Alex de Minaur expresses gratitude for his smooth journey into the second week of the prestigious Wimbledon tournament. The Australian tennis star, known as Demon, progressed with relative ease to the fourth round, marking just the second time he has managed to reach this stage at SW19. Demonstrating a streak of good fortune, De Minaur achieved this feat through two consecutive straight-set victories and a fortuitous walkover due to Lucas Pouille’s injury withdrawal.

De Minaur, a seasoned player with a notable career in Grand Slam singles competitions, had never before experienced the benefit of a walkover win in his 74-match history at major events. The unexpected withdrawal of Pouille provided De Minaur with what he described as the most stress-free passage he has encountered into the business end of a Grand Slam tournament.

The path to the fourth round unfolded smoothly for De Minaur as many of his fellow competitors, including his upcoming opponent Arthur Fils, faced frustrating delays caused by rain interruptions. De Minaur’s route was particularly untroubled on a day marked by rainy weather and postponements, allowing him to relax and prepare for the next phase of the tournament.

De Minaur, who now holds the status of favorite to secure his first quarter-final appearance at SW19, acknowledged his good fortune in navigating the tournament draws smoothly. The Australian player expressed appreciation for Pouille’s sportsmanship in informing him early of his decision to withdraw, granting De Minaur ample time to adjust his plans for the day.

De Minaur’s next challenge comes in the form of Arthur Fils, a dynamic 20-year-old French talent ranked world No 34. Fils displayed commendable resilience in a hard-fought match against Russia’s Roman Safiullin, eventually emerging victorious after a grueling three-and-a-quarter-hour battle.

De Minaur’s consistent performances in recent Grand Slam tournaments highlight his growing confidence and competitive prowess. With seven appearances in the second week out of the last 11 major events, De Minaur is establishing himself among the elite players in the tennis world. His string of comfortable victories in Wimbledon sets the stage for an exciting journey towards further success in the prestigious tournament.
