Yeah, very much true. But if she ends up like some of the winners on that list, it might not be as good :) Let's hope these girls (yes, even Micha I guess) bring Holland back into the Fed Cup main group ;)

The Dutch should be lucky if those young girls reach the level of Oremans and Boogert.
By the way I was a huge fan of Myriam's.. you know, she was damn cute!

Boogert might still come back * Fingers crossed *

Well. It can't get much worse than what we have now. No disrespect for Tamaela and the rest. But I guess we can't be really proud of them... :shrug:

Michaëlla is probably really good and of course, she's still young,
but she doesn't really have the physique does she (I mean strong, tall, athletic,...) does she have enough other qualities to make up for it? Top 30, I would say, but not top 10, she might prove me wrong, it would be good for Dutch women's tennis :)

You might have a point there. Her physique certainly isn't her best feature. I also hear a LOT that she should really improve the way she's moving...

In the past we (the Netherlands) had a lot of talented and potential topplayers. I remember players as: Simone Schilder, Digna Ketelaar, Lara Bitter, Chantal Reuter, Linda Niemantsverdriet, Kim de Weille, Petra Kamstra, Stephanie Rottier, Yvette Basting, Silvana Bauer and Michelle Gerards. Okay, Kamstra, Rottier and Basting were injured all the time, but the other players would be top 50 players. Had a lot of good results in juniors, some of them won grand slams in juniors.....so lets be realistic and just wait and see what is going to happen. For now we have no top 100 player and it will take a couple of years to do so.

I think awhile back Amanda Hopmans and Seda Noorlander were playing well in in challengers.
Strange how Amanda has disappeared and Seda was really kind of too old. But I think Michaella does have something to prove for the Netherland as it seems that she is already getting some attention, both as Richard's sisters and her great junior results last year reminiscent of Maria Sharapova's rocket ride up the ranking in 2002, and an hair away from being World Champion. I do think it's kind of over the top for her to play her first match in senior circuit in a maindraw that has #1 players in it. But anyways, I still she can do well, as she seems to hit hard, that's the current trend isnt it?:).
