Alex de Minaur is one of the stand-out young players currently on the ATP tour. The 22-year-old represents Australia on the international stage but has Uruguayan and Spanish heritage.

His father Anibal is from Uruguay and his mother Esther is from Spain. His parents met in Sydney, when Esther came to work as a waitress in Anibal’s restaurant. As a result, De Minaur was born in the city of Sydney but has dual Australian and Spanish citizenship.

He started playing tennis aged 3 in the Sydney Private Tennis Academy at the Parkside Tennis Courts in Kogarah Bay. His first coach was Kerry Dock before Cindy Dock took over the role of teaching him the ropes in the game.

He’s also been mentored by Aussie great Lleyton Hewitt, although they’ve never worked together in an official capacity.

And after some success in the junior ranks – he won the 2016 Australian Open junior boys doubles title alongside Blake Ellis – he turned pro in 2015.

Grand Slam success has thus far eluded De Minaur. However, he’s won 5 titles in men’s singles competition and also won 1 doubles title.

His best Grand Slam showing up until now has been in the 2020 US Open. There, De Minaur made it to the quarterfinals – the first time he’d made the last eight in a Slam.
