Van de Zandschulp, who acted as executioner for Feliciano López in the first round, is the tenth Dutchman in the round of 16 of the third ‘major’ on the calendar. He teams up with the amazing Tim Van Rijthoven. Since 2002 this has not happened with Richard Krajicek and Sjeng Schalken.

the beginning

Botic grew up tennis in Wageningen where both his mother and brother played tennis occasionally. The number one in his country benefited from the creation of the Amstelveen center to make the leap to the ‘top100’ last year. He became part of the elite on September 13 after the quarterfinals of the US Open.

Van de Zandschulp is into the big stages as he proves the fact that last season he played all four after passing the previous one. Before him, only Elias Ymer (2015) and Frank Dancevic (2011) had achieved it.
