NRT*** Rollers Smashing Echt
My second national tournament of 2018 was advancing in June. After winning the tournament in Goirle, I wanted to win this one as well. After a tight last round robin match and two good wins, I won this tournament! The doubles on the other hand, ended in third place after many tight matches.
Open Paratennis de Cagnes-sur-Mer
The second week of June, I was in Nice for my third ITF Future. It was also my third final and my second consecutive win!
In April, I played the Lithuanian Open. This was a future and after the not finished tournament in Portugal, I was driven to win this one. And so I did!
The second week of April, Portugal was the place to be. I played my second tournament of 2018 here and last year this was where I played my first ever international tournament. I ended in second place back then, so this year I was rooting for the first place! I was doing a pretty good job, despite the terrible weather and reached the finals in both doubels as singles. Unfortunately, these could not be played due to severe rain and so I went home without any real result...
Disappointing start of the season. The goal was to make it to the semi finals, but unfortunately I lost in the quarter finals. In doubles I made it to the semi finals, where I lost against number one seed. My preperations for Italy were not great, due to illnes, but I still feel like the semi finals could have been possible.
Donna on Talentboek.nl
After meeting Yvonne van Gennip, we had a talk about her foundation and all that she does for the sportstalents in the Netherlands. I learned about Talentboek.nl. And since today I am on the site too. Will you help me further in my career with an (anonimous)donation?

Goed Geld Gala Vriendenloterij
Through the Esther Vergeer Foundation, I got in contact with the Dutch "Vriendenloterij". They asked me to hand out a cheque on their "Goed Geld Gala". Here they divide the money earned the year before, over multiple foundations. I handed out a cheque to Yvonne van Gennip her foundation that helps sportstalents on their way to the top!
Promotion fotoshoot with my first sponsor Etkon
One nice picture is all that we wanted to draw some attention. My first sponsor, Etkon, is a company focused on media solutions. They helped us out and did a great fotoshoot. So instead of one nice picture we have multiple! :D
New sponsor: Klupp Sportswear BV
In February, I got to welcome a new sponsor, Klupp Sportswear (owner is Pim Blokland!). They are going to provide me with training, match and tournament clothing. Black and white it is, which is fitting me great, because I always choose those colors myself! A good cooperation.
