Botic van de Zandschulp against Dominic Stricker head to head
The two have never met before.
Van de Zandschulp was consistent in 2022
Botic van de Zandschulp is 37-25 on the tour this year. The Dutchman has been a consistent performer this year but has been struggling a bit lately.
In the last two tournaments, Van de Zandschulp won his opening round matches in Tel Aviv and Astana, but lost in the second round of both tournaments.
The world No. 34 had reached their first ATP final in Munich this year but had to retire early in the first set due to injury. He was also a semi-finalist at Queen’s and Winston-Salem and had his best results at the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.
Van de Zandschulp had achieved a career-best No. 1 rank. 22 in August but has fallen out of the top 30 due to his recent dip, but he has shown his ability to win games on a regular basis and has been eliminated from the first round of a tournament on very few occasions this year.
He hopes to win another opening round match on Tuesday.
