Anjema commits to Dutch Open
ace Laurens Jan Anjema has announced that he will
participate in next month’s Dutch Open Squash 2010,
which will take place from 16-21 November 2010 at the
renowned squash club Victoria Squash in Rotterdam.
The 27-year old from The Hague is experiencing a successful
year and is closing in on becoming the first ever Dutch
player to reach the world’s top ten. Anjema already won two
PSA Tour titles in the beginning of this year in Canada and
reached the final of the US Open only ten days ago,
in which he went down fighting to Wael el Hindi.
A good result during the PSA 3 Star championship in
Rotterdam might mean that the left handed Dutchmen,
currently ranked 11th in the world, will break into the top
ten, which adds an extra dimension to the high profile
tournament on Dutch soil.
Tournament director Tommy Berden also confirmed that
Dylan Bennett was granted the wildcard for the main
draw of this year’s Dutch Open, providing the 26-year old
from Eindhoven, who proved victorious during two PSA
tournaments this year, with a chance to boost his current
world ranking of 70.
The third biggest squash tournament in Europe in 2010, the
Dutch Open will feature a PSA 3 Star event and a WISPA
Silver 20 competition, which will attract some of the
world’s best male and female players to Rotterdam, also
known as the ‘City of Sports’ in Holland.
The Dutch Open Squash 2010 offers a total prize fund of
US$55,000 as well as valuable world ranking points for
competitors from all over the world.
