De Minaur was more or less "ambushed" says David Drysdale

Alex De Minaur hits out at Australian Open over playing schedule

The 34-year-old Seppi, playing in his first decider in more than three years, hasn't won a tournament since 2012. Hours earlier he had advanced to the final by winning his semi-final over Giles Simon 6-3, 6-2. "What's more annoying is me having to play Monday at the Australian Open and not getting helped out as a fellow Aussie at your home slam", said the 27th seed.

The young Australian has little time to celebrate, though.

After Barty shot out of the blocks in the first set and led the deciding set 3-0, world No.8 Kvitova fought back time and time again in the 2hr 19min classic while battling fatigue to claim her second Sydney crown.

"You know, I'm excited to get out there and try and play my best tennis for myself, my team and the Australian public, but there is certainly no extra pressure from them". I feel like I'm playing great tennis.

Thompson, 24, had broken his teammate's serve early in the second set, but it was not enough to hold back the 19-year-old De Minaur.


Boundless energy and the determination to chase down lost causes have been the cornerstones of De Minaur's early success and he was in fine form on Saturday, recovering from losing an early break to win the first set.

After beating Simon in the semi-final, De Minaur criticised Australian Open organisers after failing to get his opening match at the year's first Grand Slam pushed back. He'll face Pedro Sousa Monday in Melbourne with a chance at Rafael Nadal in the third round on Friday.

She more than doubled her prize money courtesy of the win over the wildcard Ho, earning $85,000, and it is just reward after she took a punt on a United States college scholarship to Vanderbilt University in Nashville after sustaining a broken ankle early in her career. I felt like I was moving well.

"I wasn't doing too well in the pro circuit and ended up going to Vandy and definitely the coaches there took me under their wing and developed me for a good four, five years", Sharma said. If both progress as they hope, the would meet in quarter final.
