I think Oremans but Bollegraf is very good in doubles. I think...
I never really followed their carreers, so I can't really tell...

Similar standard in terms of ability but Bollegraf probably edges it.

Manon won one singles title and 26 doubles titles, while Miriam won no singles titles and 3 doubles titles. Manon's highest rankings were #29 for singles and #4 for doubles, while Miriam made #25 in singles and #19 in doubles. Manon was the only one of them to make a slam singles quarter final when she reached that stage in the French Open many years ago.

Though without quite the same singles results, I prefer Miriam's doubles partner, Kristie BOOGERT, more than any of the Dutch gals. Kristie was very aggressive, would get to net, and when on had a serious serve. At 5'11" she was like a greyhound without being too big like Brenda. Boogie all the way! Very refined, a credit to the game. So different than the cookie-cutter baseline robazoids we see now! Boogert and Oremans won the silver in Sydney.
