29.10.2021, 21:12 #News #Best

The Dutch tennis player Botik van de Zandschulp, who came off the qualifications into the main draw in St. Petersburg, outplayed Andrey Rublev in straight sets – 6/3, 6/4. The Russian failed to show his best tennis and lost to the lower-ranked player  who despite the gap in rankings was stronger today. 

 

“First time for me , first time in the semis. It feels amazing, I played a great match. I played a smart match. I am happy to be through”, – Botik said in the interview on court. 

 

He will vie with the Croat Marin Cilic for a berth in the finals. 

 

“He made the final last week in Moscow. He is playing great at the moment. I think he is serving well and playing really aggressive. It is gonna be an interesting match” – the Dutch shared his thoughts on the upcoming semis against the Croat.
