Kyvan Rietkerk (2005) is one of the top Dutch recruits looking for a strong and ambitious college tennis team to join in the Fall of 2023. Kyvan is ranked as high as #155 on the ITF Juniors ranking and is currently ranked #2 at the Dutch U18. He has won multiple national junior championships in singles and doubles and has represented the Netherlands in many different occassions during summer and winter cups.
Kyvan started playing tennis at a young age and has always been part of the Dutch national selection. While competing in national and international tournaments, Kyvan steadily improved his tennis and has ambitions to turn pro after college. In addition to working with the Dutch federation, he has been privately coaches by Jeroen Joling, one of the Netherlands' top private coaches and former coach of the University of Arkansas women's team.
Kyvan is physically strong, moves well and reads the game like no other. He is known for his competitiveness and fighting spirit, and fights for every single point.
We've seen him win many matches coming back from behind, and know that he will be a great asset for many college teams.
Kyvan likes to dictate points from the baseline with his forehand. His backhand is very steady and he does very well in coming forward to finish points at the net.
His second serve is one of the best in the game. He uses it to open up the court, to put pressure on opponents and to set up the point to be able to attack.
During his time in the US, Kyvan wants to improves his tennis game even more and grow as a person. His ultimate goal is to turn pro after his time in college.
