Respiratory problems prevented Van de Zandschulp in his first ATP Finals

Van de Zandschulp hopes to prepare for Roland Garros in Madrid. The second Grand Slam tournament of the year starts on May 22.

Van de Zandschulp is the first Dutchman to reach the ATP final since 2016. At that time Robin Haase played the final in Gstaad. Haase remains the last Dutchman to win an ATP title. The resident of The Hague won the Kitzbühel tournament in 2012.

Soft start by Van de Zandschulp

Van de Zandschulp and 19-year-old Rune played in their first ATP Finals. The Dutchman, who is 40th in the world rankings, had the best start and took a 4-1 lead. The seventy world champion and former Roland Garros junior first, Rune then continued his service for the first time.

In the long sixth game, Van de Zandschulp missed two game points and cleared three breakpoints, but surrendered in the fourth game. He was later forced to retire due to physical problems.
