Eastbourne or Rosmalen?

One of the cases for Eastbourne is that her fans would want to see her play there, but seeing a few posts I wonder would her fans prefer her to play in Rosmalen for the points and miss out on seeing her play?

Re: Eastbourne or Rosmalen?

If I was here, I would play Rosmalen. Yes she could play at home but chances are she will get a brutal draw. Anne is the first to admit grass isnt her surface, so she should go to Holland and try and get a win, to get some more points in the bag. But I think she will play Eastbourne

Re: Eastbourne or Rosmalen?

Good Question
Well Eastbourne is obvious because of the home crowd and one week before Wimbledon, but she has a much better chance of getting a decent draw at Rosmalen.
Im pretty sure she would play Eastbourne but I can see her doing better in Holland

No way, except the $$$ WCs, Rosmalen Qualies have players, and the Main Draw aswell!

Eastbourne by far.

Because it's a hard decision.

I've gone with the selfish point of view of wanting to watch her play.

Re: Eastbourne or Rosmalen?

I'd say Rosmalen. Deffo. I do think she struggles with the pressure of playing in england a bit.

Re: Eastbourne or Rosmalen?

Saying that , I think with all the media attention Anne has been getting for the Wimbledon DA, she will be pressurised into playing Eastbourne in front of fans

Patch is right but I think it's only 50k+ that you get feed ups into main draws.

Re: Eastbourne or Rosmalen?

I think Anne should go to Rosmalen. It will give her the chance to play away from the UK on grass without having all the pressure. Plus I doubt that Rosmalen is as windy as Eastbourne and even though there are more ranking points and prize money on offer in Eastbourne, she is more likely to get a win in Rosmalen and then it will also free up another wildcard for Eastbourne
