Nathan is now in the last year of high school (Athenaeum) at the highest level in the Netherlands in the LOOT system (a special school system which gives the students the possibility to train on top level next to their education). His intention is to continue the combination of studying and playing tennis on the best possible level in the USA at a university.

Nathan started playing tennis at the local tennis club in his village.  Throughout his junior career he has always been ranked top 10 nationally in his age group and fully educated by the Dutch Tennis Federation (KNLTB).  He played all the national junior circuits and in 2012 he reached the quarter-finals of the National Championships under 18. At the moment he has a national open ranking of 142 in singles and 228 doubles 

For many years he is practicing 6 times a week and the last 2 years this is with his coach Michael Schapers, a 6th time Dutch National champion. 

Nathan is a right handed all-round player who‚Äôs strength is that he controls all strokes on a good level. He can play as well from the baseline as serve/volley and so is able to adjust his game when it is necessary. He is mentally strong, tactically knows how to play. As a result of his growing in length this last year, he is specifically working  hard on his physique to get stronger. He is fast and has great footwork. Also in the doubles he performs very well due to his great returns and solid volleys.
