Re: Nicole Thijssen

okay... disastrous first round in Hvar last week and now a late withdrawal in the qualifying tournament of Bol. What's going on with Nicole? Not another injury I hope?

Re: Nicole Thijssen

Tennisactueel.nl reports that Nicole quits playing international tennis immediately. Article below. In short: results weren't good lately and she can't bring herself to train every day if all the effort does not lead to better results.
Highest ranking ever was 219 and Nicole won two 25k's in her career.

Nicole Thyssen is per direct gestopt met het spelen van internationale toernooien. Hiermee schuift ze haar top-100 ambities definitief van de baan.

De resultaten van de 21-jarige Naaldwijkse vielen de afgelopen periode tegen. Ook het aantal blessures waar ze mee te kampen heeft gehad werkt niet mee aan een succesvolle weg naar de top. ‘’Ik kan het helaas niet meer opbrengen om dag in dag uit te trainen en vervolgens constateren dat er geen stijgende lijn meer in zit’’.
De dubbelhandige speelster blijft nog wel in het nationale tennis actief. Ze speelt dit jaar competie (Eredivisie) bij HTC Den Helder en is ook actief op een aantal A toernooien. Thyssen traint o.a. 2 á 3 keer per week met de 18-jarige Kiki Bertens.

Thyssen schreef in haar korte carrière twee $25.000 ITF toernooien op haar naam (Fuerteventura (Spa) – 2007 en Coimbra (Por) - 2008). In 2008 bereikte ze haar hoogste notering op de wereldranglijst, de 219e positie.

Re: Nicole Thijssen

Oh I saw something about that on facebook a couple of days ago and forgot to post it in here. Pity, but not a huge surprise I guess - she was always injured and the results really weren't coming.

Re: Nicole Thijssen

Expected.
Quite a shame.
But i can understand that you lose motivation when you're injured so much.

She had quite some potential.
Nic Have a great life without tennis!
