Alex De Minaur

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia


6-3, 6-2

Q. How do you feel about having to play twice in one day?
ALEX DE MINAUR: Well, it's things that happen. I think what's more annoying is me having to play on Monday at the Australian Open and not getting helped out as a fellow Aussie at your pretty much home slam.

I think they're punishing Aussies for playing deep in their home tournaments, and I think that should not be what they should be doing.

Q. Did you put in a request to have it delayed?
ALEX DE MINAUR: Yeah. I mean, they came out with the schedule before they even saw who was in the final in weeks past. So I think that's pretty poor.

But, you know, I'm still here. I've got a final now. I've got to reset and do everything I can here and we will see what happens.

Q. How do you get yourself ready for these next hours? What will you do?
ALEX DE MINAUR: Probably jump in the ice bath. It was quite hot out there. I will try and get some food into me and maybe have a nap and just try to refresh.

Q. It was pretty warm. Gilles looked like he was pretty sore and tired. How are you after the heat?
ALEX DE MINAUR: Yeah, I mean, it was pretty brutal conditions. It's probably the hottest day we have had. Very humid, as well.

Long rallies and pretty taxing. But this is what I do the hard work for, to go out there and back it up, and I'm going to do everything in my power to come back in the final and I will leave it all out there.
