Botic van de Zandschulp needs one more victory to qualify for the Roland Garros main schedule for the first time.

The Dutchman reached the third and final round of the qualifying tournament on Wednesday without any problems.

Richel Hogenkamp was eliminated from the women without a chance.

The 25-year-old Van de Zandschulp was too strong in his second round match for Manuel Guinard, the number 297 in the world: 6-3 and 6-2.

De Veenendaler made just more unnecessary mistakes, but also a lot more winners than his French opponent (twenty to six).

In the first qualifying round, Van de Zandschulp was still too strong for the Argentinian Leonardo Mayer in three sets.

To reach the main schedule, the Dutch number 154 has to deal with the Russian Andrey Kuznetsov or the Ukrainian Illya Marchenko.

Van de Zandschulp never reached the main tournament in Paris in his career.

Last year he stranded in the second round of the qualifying tournament.

That was only the second time that he participated in the qualification of a Grand Slam tournament.

At the beginning of this year, Van de Zandschulp experienced a scoop by reaching the main schedule of a Grand Slam for the first time at the Australian Open.

The first round was immediately the end station for the Dutchman.

Tallon Griekspoor is also still in the race to qualify for Roland Garros.

The leader of Dutch tennis - he occupies the 131st position in the ATP ranking - takes on the Italian Alessandro Giannessi in the second qualifying round.

Robin Haase stranded in the qualifying tournament on Tuesday.

Hogenkamp went down without a chance

There was little Dutch success among the women.

Hogenkamp went down in two sets in two sets against Colombian María Camila Osorio Serrano: 4-6, 0-6.

The 29-year-old Hogenkamp started the match well by breaking the number 98 of the world ranking immediately in the first game, but the Gelderlander was already broken back at her first service.

At the end of that set she finally got the decisive break (4-6), after which she let it go in the second act (0-6).

Hogenkamp only managed to reach the Roland Garros main schedule twice: in 2017 and 2018. In 2018, she was eliminated in the first round by five-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova.

Due to the elimination of Hogenkamp, ​​only Kiki Bertens and Arantxa Rus are the Dutch representatives at Roland Garros.

They have automatically qualified for the main tournament as top hundred players.

Just like Hogenkamp, ​​Lesley Pattinama-Kerkhove was stranded in the qualifications.
