I thought so too, but I don't think he'll play Rotterdam. Would be very stupid to play that without any lead-up events in any case.

Sluiter had already said that he considering playing Rotterdam as he isn't going to be ready to play such a high level event so soon after coming out of retirement. And from what I understand Krajicek wasn't too upset that Sluiter wasn't coming after organizing a farewell for Sluiter last year only to have him say he's coming back a couple of months later.

Too bad that Robin isn't fit in time for the tournament. It was great to see him play last year!

I can't wait till the time is finally there... a whole week of tennis in front of us! Rafa for title!!

And if not Rafa, then Lopez or Andreev ;).... (you never know if wishful thinking might work one day...;) )

Is Davydenko a certainty for this tournament?

Before he said he would comeback here.

You might be right about this one. I was reading an article yesterday, and it said that DAvydenko has made a reservation for a hotel room, so good chance he's back in business here in Rotterdam. :cool:

OMFG Dimitrov?

Ridiculous choice. In Rosmalen, the guy was clearly not ready. And then to expect him to perform at a much bigger event is crazy. No one in the crowd will know him either :shrug: Would have been better to give it to Koning or Middelkoop. They may be no-hopers, but at least they are Dutch. I mean, good luck to Dimitrov but really, what a choice.

Thiemo is a logical choice.

Ahem CooCoo, I am afraid they are pushing him too early into the big tournaments. He's 17, too young.. he needs at least one CALM year playing futures and challengers and developing nicely his game as his father was doing in the past. Indeed, this WC can hurt him more than do him good, while some Dutch player can benefit greatly from it. The Spaniards are a little obsessed with early bloomers I believe.
