Wimbledon, Van De Zandschulp continues to travel strong on grass
Van De Zandschulp continues to travel strong
After stroking the final on the grass at Queen’s, which faded after a defeat to Matteo Berrettini, Botic van de Zandschulp started his Wimbledon adventure as best he could.
In fact, the Dutch tennis player won decisively in three sets (6-2, 6-3, 6-3) over Iberian Feliciano Lopez.
A match without history between the Spaniard and the athlete from the Netherlands, who in the second round will face the winner between Finland’s Ruusuvuori and Japan’s Nishioka.
This year’s edition of Wimbledon will exceptionally not award points valid for the Atp and Wta rankings. The world’s two professional tennis circuits have distanced themselves from the decision of the London Slam organizers, who banned Russian and Belarusian tennis players from participating because of the war in Ukraine, a move branded a “dangerous precedent” by the Atp.
