Compatriot Westerhof opponent in Alphen

Thiemo meets compatriot Boy Westerhof in the first round of the TEAN International. The 25-year old wildcard player reached the final of a future tournament in Apeldoorn last week. The winner meets Laurent Rochette (FRA) or Evgeny Korolev (KAZ) in the next round.

This is Thiemo’s fourth appearance at the challenger event in Alphen aan de Rijn. He recorded a semifinal spot in 2009 and was eliminated in the quarterfinals in 2008 and 2007. The Dutchman probably will play on Wednesday.
