3 Dutch guys in the Main Draw of Miami

Dutch tennis was down for a while, Zero players in the Australian Open main draw but now 3 players in the main draw of Miami the Fifth Grand Slam

Martin Verkerk Priority Ranking
Raemon Sluiter Qualies d. Economidis and Korolev
Robin Haase Qualies d. Sanguinetti and Sela

Hopefully the start of some good years with Haase and de Bakker and oldies Verkerk and Sluiter

Nalbandian

Escude-Kuerten
Dutch players

Gasquet-Ferrero-Lopez-Mathieu

Nadal-Acasuso-Haas-Youzhny-Berdych-Gonzalez-Tursunov

Söderling-Del Potro-Bellucci-Lapentti-Roddick-Verdasco

I hope one of them will make the second round!

Yeah... I don't see Martin managing, but indeed - Robin is an upcoming guy and is playing well lately, and Raemon might feel the drive that he wants to get something done again. Let's just keep our fingers crossed!
(BTW, I'm not patriotic at all, but if finally some Dutch players come through, we'll be able to watch tennis on the telly again over here! )

PS also read in the paper today that Sjeng is now indeed thinking of retiring...

It is the irony, Sjeng always was healthy and suddenly a one injury and end of career in the consequence

Well done, especially Sluiter defeating an in-form RMK.
