Re: Robert Smeets

What about AUS OPEN qualifiying he should get a wildcard into that his the 5th or 6th aussie out of the list.
I was hoping he would play in Brisbane because he would of got straight into the qualies when that draw came out i was shocked that no good players had come to play there in the qualifiying he is very similar to Carsten Ball and Chris Guccione because his got some height on him plus his great serve.

Re: Robert Smeets

Yeah the youth policy will most likely rule him out even though he has put in some good performances at the Aus Open before.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: Robert Smeets

What the fuck is going on with TA first they give Kubler a wildcard into the Main Draw, 2 They give Matosevic a wildcard in the Main Draw, 3 They give people like Berman, Sirianni and Dayne Kelly wildcards over Robert Smeets his never going to get back up near the top 100 if he dosent have any luck with wildcards or anything i just think its bullshit his only 23 and he should of been given one he might knock off a seed or two in the qualifying. Hope he plays Burnie and Melbourne then.

I agree. He seems to have been dumped by TA. It is a joke. They are pathetic.

Re: Robert Smeets

Has anyone heard where he will start the year on the pro tour. He has played one lower tour tournament, also will play another in about a weeks time, also i take back what i said about him not getting a wildcard over Kelly, Sirianni and Berman. They have all played pretty well this year espically Sirianni he did well making the final round of qualies at Australian Open, also a Semi Final at Burnie and a second round in Japanese challenger, he also has gained around 80 spots in the rankings this year well done.

I have just looked at Dayne Kelly's profile and he is 19, shocked i thought he was about 22 or 23. So thats good then. Kelly has made a Quarter Fianl in Burnie also in two US Futures, so not that bad.

Berman did great in the junior Australian Open making the final.

So now back to Smeets, hopefully he can play 1 or two grand slam qualies this year and get a ranking of 300 or lower at any stage of the year. I would be very surprised if he was to ever make the top 200 again. What do people think. Also everyone go to ATP World Tour website and sign up for the Draw Challenge, and join the Aussie group, good luck to Smeets this year.

Smeets' career is pretty much over. His ranking is not going to get him anywhere fast and he hasn't even been playing. Unless he plays (if he plays) well in the Australian futures this year then I think he will retire. He is isn't exactly young anymore, His career has been pretty average but TA made him look a lot better than he was.

Re: Robert Smeets

Ohh yes just had a look and i thought it said 2010, but it was 2009 when he played a couple of QLD AMT, sorry for that. But he is about to play in Griffith. Well i hope he could make a radical come back but yes i think his career is pretty much over too. Anyway hope he does play atleast a couple more futures this year to see how is comparing this year. Also does anyone know why he didn't enter the Wildcard Play Off, was he injured, because he should have been given direct acceptance by ranking, well anyway good luck to him what ever happends in the end.

Re: Robert Smeets

Robert is playing a small tournament in Griffith, he is through to the fourth round. He won his first match with a bye, then won two fairly easy straight sets matches. He is the top seed, pretty much there is only one player that has a chance in beating him that player is Matheson Klein. Hopefully Smeets can win that then play some futures and win them, good luck to him. Also everyone has given up on him everyone who reads this write something please.
