World top present in wheelchair tournament

No less than nine players from the global top 10 will make an appearance during the ABN AMRO World Wheelchair Tennis Tournament. Leader of the field Alfie Hewett will defend his 2021 title. The Dutch contribution is formed by Tom Egberink and Maikel Scheffers. The wheelchair tournament will be played simultaneously with the ATP tournament in Rotterdam Ahoy from Thursday 10 to 13 February 2022.

Tournament director Esther Vergeer: "The world’s top wheelchair tennis players like to come to Rotterdam. Our starting list shows that, which includes no fewer than eight players from the global top 10. Eye-catchers are of course Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett, who won the Grand Slam in doubles last year. With the winners of Paralympic Gold in doubles, Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer, the competition is very strong and we are in for a great tournament.”

Dutch contribution
The Dutch contribution is formed by Tom Egberink and Maikel Scheffers. Scheffers was awarded the wildcard for the tournament. It will be Scheffers’ 14th participation: since 2009 he has been continuously present at the tournament.
