The Greek Talon track qualified for the second round of the Mud Championship in Geneva. The current number 67 in the world rankings was too strong in three sets for American Tommy Paul, who is 34th worldwide. The score became 7-5, 6-7, 6-4 for the Nieuw-Vennep tennis player.

It was his first win in a long time in the main table of the ATP Championship for the Greek track. North Hollander suffered a neck injury that forced him to withdraw from the clay court tournaments in Barcelona, ​​Munich and Madrid.

At the beginning of February, he reached the second round of the ATP Championship for the last time at the ABN Amro World Tennis Championships in Rotterdam. He was then eliminated in the first round in Marseille, Indian Wells, Miami, Marrakech, Monte Carlo and Rome. In the Italian capital, he achieved two victories in the qualifying tournament.

Roland Garros

As the Greek track continues the battle in Switzerland this week, six other Dutch tennis players are trying to make it to the main Grand Slam schedule of Roland Garros through qualifying. Hoofdurber Jesper de Jong made an attempt at men, as did Tim van Reethoven. For the women, Suzanne Lammens, Rachel Hogenkamp, ​​Ariane Hartono and Leslie Patinama Kerkhove will play on the gravel in Paris. They need to win 3 matches to get to the main chart. Only Lamens will be at work on Monday.

Greekpoor, Botic van de Zandschulp and Arantxa Rus were directly accepted into the second major tournament of the year based on their position in the world rankings (within the top 100).
