Netherland’s Botic van de Zandschulp takes on France’s Adrian Mannarino in the semi-final round of the 2022 ATP Winston-Salem Open.
In Munich earlier this year, Botic van de Zandschulp participated in a final, but he was forced to leave because of breathing difficulties. A few days later, in top shape, he arrived back in Madrid. The Dutch player received his big break in the US Open last year, making it all the way to the quarterfinals, so this performance is not unexpected. His draw wasn’t too bad because he didn’t play anyone really formidable all week. Even yet, he won every set, which is very difficult to do on such courts. In tiebreaks as well, Botic excelled, although things have just been running smoothly for a week. With a 32-21 record overall and a 13-9 mark on hard courts, he has had a fantastic year.
Adrian has had a really good year, going 26-25, but he’s 16-12 on hard courts. The possibility of making it to a final will excite the Frenchman, and he will undoubtedly attempt. In Winston-Salem, he found his groove after a few unsuccessful matches in recent weeks. This week, the Frenchman defeated a number of challenging players without dropping a single set. Botic is faced with a serious puzzle in this situation because Emil Ruusuvuori, Albert Ramos, and Maxime Cressy were unable to handle him.

This is a highly intriguing contest between the two men who have likely played the best tennis in Winston-Salem this week. They both will be yearning for this final.
