Ruben Bemelmans

Hi,
yesteday I went to this 15K event in Israel to see Ruben, he was playing really well hitting a lot of winners and aces. He made his opponent run a lot with some great shots and angles.

So I wanted to know, what can you tell me about this guy? is he considered as Belgium's next tennis star or isn't he get a lot of attention in your country?

He is one of my faes now, that for sure!

Re: Ruben Bemelmans

He isn't getting a lot of attention in our country, mens tennis isn't that much in the spotlight as womens is.
I have no idea what to expect from him, he was a decent junior, I think he'll be top 100 some day. (at least I hope so)
I haven't seen him play yet, so maybe you have to tell us, waht you think? Has he top 100 potential?
Did you see Niels Desein as well?

Re: Ruben Bemelmans

Ruben was playing some amazing tennis since the start of the second set. As you know he is a lefty so his serve in the AD side was really hard with great angles sometimes (he got a lot of cheep points in there.). He got some nice strokes, I think that he should work some more on his backhand. But he is defenetly a top 100 material! I think that he can get even further in the ranking. I really liked his type of game.
I didn't see Desein play, because his match is today, but as I was recomanded to see Ruban match I was recomended to see Desein's as well (some people here told me he got lots of talent). But I think I saw Niels in Ruben's cheering group, but I am not sure about it.
From all the matches I saw yesterday, Rubin is my favourite to win the title!

Re: Ruben Bemelmans



As you can see Ruben has made some serious progress during this year.
He ended 6th in the junior world ranking previous year and IMO must be able to reach top 100. Hopefully he'll succeed.

Steve Darcis - Dick Norman - Christophe Rochus

Desein - Bemelmans - Masson - Mertens - Authom - Wauters

Nice, he's an Anderlecht fan as well!

I've made a group for him on facebook, you can join: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/gr...id=56376044464 Ruben a member as well!

And here you can find some photographs of him I took in Mons (Belgium): http://fotoplaza.tennisforum.be/?dir=Bemelmans%20Ruben

I hope he can get into the top 150 someday, maybe in 2 or 3 years?

Re: Ruben Bemelmans

Watched his match against Nadal in Bangkok. Was very impressed.

I'm soooo tempted to start a thread for him in GD... "Forget the Brandwagon, it's BEMELMANIA!" LOL.


HUEY/INGLOT FTW!
