Botic van de Zandschulp couldn’t pull off a stunt against Cameron Norrie in Montreal. In the second round, the Dutchman lost no chance against the Briton, who has been working on an impressive streak in recent weeks: 6-1, 6-2.

In the last month and a half, Norrie has only lost once against Novak Djokovic (in the Wimbledon semi-final) and Daniil Medvedev (in the Los Cobos final). From next week he can again be a top ten player in this form.

Van de Zandschulp missed the chance to take a break in the third game, after which he lost seven games in a row and was already looking at a hopeless deficit.

Leave Medvedev in Alcaraz

Big surprises were the defeats of Medvedev and Carlos Alcaraz, the two highest ranked players in the tournament. Medvedev lost to the fickle Nick Kyrgios, Alcaraz even lost a match point against Tommy Paul.

Next week there is another masters tournament on hard courts in Cincinnati, where Tallon Valentijn planned his return to the tennis court. Tim van Rijthoven was allowed to participate in the qualifications there with a wild card, but does not want to take any risks after his back injury.
