Richel lost in the semi final against Alicia Molik 3-6 0-6
But a great trip to Australia for her
She came to Australia with a WTA-ranking of 538 (50 ranking points) and when the points of Bendigo have been added she will have a ranking around 370 (99 ranking points). She alsmost doubled her ranking points in these 3 tournaments! Not bad for someone who started in June on the seniors tour and has just played 9 tournaments And I think she will be the nr 3 Dutchie on the rankings too.
She qualified all 3 times for the MD, reaching a 2nd round, quarter final and semi final in 25k. Her best result yet. And she defeated the nr 146 in the world, Olivia Rogowska. That is the highest ranked player she has beaten so far.
Interesting what her schedule for next year will be and what she can do
Is there in the Netherlands something like National Masters?
Yes, the Tennis Masters 2009 will be held in Rotterdam next week.
I have opened a thread for this, also in the Dutch players forum. I have added the entry lists in that thread. But unfortuately the entry list for the women isn't that great But Richel will be there
