The Dutchman from Eindhoven, the Netherlands came to Florida State University in the Fall of 1986. With no intercollegiate tennis in his native homeland, Haarhuis began his career at tiny Armstrong State in Savannah, Georgia.

He breezed through two years of competition at the school (64-2) before transferring to Florida State. His last season at Armstrong State, Haarhuis posted an unblemished 35-0 record. His addition to the Florida State roster elevated the Seminoles to a higher level of competitiveness.

His inaugural season with the Seminoles, Haarhuis went 35-5 in singles competition and 25-5 in doubles play. His winning the first ever Men's Intercollegiate Invitational Tennis Championships in Panama City, Florida was a tennis shot heard round the nation.

At one point, Haarhuis had 24 consecutive wins. He concluded his junior season by winning MVP honors in the Metro Conference Tournament. He took both the number one singles crown and, with teammate Henner Lenhardt, the doubles title. Haarhuis and Lenhardt were rewarded with an invitation to the NCAA Tennis Championships doubles play.

Victories over several pros during the Summer of 1987 in Holland proved a successful glimpse into Haarhuis' tennis future.

He became the fist men's tennis player from Florida State to earn a trip to the NCAA Championships since Joey Rive.

When Haarhuis' Florida State career ended, he had built a 72-9 record over two years. Each year saw him named the Metro Conference Tournament MVP and make it to the NCAA Tennis Championships.

Since turning pro in 1988, Haaruis has defeated some of the world's best tennis players such as Boris Becker and four-time U.S. Open Champion, John McEnroe.
