This week tournaments such as those in Atlanta and Hamburg are taking place, and the Australian tennis players Alex De Minaur defends the title conquered last year in US. The tennis Tour is experiencing a moment of transition, after Wimbledon there are no major tournaments for a few weeks or at least until the beginning of August when we will see the ATP Masters 1000 in Toronto and Cincinnati.
The Australian tennis player spoke at a press conference, dealt with many topics and released the following statements to the ATP website: "It was a season of ups and downs, I had very good results and others that were really less good, moments that I would like to cancel.
But now I'm in good shape, I'm starting to face the second part of the season and I hope to get good results and continue on this path to conquer my Best Ranking." De Minaur won the title in Acapulco this year, has more than decent results and has a season record of 22 wins and 14 losses.
In Atlanta, he starts as the second seed and will aim to repeat last year's results.
Alex De Minaur can't wait for the Big 3 to all retire
Among many things, De Minaur talked about what will happen after the farewell of all three of the Big Three Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
He explained: "Without the Big Three I expect a very open phase of tennis, personally I find it more exciting. I'd like to be among those tennis players who manage to take the next step within the circuit." Obviously, the Australian tennis player also talked about his personal development and his future goals: "I want to continue working on myself, this is my floor.
I want to go all the way in the big tournaments, be continuously in the second week. Switching from grass to hard-courts? I don't think it's the most difficult change, during the year we live worse and after Wimbledon I allowed myself some free time.
I had to reset both physically and mentally." Then on the surface: "Playing on hard courts is very natural for me, I just have to resume my usual movements and then I can continue to achieve my goals."
