Who's going?



I am not sure whether I'll go. I don't like the tournament, but if there are some good players I might decide to go one day. Hopefully Marco will play.

Re: Who's going?

Well he told me that he won't play Rosmalen for sure. The rest, he really doesn't know yet. Amersfoort definitely is an option, hopefully combining that with Hilversum and Scheveningen. Hilversum is a good Challenger ($100K I think?), with poor players, so he could do well in that field

Re: Who's going?

Let's speculate on the ranking of the last direct accepted player. My guess is it will be 130-something

Amersfoort has to compete with Indianapolis (IS >$600K) and Stuttgart (ISG >€600K). That means no American players, no big clay court players.. The list will be very weak

Re: Who's going?

As long as Marco is there i will not complain

(be happy - it'll save you money, and if there aren't fave playrs you do't have to go to this bad tourney )

I just hope Montañes, Rochus brothers, Vliegen and Behrend can play again. And Thomann, but well I can hope in vain with his ranking

Re: Who's going?

Last year's direct acceptance was #132 Well if it's worse this year, Marco might even get in

The qualifiers were good though (except Michal Przysiezny, but Jiri Vanek, Alejandro Falla and Peter Luczak are all good on clay). The doubles draw a bit disappointing I guess

I still long for the days of Amsterdam

Re: Who's going?

The ony positive thing about Amersfoort is that it's a short travel for me

Nah, i have never been to the tourney when it was in A'dam so i can't give an honest answer to that.

Amsterdam had great atmosphere! I am a bit nostalgic when it comes to that, cause Amersfoort was such a huge disappointment when I went three years ago. Decided to skip it the year after cause of that experience. And last year just made things worse

How long a journey is it for you, Brenda? It's not that hard to get to (have to change trains twice and then the bus if I remember correctly). It's just a huge disappointment that you cannot watch the players practice, which is one of the things I like to do the most.

Re: Who's going?

Yeah i agree. It's boring, when there is not a good match there is nothing you can do but wait for the next match...no fun shops, no trainings, etc...and most is for the VIP's...
