Tennis player Talon Grekbauer will play first against Marc-Andrea Haussler in their Davis Cup clash with Switzerland on Friday. Botic van de Zandschulp will next compete against Leandro Riedi, KNLTB reports.
The Netherlands are clearly the favourites, but national coach Paul Haarhuis warns against underestimating. “On paper it might seem like a hurdle to overcome, but Reddy has started great this year with 10 wins. That included the final against Borna Coric. A year ago, Hausler was 40th in the world rankings. “If I can get “This place, you really have something to offer.”
On opening day, matches begin at 2 p.m. On Saturday, the first doubles match in the program will be held, followed by two singles matches. In addition to Jerek Bohr and Van de Zandschulp, Gijs Brouwer and doubles specialists Wesley Kohlhoff and Jean-Julien Roger were also selected.
The Netherlands will meet Switzerland at Martine Plaza in Groningen. This is a qualifying round match. The winner earns a place in the group stage of the Davis Cup Finals.
