The first thing we know is that, as expected, it will be played on Mallorca, the place, will be the same where Mallorca Open was held some years ago... that is, Coliseo Balear, a bullfighting ring in Mallorca where 11500 people will cheer for both teams... As the venue is in April good weather can be expected as well as some Dutch tourists in Balearic Islands.

This will encourage Rafael and Carlos to play their best games in the tie :D
Vamos España :D

Heh - I did have to laugh at the sentence that said "11500 people will cheer for both teams", but I'm sure the venue will provide both Moya and Nadal with added inspiration, as if they needed it anyway... eugh, this is going to be nasty. Schalken has beaten Moya on clay in Spain, but the small fact that that was nine years ago might prove something of a hindrance.

~EMiLiTA~
04-04-2004, 11:09 AM
as far as we know, yes...he's been nominated by the captains to play in the singles...he's been practising for over a week so he should be ok...if he can't play, they said they'll probably put Rafael in the singles, but personally I think Juanqui should be ok

Could it be Dutch Delight in Mallorca?
http://www.daviscup.com/news/newsarticle.asp?id=12833

Spain can’t fail to feel confident as their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas quarterfinal at home to the Netherlands approaches. In a match that will be played on clay in Mallorca, April 9-11, Spain boast a team filled with the reigning Roland Garros champion (Juan Carlos Ferrero, the 1998 Roland Garros winner (Carlos Moya), perhaps the most exciting prospect in the game and the last person to defeat Roger Federer (Rafael Nadal), and a solid, talented performer in Tommy Robredo.

Yet despite the formidable reputations and records of their opponents, the Netherlands, and Raemon Sluiter in particular, still have reason to feel confident.

The last time the two nations met, in Eindhoven in 2001, the Netherlands were triumphant, and Sluiter, on his debut, defeated Ferrero in the opening rubber.

It seemed as though Sluiter had been born to play on the Davis Cup stage.

“On my debut against Spain I played a great match,” he remembers. “The nice thing was that I also won that match against Ferrero, but even if I had lost, it was still a good match and I was able to play my best tennis. I think that is what it’s all about. The pressure is big, and different in Davis Cup, but somehow I liked that pressure. It brought out my best tennis.”

His team-mate Sjeng Schalken began describing Sluiter as a ‘Davis Cup specialist’ after his countryman’s 67(5) 76(7) 36 76(3) 64 victory over Ferrero.

Bizarrely, it was also a Davis Cup match between the Netherlands and Spain, the previous one that the two nations had played, that caused Sluiter to fall in love with the competition.

“It’s quite a coincidence with the meeting coming up that the first thing I remember of the Davis Cup was when we beat Spain away in 1993,” he says.

“(Paul) Haarhuis won two singles rubbers, and with the score at 2-rubbers-all, [Mark] Koevermans came back to beat [Sergi] Bruguera from two sets to love down. That was the first time that I thought: ‘this is what it is all about, this is undoubtedly the most beautiful thing in tennis.’ From that moment on I really started looking differently at the Davis Cup.”

When he eventually forced his way into the Davis Cup team himself in 2001, he still stood behind players like Haarhuis, and 1996 Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek, so opportunities appeared to be limited.

However, when he joined up with the team in Eindhoven for the tie against Spain, his big chance suddenly came out of the blue.

“The whole week I was practicing and hitting the ball really well,” remembers Sluiter. “Richard Krajicek was injured and if he had been fit I would have only been there as a fifth guy. I still wasn’t counting on playing, not at all, because we had a lot of good players and I think Jan Siemerink was ranked a little bit higher than me at the time, but in practice I think he got a little bit injured.

"The coach got the team together and told us that I was going to play. It was a big surprise, but adrenaline ran through my body and although it was quite nerve-wracking, it was a different pressure, and somehow I quite liked it.”

So much so that he saw off Ferrero in that thrilling encounter in front of an ecstatic home crowd.

For Sluiter - as patriotic a man as you could ever find - there could be no bigger achievement. Born in Rotterdam and a resident there ever since, Sluiter says he never wants to live anywhere else. He loves to see the Netherlands fans in their orange outfits supporting their national teams, and he is the same as them in regard to other sports - mentally kicking every ball with the national football team, for instance.

