Added Ruud: “It has been an honor competing for Team Europe these past two years, playing on the same team with an unbelievable group of champions, and with Bjorn Borg as our captain.. 

 “I have gained so much from the experience. In Vancouver my goal will be to do all I can to help Team Europe win back the Cup.”
