Bio He is a Dutch professional tennis player. Van de Zandschulp has a career high ranking of world No. 57 in singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), achieved on November 15, 2021. He is the current Dutch No. 1 men's singles player. He also has a career high doubles ranking of world No. 232, first achieved on October 23, 2017. He has won one ATP Challenger singles title in Hamburg and one ATP Challenger doubles title in Alphen.

Van de Zandschulp's breakthrough happened at the 2021 US Open when he became the third qualifier in US Open history to reach the quarterfinals of the tournament. He reached this stage after defeating seeded Casper Ruud and Diego Schwartzman before losing to eventual champion Daniil Medvedev. His finish made him the only man to progress to the main draw of all four majors through qualifying in one year. Despite having lost the match, he was also Medvedev's only opponent to take a set from him on his way to winning the tournament.

Van de Zandschulp qualified for the first time in the main singles draw of a Grand Slam tournament at the 2021 Australian Open, where he was defeated by fellow qualifier Carlos Alcaraz. As a result, he reached a career-high of No. 145 on February 22, 2021 and was the No. 1 Dutch tennis singles player for a brief period from February 8, 2021 until March 22, 2021.

He also qualified for the second major in 2021 and in his career at the 2021 French Open and reached the second round for his first Grand Slam win with a defeat over seed No. 19 Hubert Hurkacz.

On June 23, 2021 he was upgraded to the main draw at Wimbledon, for his third Major debut in a row in 2021, as a lucky loser following the late withdrawal of the 4th seed Dominic Thiem. He beat qualifier Grégoire Barrère in the first round and lost to 7th seed Matteo Berrettini in the second round. In July following Wimbledon, as the second seed, he reached the final at the 2021 Dutch Open (tennis) in Amersfoort. He was defeated by his compatriot and top seed Tallon Griekspoor in the final. He became the No. 1 Dutch player again on 30 August 2021 at World No. 117 in the rankings.

Despite having only 5 ATP tour matches wins before the US Open, Van de Zandschulp qualified for the last major of the year, thus becoming the only man to progress to the main draw of all four majors through qualifying in one year. He reached the third round of a major for the first time, defeating world No. 11 and eight seed Casper Ruud. He next defeated Facundo Bagnis to reach the fourth round. There he defeated world No. 14 and eleventh seed Diego Schwartzman in five sets to reach his maiden major quarterfinals, where he lost to eventual champion Daniil Medvedev. He was the only player to take a set off of Medvedev in the tournament. He became only the third male qualifier in the history of the US Open (after Nicolas Escudé in 1999 and Gilles Muller in 2008) to reach the quarterfinals. He also became the first Dutch man to reach the quarterfinals of a major since Sjeng Schalken at the 2003 US Open and 2004 Wimbledon. As a result he improved 55 spots in the singles rankings, entering the top 100 for the first time in his career at World No. 62 on September 13, 2021.

He made his debut at a Masters 1000 level at the 2021 BNP Paribas Open by qualifying as the top seed into the main draw. He lost to Marcos Giron in the first round in three sets.

At the 2021 St. Petersburg Open, Van de Zandschulp entered as a qualifier and beat Yoshihito Nishioka, Sebastian Korda, and for the biggest win in his career so far, world No.6 and top seed Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals. He lost to Croatian Marin Cilic in the semifinals. At the 2021 Stockholm Open he reached the quarterfinals where he lost to second seed Felix Auger-Aliassime. He entered the top 60 at World No. 57 on November 15, 2021.
