Marrit Boonstra come back?
 
Hi all, on the itf entrylist of Tempa Bay I found the name of Marrit Boonstra. You think she's making a "comeback"?

That is quite surprising!! Good find, Brenda_fan.
I have no idea what she's up to. She might play some tournies now her term ended. If she is still going to college that is.

Well... after all Renee anounced her retirement earlier this year, but she came back? Maybe Marrit didn't like her studies? :)
Just read that Elise will give up prof tennis, so Marrit coming back would be nice?

*correction* Renee never announced her retirement - the mags said she was retiring, but she never said she was...apparantly. :p

Well... at least she was close to retirement. On monday de Volkskrant had a small interview with Renee, after she had beaten Misha in the finals of the masters in Rotterdam. She explained how her parents got divorced when she was 15 and she got caught in between; how everybody talked about her future of being a professional tennis player, while she herself wasn't thinking about that at all.
And about not getting the right feeling in being part of Jong Oranje, not feeling at home in Almere. She's now being coached by Fred Hemmes senior, Dennis van Schepingen and Raymond Knap, and plays every day with Popeye Gold Star...
She says how she'll start in 2008 by playing a few 10k's and hopes to progress to the 25K's quickly. She turns 18 in march and then wants to play fulltime... But, as she states herself, the most important is that she left the past behind her....
So I guess stopping was on her mind for a while... and you're up to date now:lol:

Voor de goede orde even in onze eigen taal; Marrit heeft nooit afscheid van het tennis genomen. Prive problemen thuis ( een epidemie onder onze jonge talenten; zie o.a. Reinhard en Ewijk, evenals trouwens blessures: zie ongeveer alle onze jeugdige talenten ) en het niet bestand zijn tegen de druk deeluitmakende van jong oranje hebben Marrit naar Amerika doen verhuizen. Zowel de zgn. comeback van Marrit als het optreden van Herz biedt geen enkel perspectief voor de toekomst van ons Nederlandse damestennis. De hoop is gevestigd op Misa die een ongelooflijk domme zet heeft gemaakt door de voor haar onbeduidende Masters te spelen en daardoor de eerste maanden van dit jaar in groot gevaar brengt en denk ik vele plaatsen zal verliezen op de ranking die ik haar in 2008 niet meer goed zie maken en op Rus die vrees ik, zoals zovele Nederlandse talenten in het verleden eerst haar school zal afmaken en tot het laatst toe voor de juniorranking blijft spelen ipv een behoorlijke WTA ranking optebouwen. Kortom we hebben in Nederland weinig of niets geleerd van het verleden en zullen het nog jaren lang moeten hebben van hoop ipv resultaten.

Misschien over 5 of 6 jaar nieuw talent? De potentie is er.

hollander Jan 15th, 2008 01:09 PM

Re: Marrit Boonstra come back?
 
De potentie is er altijd al geweest. Bauer, Gerards, Balk, Schoofs, Boonstra, Reinhard, Herz enz.,enz. Maar steeds worden de verkeerde keuzes gemaakt en/of schort het aan de mentaliteit van de meiden. School eerst afmaken, te weinig of zelfs geen conditie- en krachttraining met als gevolg een rits van blessures. Ik heb de wijsheid niet in pacht maar lees en luister wat Brenda Schultz hierover al jaren zegt en schrijft. De betere buitenlandse meiden maken hun school echt niet af; laten het juniorencircuit met 15 jaar voor wat het is of doen het er sporadisch bij; zetten ALLES opzij voor het tennis. Reinhard had echt mogelijkheden, maar mist de mentaliteit, Rus heeft mogelijkheden maar zal het anders moeten doen dan haar voorgangsters. Bij de nog jongere meiden zit weer een hoop talent, maar tot de leeftijd van een jaar of 15 doen de Nederlandse meiden het al jaren goed. De kunst is de voortzetting daarna.
