I don't think Justine will have entered, if I remember her schedule correctly, she was planning to prepare for Wimbledon on the premises and not as usual in Holland. Could be wrong though, what's your source? (if so, I'm gonna get tickets!)

Well I also don't expect Justine there but never say never. Safin, Hrbaty, Schüettler, Verker, Sluiter and Schalken are the first names at the mens side

Roland Garros '03,'05,'06,'07
US Open '03,'07 / Australian Open '04
Olympic Gold '04 /
YEC Madrid '06,'07
41 titles

I'm sorry but why do these players play here.

Its a tier 3 and not even in the same country as a grandslam the folowing week.

Makes no sense when Eastbourne is there to be played.

GOOD LUCK IN 2016 GB TENNIS GIRLS

If those ladies do come in, it'll be good for the draw. I also hope that past Champion Kristina Brandi comes in and does well!

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Well the grass in Rosmalen is very close to the Wimbledon-grass (players said it ) and if the hosting is good why not

Some players just like to play there cuz it has a nice atmosphere.Justine and KIm have been playing there cuz it's close to their home and allot of Belgians and their family come there.As for the others,like I said it's a nice tourney plus Eastbourne is very windy and all.Justine actually said last year that it was more ideal to play in Rosmalen than Eastbourne.Eastbourne has some fine grasscourts,Rosmalens grasscourts OTOH aren't the best quality.Going from decent courts (RM) to fantastic courts (Wimby) is ideal in the eyes of Justine.BUt like I said she probably won't play it this year,but she won't play Eastbourne neither.

Allez.

I think that Kim will play here too.. and maybe Justine.. Last year she said also that she wouldn't play here but at the last moment she came to play. I really hope that Kim and Justine will play.. but it's already a very good players line-up for a Tier 3.. I still think that 's-Hertogenbosch has to become a Tier 2!
