After Botic van de Zandschulp, a second Dutch tennis player is approaching the global top hundred. Tallon Greek track has been in top form in the challenger circuit in recent weeks and already booked its thirteenth victory in a row in Naples.
The 25-year old in Haarlem, who was born in Haarlem, was too strong for Spaniard Alvaro Lopez San Martin: 6-3, 6-3. If he also wins the next round, he will be one of the best 100 tennis players in the world.
“It’s going well, but the body is starting to run out a bit,” says Greek track. “But I won’t be back in action until Friday, so I can recharge the battery.”
Greek track has already won another challenger tournament in Naples in recent weeks and also triumphed in Murcia, Spain. The last time Greek track lost a match, he faced the number one in the world. In New York, he lost in the second round of the US Open to Novak Djokovic (2-6, 3-6, 2-6).
Due to his performance in 2022, Greek track is almost certain of a direct qualification for the main tournament of the Australian Open, which starts on Monday 20 January.
