Alex de Minaur says a challenging 2020 season amid the coronavirus pandemic is “fuelling the hunger” for his bid to climb the rankings this year and achieve his best finish at a major.
- De Minaur says he struggled while in lockdown at his Spanish base last year
- He achieved his best result at a major in 2020 by making the US Open quarter-finals
- The 21-year-old won an ATP Tour tournament in Antalya earlier this month
De Minaur, Australia’s top-ranked men’s player, made a lightning start to the new season earlier this month when he won the fourth ATP Tour title of his career in Turkey.
The world number 23 entered the 2021 season off the back of his best showing at a major, a quarter-final appearance at the US Open in New York.
