Botic van de Zandschulp has made a giant leap of 55 places in the world ranking thanks to his remarkable performance at the US Open.

The 25-year-old Dutchman found his name on Monday in 62nd place.

Van de Zandschulp started the Grand Slam tournament in New York two weeks ago as number 117 in the world.

He made it to the quarterfinals as a qualifier, where he lost to Daniil Medvedev.

The Russian defeated Novak Djokovic in the final on Sunday and thus kept the Serb from his 21st Grand Slam title.

Medvedev lost only one set at the US Open, in the quarterfinals against Van de Zandschulp.

Nobody makes a big jump this week than Van de Zandschulp's 55 places in the world ranking.

Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi and American Jenson Brooksby rise 'only' eighteen places.

For the first time in more than two years, a Dutch tennis player is now again in the top 100 in the world.

Robin Haase was the last in August 2019.

He has since dropped to 224th place in the ATP ranking.

In addition to Van de Zandschulp, Tallon Groet (133rd) is also above Haase.
