Jannik Sinner is set to play his first match since winning the Australian Open in Rotterdam, where he serves as top seed at the ABN Amro Open.

His first opponent will be Botic van de Zandschulpwho was also his opening-round opponent at the Australian Open—with a possible second round against former world No. 6 Gaël Monfils.

Sinner has played just one official tournament in 2024, where he captured his maiden major victory in Melbourne, where he toppled 10-time champion Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and rallied from two sets down to defeat Daniil Medvedev in the final.


The victory made him the third Italian man to win a major singles title, and only the second man born in the 2000s to win a major title. Since the 2023 US Open in September, the 22-year-old has won 27 of his last 29 matches, having finished runner-up at the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin and led Italy to victory at the 2023 Davis Cup Finals last fall.

Sinner leads Van de Zandschulp 1-0 in their head-to-head, having played for the first time at the Australian Open in January, and likely aims to better his 2023 finish in Rotterdam when he lost in the final to Medvedev.

Medvedev withdrew from Rotterdam before the draw was made, but the ABN Amro Open also features top seeds Andrey Rublev, Holger Rune, and Hubert Hurkacz, the latter landing in Sinner’s half of the draw.
