Ruben comes into action this week at the Men's 1 tournament of Den Brandt in Antwerp. He managed to advance smoothly to the semifinals.
In the first round Ruben easily put Max Van Nunen aside with 6-3 and 6-1. Also in the quarterfinals he had little trouble in his match against Liam Dielen, he convincingly won with 6-2 and 6-1. Ruben was happy that he could play a tournament again: "After a while, I got bored during the last months. I have always kept training, but it is nice to be able to play a match again. I am ready to start back on the ATP circuit, although I doubt we can start in mid-August. "
In the semifinal Ruben will face Michael Geerts.
