This looks like one of the more open quarter-finals at the Davis Cup between teams built on a collective spirit over individuals. That being said, world number 24 Alex de Minaur has quietly gone about enjoying possibly the best season of his young career with a sixth ATP title won at the Atlanta Open and an impressive run to the round of 16 at Wimbledon that came within inches of a quarter-final. Dutch number one Botic Van de Zandschulp made the last eight of a Grand Slam at last season’s US Open but despite impressing for much of this second season of success his form has been drifting since the late summer with five defeats from his last eight matches. Both the Netherlands and Australia have excellent options in Men’s Doubles if the tie needs deciding, with Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell winning a first Grand Slam title together this season at Wimbledon and Wesley Koolhof ending this season as the number one pair alongside tour partner Neal Skupski.


There is plenty up in the air in this fixture with Alex de Minaur and Botic van de Zandschulp facing off for the first time on Tuesday but the young Aussie usually excels in international tennis, particularly when playing for Australia. De Minaur beat Matteo Berrettini at the ATP Cup this January for a career-best ranking win at the time but he only recently broke that by shocking Daniil Medvedev in three sets at the Paris Masters. That kind of form should see him edge past Van de Zandschulp, probably in three sets, so much of this tie rests on the second options opening battle. The likelihood that it will be world number 95 Thanasi Kokkinakis facing off against number 96 Tallon Griekspoor suggests the stakes could not be closer here but the indoor conditions probably just-about suit Kokkinakis over the Dutchman, as does recent form. The Aussie made his ATP Finals debut in the doubles last week, winning one of three matches with Nick Kyrgios in Turin, and that more recent match practice could tell against Griekspoor who has been enduring a tough second half of 2022.

If the match goes to a doubles decider the Netherlands have to be favoured off the back of world number one Wesley Koolhof’s incredible recent success. Koolhok and Matwe Middelkoop were inspired in taking their nation here at Great Britain’s expense back in September and the indoor conditions suit the Dutch pair over Ebden and Purcell. Australia, then, know their best chance is winning this in two. This is a tricky match to follow in the markets due to these ramifications but take De Minaur to win his match if possible. Otherwise, Australia should be able edge this 2-0 to avoid a tense doubles battle.
