Robin Haase will make his 12th appearance at ATP Rotterdam (home event) this week where he will bid to defend the quarterfinal points that he earned in 2018 — joint-best result in this tournament.Former world #33 Robin Haase has been the quarterfinalist of this tournament twice in the past (2008 and 2018) but the first-round exit is his most frequent result here at Rotterdam, having failed at this stage on six occasions in the past — most recently failing against Gilles Simon in 2016.Robin Haase has made an average start to the season as both of his wins so far in 2019 have come against the out-of-form Guillermo Garcia Lopez and wildcard entrant Dimitar Kuzmanov. He has played eight matches (at all levels) this season, and five of those matches have gone to the distance.Mikhail Kukushkin returns to ATP Rotterdam for the first time since 2013 when he entered the qualifying stages and failed in the first hurdle against Daniel Brands in straight sets, 2-6 6-7.The Kazakh #1 was going through a six-match losing streak on tour between January to the first week of March 2018 and would be hoping to fare better this time around. He made his debut at ATP Sofia last week on the back of a successful Davis Cup campaign and managed to register his season's first win on the main tour (against Laslo Djere).
