de Minaur cruises into the fourth round
Australia’s Alex de Minaur has matched his fourth round result from 2022 after easily defeating France’s Benjamin Bonzi. The world no. 24 winning the match 7-6(0), 6-2, 6-1.
The scoreline could have been more one-sided as the Australian had several breaks in the first set but allowed himself to get broken back.
Once into the tie-breaker it was all de Minaur. He continued to dominate in sets two and three.
“I’m very happy, I can’t lie,” De Minaur said during his on-court interview.
“Honestly, as a kid this is what you train for. To be playing on this court, in front of you guys, on one of the biggest stages in the world. Every time I get out here, I’ve got to pinch myself.”
de Minaur now awaits the winner for the match between nine-time champion Novak Djokovic and Grigor Dmitrov, a semifinalist in 2017.
