I have been to the Rosmalen tournament too. It's one of the best places to go if you wanna see the players practicing and stuff. And I like that it is a smaller tournament with a good atmosphere and they still have some pretty big names in the main draw every year
Anybody has any idea if Fred (back on topic ) is playing this week? Or is he preparing for Oz Open qualies?

I think that Fred will play the qualies for the Aussie Open. At least, I hope so... Who knows, he might be able to qualify! There isn't much else he can do if he wants to play matches, since there aren't any challengers the next two weeks according to the official ATP site.

Wow! Did you all see it? Hemmes beat Soderling in the first round. Tomorrow he has to play Vince Spadea. I'm very curious how that will end! Don't you think he's doing himself a huge favour by doing so well at the start of the year, with the rankings starting from zero?

Hope he wins another match, a quarterfinal in an ATP event is a good way to start the year and build up your confidence.

Go fred!

Re: The Fred Hemmes Jr Cheering Thread

Wow Fred is doing really well. Even though I don't really like him (I saw him against Siemerink in Scheveningen a few years ago. Siemerink was about to retire, but Fred played horribly!), he is still improving and that is a good thing. Great job on beating both Pavel and Söderling! Tom Nijssen, his coach, said that it was his best match ever against Söderling!

BTW I agree Snoopy, Rosmalen is a great tournament to see some practising. This possibility is way too limited in Rotterdam and Amersfoort.

Re: The Fred Hemmes Jr Cheering Thread

By the way.. The qualifying draw for the Australian Open is out! I think Fred has got a good shot at qualifying. First round against Juan Pablo Guzman (Argentina), then Robert Smeets (Oz) or 22nd seed Daniel Elsner from Germany. That seems easy, I'd say. Giovanni Lapentti will be his biggest threat! What do you think?

I guess Freds second round match was not his best ever, hehe, losing 6-2 6-1 to Spadea... that probably wasn't a pretty (hehe) match by Fred. But it has a good side too, like CooCooCachoo said, Fred is now able to play the Aussie Open qualies, and has a good chance to beat some people there. That is of course, if yesterdays match isn't in his head anymore and Giovanni Lapentti is not on the roll yet.

I wish him good luck anyway. Who knows: 2004 might be Fred's year!

Re: The Fred Hemmes Jr Cheering Thread

Well.. if this isn't his year, it is going to be harder and harder to break through. So I hope he'll do well, as well

He beat Guzman in the first round of the qualies... 8-6 in the third, so a tough one...
Next up is Elsner, the German number 22 seed. Fortunately, Lapentti is out already.. pfew!
And I agree with you CooCooCachoo, it's gonna get harder and harder for him to reach his top ranking!
I wish him good luck anyway! Go Fred!
