Tennis player Gijs Brouwer has reached the main table for a major tournament for the first time. World No. 184 won in the final round of US Open qualifiers 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-2 from Britain’s Paul Gibb.
Brewer, who made his ATP debut in Houston earlier this year and reached the quarter-finals there, will face Adrian Mannarino in the first round on Tuesday.
For information on the Frenchman, the 26-year-old Brouwer can contact Botic van de Zandschulp. At the ATP Championships in Winston-Salem, the best Dutch tennis player (ATP-23) in the semi-finals bowed 6-0, 6-4 ahead of Mannarino, ranked 65th in the world.
Van de Zandschulp and Tim van Reethoven now know which qualifiers they will play against in New York. Van de Zandschulp will meet Czech Tomas Mack (ATP-126) and China’s Van Rithoven, Zhang Zizen (ATP-138). Both will play on Monday.
The other Dutch players in singles know who their opponents are. Tallon groenpoor (ATP-46) plays Argentine Federico Coria (ATP-78) and Arantxa Rus, ranked 96th in the world, and meets American Shelby Rogers (WTA-31).