Sluiter also loves snooker, and is a decent player himself. His favourite player is the exciting ‘Rocket’ Ronnie O’Sullivan, and the need to entertain the crowd is something Sluiter takes seriously. He likes to occasionally play an audacious drop-shot or two himself, and regardless of whether the Netherlands beat Spain in April, he wants the crowd to go home happy.

“Even though it’s an away match against Spain, I still think there will be a lot of people from the Netherlands there, wearing the orange," he says. “Of course they want us to win, but they are also there to just have a couple of great days. First of all we are tennis players, but we are also entertainers, so it is good to see them having a good time.”

And if history is anything to go by, they might come away celebrating a victory as well.

moya must begin to play against Verkerk.
This is very good view from the netherlands trainer: first match: moya - verkerk. Verkerk has beaten moya at rol garros, so he hopes it will happen again and spain will loose the first match. So that is what the netherlands hopes!!! They haven't put Schalken in the team, because they want Verkerk for number one player of the dutch team and play the opening match!!!
Well it will not work!!!! CARLOS BEAT VERKERK TAKE REVENGE AND A GOOD ONE

TBE, I am very aware of what they have been up to at RG for years. They did it to stop Sergi Bruguera and Thomas Muster from winning more there.

Moya will eat Verkerk in this match I think.

George i know u have, others might not know :)

this match was the VITAL one for the dutch
they left out Sjeng so Verkerk played Moya on day 1

otherwise it would have been
Moya vs Schalken
Ferrero vs Verkerk

got GBR vs Lux on TV here
Muller just levelled match 46 75

and later on USA vs SWE

I don't have any DC action this weekend, I am not disappointed by that actually. The best thing is that Roddicks won't see anything of their hero get smashed on the clay because of the insular ESPN.

Feds leads 4-2 against Escude I am in both threads at the moment.

The Dutch guys were toyed around with as expected. JC looked awesome out there! Well done Carlos and JC, you guys deserve a 5-0 win this tie!

Oh and the fact that they left Sjeng out today was not just cuz of the whole Verkerk wanting to play Moya thing, but also cuz Sluiter was really good during the training and Schalken talked to the team captain himself. Sjeng told how he was totally out of shape and didn't wanna ruin the first match for Holland.

And Holland is probably not gonna win the doubles either, since they have the totally inexperienced team of Verkerk/Van Lottum or maybe Schalken/Van Lottum. Against two in-form awesome players like Nadal and Robredo.. hmzz.. fat chance my countrymen are gonna get any further than taking 1 set.

It's sad really. I am a Dutchman and I am not even supporting my country in 3 out of 5 matches. I only want(ed) Sluiter to win two matches, but that isn't even happening ;) Now, just clinch it Tommy! I feel unfortunate to have to work today, when today is the only day that Tommy will either play or, if it is indeed 3-0 he could play on Sunday (though I expect Moyá and Nadal to), will be broadcast.

No further play today...

Score Remains 2-0 in Spain as Rain Halts Play
The score in Mallorca is still 2-0 in Spain's favour after rain forced the suspension of the doubles until Sunday. Rafael Nadal and Tommy Robredo were leading by two sets to one against John Van Lottum and Martin Verkerk when the heavens opened.

Play will resume at 10:30 am local time on Sunday and, while the Spaniards had won the first two sets, they were on the receiving end of a fightback when the weather changed, the score standing at 63 62 36 susp. after the visitors took the third set.

The dutchies didn't gave a very good explenation for that. The team Sluiter-Verkerk just doens't fit anymore. Some probs between them i think... their game together seems to be awefull these days...
Indeed, Van Lottum was awefull in the first two sets, but in the third set he made some good points.

If the Dutch win the doubles does Verkerk have to play singles straight away?

A little unfair

bovenbuuf
04-11-2004, 10:41 AM
yeah I wonder, maybe Moya v. Sluiter will be first..guess the Dutch players wait, if Verkerk will be ok for playing single, they also have Schalken..

04-11-2004, 10:43 AM

ferrero was pressured on his 1st service game of 2nd set but survived...1-1

04-11-2004, 12:48 PM
i feel its gonna be tougher than the RG final between the both of them....verkerk seems to be revitalised after the doubles rubber win.

Tommy! :( That really sucked.. he hit three unforced errors in that last game..

But now, all of a sudden, I am supporting The Netherlands (unless Tommy has to play the fifth match, lol). Great ambience there and a great match, though I dislike Martin's game. It's really exciting and the Dutch are as loud as ever ;)
