Nicolette beat Shlomo (ranked 394) 36 61 61 and now faces the no. 1 seed in the quarters, Sarah Gronert (WTA 267). Nicolette and Sarah played each other once before; last September on clay in Almere. Gronert won that match 6-3 4-6 7-5, so let's hope Nicolette can put up another good fight!
Nicolette won the first qualifying match at Wrexham and now is up against one of the Ren sisters.
As starter of this thread I just took a look at Nicolette's points-to-defend for the start of this year.
She has 2x 1 point to defend in February, after that only two points in May. So I guess the only way is up for the first half of 2010 for Nicolette!
ARG...sorry, but do you have to ask that in all of the Dutch players threads? There is a "where are the Dutchies" thread already. Maybe it's just me, but it's annoying to open up like 3 threads in a row to see it's just you asking the same question about a different player. I would like to assume that if anyone had any news other than from the ITF site or whatever then they would post it here already anyway. (Hope that didn't sound mean, I'm just frustrated).
