participation 'If someone like Federer plays, there is much more attention from media. When we announced his appearance, thousands of extra tickets were sold,' the 1996 Wimbledon winner said. He also added that the presence of top-ranked players like Federer and Rafael Nadal helped in the stands being sold-out.
Krajicek also spoke about countryman Robin Haase's potential: 'I will not count out that a Dutch player will ever win a Grand Slam. You have to be lucky, but why can't Robin Haase win such a big tournament? He improved a lot last year.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer trains in Rotterdam, to play Bemelmans in first round
