Van Rijthoven beat second seed Auger-Aliassime in the semis and finally top seed Medvedev in the final of the Rosmalen Championships.
Dutch tennis player Tim Van Rijthoven attracted a lot of attention earlier this month at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships where he beat the likes of Daniil Medvedev and Felix Auger-Aliassime to win the title. Van Rijthoven’s first big success in the competition came in the round of 16 when he beat third seed Taylor Fritz. The Dutchman would then go on to defeat second seed Auger-Aliassime in the semis and finally top seed Medvedev in the final. Nobody expects the 25-year-old to win Wimbledon but he certainly can have a massive impact.
Van Rijthoven’s first test at The Championships will be Argentinian player Federico Delbonis. Delbonis has not had a great season on grass in 2022, participating in only one ATP event after the French Open. In Paris, he was beaten by Alexander Zverev in the second round. The Agentine then took part in the Mallorca Open where he was ousted in the round of 32 by Antoine Bellier.
Van Rijthoven and Delbonis are scheduled to face each other on Monday, June 27 in the first round of the 2022 Championships. The timing of the match has not been decided yet. The Championships is scheduled to begin on June 27 and go on until July 10. There are a number of exciting matches on opening day as the likes of Djokovic, Sinner, Murray, Norrie and Alcaraz will be in action.
128 players enter The Championships’ main draw every year, both for the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Singles categories.
