Dutch tennis was down for a while, Zero players in the Australian Open main draw but now 3 players in the main draw of Miami the Fifth Grand Slam

Martin Verkerk Priority Ranking
Raemon Sluiter Qualies d. Economidis and Korolev
Robin Haase Qualies d. Sanguinetti and Sela

Hopefully the start of some good years with Haase and de Bakker and oldies Verkerk and Sluiter

guess verkerk can't win against sebastien, but depends on the draw if sluiti and haase win, but they both played strong in qualies

Some of them gets Henman in round 1, and there you go ;)

Yeah... I don't see Martin managing, but indeed - Robin is an upcoming guy and is playing well lately, and Raemon might feel the drive that he wants to get something done again. Let's just keep our fingers crossed!
(BTW, I'm not patriotic at all, but if finally some Dutch players come through, we'll be able to watch tennis on the telly again over here! :yeah:)

PS also read in the paper today that Sjeng is now indeed thinking of retiring... :sad:

It is the irony, Sjeng always was healthy and suddenly a one injury and end of career in the consequence :sad:

Amazing.

Champion number 1

Same can be said with Italian. We have 5 in the main draw... 2 qualifiers (Seppi and Bolelli) while Volandri, Starace and Bracciali are in Miami due to their ranking.

yeah but italy is a good tennis country now so not really a surprise, the netherlands are in a dark period so 3 in Miami is very nice,


Haase vs. Monaco
Sluiter vs. Guga

They can win those matches

What happened to martin Verkerk?

A long sad story of injuries and operations, illness, and as is rumoured, he eventually became completely demoralized and even tipped the bottle a little too often...

He's been working hard at his come-back lately though. I hope he'll manage - but he's not the youngest anymore, so we'll have to wait and see.

Hope they can win a few!

I read about Sjeng too :sad: He's has been trying to get it together for such a long time now, it's so sad he didn't manege.
We see him at all the dutch tourny's advertising his own brand of sportswear, and god he has ugly products :o
