ATP, Wimbledon > Botic Van De Zandschulp, after his victory in the first round: “When your name is Jannik Sinner or Carlos Alcaraz, you can afford to choose which tournament you will play or not”

Not far from burnout a few weeks ago after his defeat at the start of Roland-Garros, the Dutchman Botic Van De Zandschulp, after spending some time away from the circuit, seems to be doing better as evidenced by his victory in the first round of Wimbledon against the local and guest Liam Broady.

Questioned by our colleagues atUbitennisl’ac­tuel 97e The world player particularly mentioned the stifling side of the ATP calendar.

“Everyone plays a lot. Some players play every week. I think that’s also new. I think everyone plays more and more these days. When your name is Jannik Sinner or Carlos Alcaraz, you can afford to choose which tournament you’re going to play or not. But I think you have to be very good mentally to be able to skip tournaments. You shouldn’t be afraid of losing two or three places in the ranking because others are playing. You have to take care of yourself physically and mentally to play a good full year. I think it’s difficult to play 35 tournaments like some players do, but everyone has their own approach.”
