Both Erik Meijs and Nick Fransman go into this edition of their home event as a pair with an outside chance of victory. Meijs is seeded six while Fransman is the third seed for the tournament. Fransman finds himself in the same half of the draw as top seed Indra Bagus Ade Chandra who, based on sheer talent, is the class of the field.
Meijs will come through the bottom half of the field and waiting for him will be second seed Kalle Koljonen who showed good form on home courts in Finland just two weeks ago. The most interesting match in round one is the match up of last week's men's singles winner in Croatia, Kasper Lehikoinen of Finland, and one of the big finds of this seasons Victor Svendsen of Denmark.
The Netherlands will also look to European junior men’s singles bronze medallist Joran Kweekel to work his magic on home soil. The Dutchman will be certainly one to watch for the future but this week has the tough challenge of dealing with qualification before any desires on main draw domination can enter his mind.
