strijden om de titel. De talentvolle Argentijnse Gisella Dulko en onze landgenote Michaëlla Krajicek completeren de voorlopige startlijst. Bij de mannen wordt de lijst Het internationale grastennistoernooi, de Ordina Open, presenteert dit jaar een aantrekkelijk spelersveld dat bestaat uit gerenommeerde top 10 spelers gecombineerd met aanstormende talenten aangevoerd door de finalist van afgelopen jaar Giullermo Coria. De Argentijnse top 10 speler verkeert in goed gezelschap van het in topvorm verkerende talent Rafael Nadal en de talentvolle Kroaat Mario Ancic. De Duitser Tommy Haas, bezig aan een indrukwekkende comeback, zal ook van de partij zijn evenals de sympathieke Tommy Robredo. De Nederlandse inbreng komt van Ordina- ambassadeur Sjeng Schalken en Raemon Sluiter.Tijdens de komende editie zal er gespeeld worden op vier gerenoveerde grasbanen die voorzien zijn van een klei-ondergrond. Na de aanleg van een testbaan in 2004 is besloten om zowel Centre Court als baan 1 en 2 te voorzien van dezelfde ondergrond als de banen in Wimbledon waardoor de spelers zich in Rosmalen nog beter kunnen voorbereiden op de belangrijkste Grand Slam van het jaar. Op zondag 12 juni wordt naast de kwalificatiewedstrijden ook een charity-evenement georganiseerd. In een mini-toernooi vormen tennisspelers koppels met bekende Nederlanders en spelen tegen elkaar. Uiteraard zijn de Nederlandse spelers van de partij en een paar buitenlandse toppers. Na dit mini-toernooi sluiten we de middag af met een Wimbledon Revanche. Twee toppers (waarvan Richard Krajicek er één is) die ooit in een Wimbledon finale hebben gestaan ontmoeten elkaar op de grasbanen van Rosmalen om hun eer te verdedigen. De opbrengst komt ten goede van Right to Play, de organisatie opgericht door voormalig schaatskampioen Johann Olav Koss.Kaarten voor de Ordina Open zijn te verkrijgen via de verkoopkanalen van Ticketservice: grote postkantoren, GWK stationskantoren, diverse VVV kantoren, de reserveringslijn 0900 – 3001250 en via www.ordina-open.nl. Voor meer informatie kunt u contact opnemen met Toernooidirecteur Marcel Hunze via telefoonnummer 043 – 3672424.

[11 april 2005] Coria, Haas, Nadal, Schalken, Dementieva, Molik, Pierce and Krajicek come to Rosmalen. The international grass tournament, the Ordina open, presents an attractive list of players, comprising of renowned top 10 players combined with rising talents, this year.

Top 10 players Elena Dementieva and Alicia Molik head the commitment list for the women. Together with defending champion Mary Pierce and Russian Nadia Petrova, they will battle for the title. The talented Argentine Gisela Dulko and our compatriot Michaëlla Krajicek complete the current starting list.

[Now the article makes no sense, cause they mixed a few sentences, but I will type what they mean]

For the men, the list is headed by last year's finalist Guillermo Coría. The Argentine Top 10 player has good company in red-hot talent Rafael Nadal and the talented Croat Mario Ancic. German Tommy Haas, who is having an incredible comeback, will also be present as well as sympathetic Tommy Robredo []. The Dutch presence comes from Ordina-ambassador Sjeng Schalken and Raemon Sluiter. During the next edition play will be on four renovated grass courts that have a clay surface beneath. After the construction of a test court in 2004, it has been decided to give both Centre Court as well as Court 1 and 2 the exact same surface as the courts of Wimbledon, which enables the players even better to prepare themselves for the most important Grand Slam of the year.


On Sunday, June 12th, there will be a charity event, next to the qualifying matches (only ATP). In a mini tournament tennis players form couples with Dutch celebrities and will play against each other. The Dutch players will of course be present as well as a few foreign top players. After this mini tournament the afternoon will be concluded with a Wimbledon Revanche. Two top players, one of which is Richard Krajicek, who were once in a Wimbledon final, will meet each other on the grass courts of Rosmalen to defend their honour. The revenues will go to Right to Play, the organisation founded by former speed skating champion Johann Olav Koss.

Since it's during Wimbledon qualifying, players in qualies will be ranked low. My prediction is Jean-Claude might try again after his success last year. Maybe Yves Allegro again and Michael Kohlmann. And who knows, Mariusz Fyrstenberg? And Kirill Ivanov-Smolensky

Have you ever seen Rafa live before? I was lucky to see him at the Aussie Open this year. He was awesome in that match against Hewitt and he instantly became one of my favorite players.
