Alex de Minaur odds

Could Alex de Minaur be the great hope that Australian tennis has been crying out for?

The 18-year-old represents a growing depth in men’s singles down under, joining the likes of Nick Kyrgios, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Bernard Tomic on the professional tour.

Aussies are just praying Alex actually likes playing the sport.

De Minaur was born in New South Wales to a Spanish mother and Uruguayan father in 1999. After moving to Spain with his family in 2004, he returned in 2012 as a young tennis phenom, passionate about playing for Australia despite growing up overseas.

After becoming a pro in 2015, de Minaur eventually made a splash two years later as an 18-year-old, taking some big-name scalps to elevate his name into the national spotlight, gaining entry to his first Australian Open.

De Minaur is yet to build many weapons to his game, as highlighted by a weak first serve that yields a relatively low percentage of easy points.

Comparisons have been drawn to former Australian tennis champion Lleyton Hewitt, who played a similar, full-court press style of tennis that demanded great fitness and determination.

De Minaur will have to improve his serving and his one-on-one stats to compete with the best, but it looks like he’s on the way.

De Minaur has take over the mantle as Australia’s top tennis player from Nick Kyrgios in 2022, with fellow current player Bernard Tomic another to have held that mantle.

Is Alex de Minaur good enough to win the Australian Open?

The quick and easy answer is no.

Not yet.

Yes, de Minaur has improved drastically of late, winning the Sydney International, Atlanta Open and Zhuhai Championships in 2019, but he will need to continue to refine his game to compete against the best consistently.

While we can’t recommend a bet on Alex to win the Australian Open, we do think he is capable of causing some excitement in early rounds. While he’s in good form, with a home crowd willing him on, he will be dangerous.
