Botic at 33/1 - a home hope at a big price...

Wednesday 9th February 2022

A brief message from me this morning, as we look to get a player in the book for ATP Rotterdam.

Play starts from 10am UK time, and the bookies take down their Outright Winner markets during the day’s matches. Hence the need to sneak in and grab a price while we can.

The good news is the man we’re backing, Botic Van De Zandschulp, isn’t actually playing today. Meaning that if you miss the window this morning, you’ll get another chance to back him outright either late tonight, or early tomorrow morning.

The 26-year-old Dutchman is something of a late bloomer on the ATP Tour. Botic had a breakthrough season in 2021, reaching the US Open quarter finals as a surprise package. He now sits at the edge of the world’s Top 50.

Van De Zandschulp is at his best on indoor hard courts. He’s still searching for a first full ATP title. But on the lower-tier circuits, six of his nine trophies have come indoors. Contributing to an impressive career indoor hard-court match win-loss record of 100-34 (75%).

Add in the home-factor of playing indoors in Rotterdam this week, and a draw that gives him a puncher’s chance of reaching the semi finals (he’s already won his 1st round match, 2-0).

Botic was 40/1 on day one this week. After winning his first match, he’s still available at 33/1, 30/1, and 25/1, and those are good Each Way prices for this outsider of interest…

Last October, we backed Van De Zandschulp at 30/1 in Antwerp. That came at the start of an end-of-season run that saw him win eight out of 11 ATP matches indoors, and reach the St Petersburg semi finals. Still keen to improve, he can go one better and reach a first final this year. And why not here in the Netherlands in front of a home crowd.
