Who is going, when and with whom?

Just a simple question! :)

Out of you guys, who is going to Rotterdam this year and when?

I'll be at Ahoy on Saturday and Sunday of the qualification tournament (hopefully at the centre court most of the times) and on Tuesday. Depending on time, money and schedule of play, I could go on Monday as well!

I don't know yet with whom I'll be going! :( On Tuesday, I'll probably go with a classmate, but the other days.. Any volunteers, lol!

I still don't know on what day I'll go, but I'll let you know by then :)

Yep, you told me that already hehe :) Go on the Sunday of the qualification tournament, if you are smart :) Good chance to see Marat practise too.. Saw him last year.. Man he practises for a very very long time!

He's not coming this year :sad:

He is not? Really? I didn't really examine the names, but I really expected Marat to be on the list! This is very, very odd, since Marat actually plays the Rotterdam tournament every year. Have you got an idea why he isn't coming?

maratski

Probably because of his ranking :sad:

CooCooCachoo

Didn't he get like a protective ranking or something? He was injured, right?! Well there is still hope, since I think Rusedski will pull out.. Perhaps he'll be granted a wild card as well.

He doesn't have a protected ranking and hasn't released his 2004 schedule yet so I hope he asks for a WC

Did you check the post for the Open 13 Marseilles commitments? He is going to play there, so that would make it likely for him to go Rotterdam as well..

But Richard Krajicek promised to give Marat a wildcard if he made it to the semies at the AO... That chance is getting bigger by the minute.. Anyone here knows how we can contact the organistion of the WTT or Richard himself for all I care?
Normally Marat always plays Rotterdam, he even told the media once that it was his fave tournament in Europe (apart from the ones in Russia)... So I think that if his body (and Richard) allow him to come, he will be there! *hopes hopes hopes*

Anyway I'm gonna go on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.. and I might go back at the day of the semies. :wavey:

Hehe you are going four days as well, Snoopy!

A great win for Marat over Andy! I totally hadn't expected this, but I am sure the tournament directors and Richard will give him a wildcard!

hey again illhame ;) just a question:D
anyone going to this tournament? quarter finals day has two sessions, 11 and 19.30 so if i paid for both sessions i would get the 4 matches? i cant find anywhere if its just one indoor court.
thanks

Hey joeb.

Quarter finals will be played on Friday, all four matches. I take it two will be for the morning session and two for the evening session, so you get to see all four matches if you buy two tickets. There are two courts (this can actually be found on the plan on the official website): a centre court and Court 1, which is mainly used for first round matches and doubles matches.

Have fun and welcome to MTF!

Pink Panther

Well according to the official website, the draw will be made this Sunday at 2pm.

...which will then be followed by a kick-off floating match on R.Maas...wow what a sight that would be...

CooCooCachoo
02-13-2004, 05:11 AM
Yes that will be Sunday afternoon and I can watch the ceremony ;)

About four players will play on a boat on the Maas, which is a bit similar to last year's event, when four players played on the Erasmusbrug.

@ CooCooCachoo. Ja er zit een barst in, maar dat maakt geen zak uit. Het is een prachtig souvenir!

02-19-2004, 06:08 PM
Haha ja dat geloof ik graag ;) Heb wel een handdoek van Corretja en Ancic van eerdere toernooien.. Heb je ook handtekeningen verzameld?

-wokkel-
02-19-2004, 11:08 PM
Ja, ik heb de handtekening van John op mijn telefoon en heb bij de training een tennisbal gejat en daarop staan de handtekeningen van Sjeng, Hewitt, Federer, Ferrero, Schuttler, Ivanicevic en Max Mirnyi. Ik overigens bijna alle spelers gezien die op de hoofdtabel staan, behalve Rochus en Koubek. Ben trouwens net terug van de match Ferrero tegen John.. Ben nog steeds een beetje aan het shaken! Wat een leuke, spannende wedstrijd!

Ah, leuk :) Ga je nog meer dagen??
Ik ben zaterdag & zondag van de kwali's dus geweest, en dan dinsdag overdag en woensdag overdag en 's avonds. Ik heb wel alle spelers gezien (kwalificaties, dubbel- en enkelspel), maar ik heb nagenoeg alle handtekeningen al. Heb 270+ verschillende, en de enige die ik uit het hoofdtoernooi mis, is Tomas Cakl en daar heb ik genoeg kansen voor gehad, alleen geen behoefte gehad om hem te vragen ;) Wel nieuw dit jaar zijn Schüttler, Nieminen, Bhupathi, Sargsian, Ascione en Stepanek.
