Dutch tennis is a joke, this entire generation is a bunch of pushers with no incentive to become better players (with the exception of Haase, who is a pusher, but at least has the drive).
I miss Verkerk
EDIT: and just as I finished this rant, the idiotic commentator was ecstatic about the Bakker playing ONE good point and says "here you see why he is potentially a top-20 player"
Nice! Hope you get a chance to make it to some of the matches this weekend.
Too bad Sijsling wasn't feeling well. He's played well at times and likes to volley.
