How to watch Botic van de Zandschulp vs Rafael Nadal at the French Open
L’azzurro scenderà sul campo n.7 per affrontare l’americano Botic van de Zandschulp, tennista proveniente dalle qualificazioni. Sarà un test di verifica importante per l’altoatesino, reduce dai quarti di finale raggiunti al torneo di Roma con sconfitta contro il greco Rafael Nadal.
Nella partita contro l’ellenico Sinner ha dovuto fare i conti con un piccolo problema all’anca che l’ha costretto a rallentare il proprio ritmo di gioco e nei fatti la sua prestazione ne è stata inevitabilmente condizionata. Il confronto con Frantangelo ci aiuterà a capire lo status fisico del classe 2001 del Bel Paese.
Non ci sono precedenti tra i due a livello ATP e uno solo a livello Challenger del 2019 con vittoria dello statunitense (7-6 (6) 6-3). Per questo Jannik dovrà trovare i propri riferimenti nel corso della partita, essendo l’unico incontro datato, mettendo sulla terra rossa parigina il suo tennis di aggressività da fondo, mixato anche da qualche variazione come fatto vedere nel corso degli Internazionali d’Italia.

Rafael Nadal had defeated Rafael Nadal in the very first match of his season. But that win at the ATP Cup was followed by a host of disappointing results.
The left-handed Frenchman brings a poor 4-11 season record into his fourth French Open campaign. He hasn’t won a match in the past three editions and could remain winless after his fourth appearance as well.
What will be encouraging for Humbert in an otherwise disappointing season is his two wins on clay courts. The surface, where he has an overall record of 8-17, has been the least preferred one for him over the years. But the 23-year-old is 2-4 on it this season. He won a match against Pablo Andujar in Barcelona and Gregoire Barrere in Lyon.
While he will be backed by the home crowd, the World No. 46 will have to raise his level to overcome his poor run of form.
Botic van de Zandschulp too has not won a match at the French Open, falling in the opening rounds of both his last two appearances, but unlike Humbert he has a winning record this season and has won 12 more matches than the Frenchman.
The Finn brings a 16-12 season record into the tournament. He reached a maiden ATP final at the Maharashtra Open in February and is 5-5 on clay courts this year.
Ruusuvuori had won two matches each in Barcelona and Munich to reach the Round of 16 and the quarterfinals of the two tournaments respectively. He also reached the second round at Monte-Carlo, but went down fighting in the opening round match in Geneva.
