Well, Swiss NOC is more trusted site. They update their website with selection news every week.   http://www.swissolympicteam.ch/olympische-spiele/sommerspiele/rio-2016/news/Sechs-Schweizer-

From Spain, the plan por mixed doubles are Nadal-Muguruza and Navarro-Ferrer.

No points for atp/wta ranking,so I expect a least 5 more solid players at least.

 

Most likely.

I think for many players the Olympics is a good chance to take a rest, just like in golf..

 

Definitely. Though, there is one ATP tournament during the Olympic tournament, I guess it will have decent draw :d

Robin Haase should go to that ATP tournament, hoping that most top players are either at the Olympics or taking a rest :d

Don't be harsh on him. The guy does his best :p You should be more pissed of on De Bakker - he was such a promising youngster -.-

Now you should have your eye on Tim van Rijthoven...

Van Rijthoven is sort of our last hope for now, the rest is so incredibly mentally weak. Haase is one of the most annoying players to watch...if he misses one point, he starts complaining to the umpire and doing all kind of weird stuff. I remember him at Rosmalen (I believe) a few years ago, someone was playing some music outside of the stadium and he didn't like it, so all of a sudden, he shouted: "AAAH TURN OFF THAT MUSIC!!!!!" :lol:

 

This has become a famous meme on a Dutch forum ever since. Especially given that someone in the audience reacted with "Come on, start playing tennis." :d

:roflmao: Epic gifs... If it is any consolation for you, he is not the only one to be mentally week...

 

I watched Rijthoven's matches in Drummondville (I think it was Drummondville) and I liked what I'd seen.

"Thank you!!" (Unfortunately I can't find the video, which is of course in English. Anyway he was discussing with the umpire as always, finished with "Thank you", wanted to turn around and when the umpire said one more word, he screamed "THANK YOU!!!" again :d )
