Alex de Minaur has been a busy man since we last saw him at UTS Oslo. The Demon, as he is known by our die-hard fans, flew from Oslo to Rotterdam after losing to Andrey Rublev in the first UTS final of 2024, and promptly found himself in another final.

After defeating Andrey “Rublo” Rublev in the quarter-finals in Rotterdam, “Demon” powered past Grigor Dimitrov to reach his 15th career ATP final – on his 25th birthday.

Though he was not able to find a way past Jannik Sinner on Sunday at the ABN Amro Open, De Minaur’s productive week takes him to a new ranking milestone.

The Aussie climbs two spots up the ladder to a career-high ranking of No.9.

“I’ll get you back next time,” De Minaur told Sinner on court after the match, before adding. “I want to say thanks to my team, my family, my friends and all the supporters throughout all the years. We are slowly getting to where we want to be, and [this week] was another big step in the right direction. We’re going to fight for bigger and better things soon.”

We’ll be seeing more of Demon this year, both on the ATP Tour and at UTS.

De Minaur currently in second place in the Race Ranking by 15 points, just five points behind Rublev. The UTS Grand Final will be the fourth event this year, two other ones being due to happen in the USA in August and in Europe in October.
