Botic Van De Zandschulp v Jordan Thompson Head to Head

Zandschulp and Thompson have never been involved in a head-to-head meeting before. While the Dutchman has come on by leaps and bounds this season, the Australian hasn’t been at his competitive best tallying as many wins as losses this season. However, it would be a fresh start for both as they cross swords for the very first time, at Stockholm on Sunday.

Zandschulp Hopes to Rediscover St. Petersburg Form

After taking giant strides at the US Open, recording his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final appearance as a qualifier, Zandshulp proved beyond any reasonable doubt that his success at the Flushing Meadows was no flash in the pan.

The Dutchman went a step further at St. Petersburg, reaching the last four of the tournament on the back of a sensational streak of win, including one over Russian superstar Andrey Rublev in the quarter-finals.

While his campaign was cut short in the semifinal by eventual champion, Croat Marin Cilic, the run to the last-four itself would have given the 63rd-ranked Dutchman a world of belief and confidence going into his first-round clash at the Stockholm Open on Sunday.

However, between Zandschulp and a place in the second round stands seasoned Australian star Jordan Thompson. With no career head-to-head meetings to fall back on, the Dutchman would have to go into the clash trusting his own sills more tan his opponent’s weaknesses.

And, if he can play anywhere close to the level he showed at the US Open or at St. Petersburg, he will be  a handful against the Australian who is still searching for his best form this season.

Thompson Eyeing Turnaround in Fortunes

After suffering back-to-back opening-round defeats to South African Kevin Anderson at the Indian Wells Masters and Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina at the European Open in Antwerp, Belgium, Thompson took a break from the Tour and tried his hand at a couple of Challenger events.

However, his returns were mixed bag at best as he crashed out in the first round of one of these events and reached the quarter-finals in the next to redeem himself.

Returning to Tour action with the Stockholm Open, Thompson will open his campaign against Botic Van De Zandschulp on Sunday.

It goes without saying that against an opponent, who reached his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final and came close to lifting his first-ever Tour title at St. Petersburg this year, the 68th-ranked Thompson has to be at his best to get the result in his favor.

Zandschulp v Thompson Prediction and Tip

One dares say that Zandschulp, on current form, will start as a slight favorite in this first-round clash. However, Thompson has the game to beat the best of opponents on his day.
