Another Setback for de Minaur and Australia

Just a month after he had to miss the Tokyo 2020 Olympics due to a positive COVID-19 test, Alex de Minaur suffered another setback as he crashed out of the 2021 US Open. The world no.17 got knocked out in four sets against Taylor Fritz, who won 3-1, with 7-6, 6-2, 1-6, 6-4.

For Fritz, it was a shocking win but a well-deserved one, as the American finally overcame his demons and beat the Australian for the first time in five meetings. De Minaur has not lost to Fritz once before, nor has he dropped a single set in his previous four meetings, dating back to June 2018.

However, de Minaur had his chances and looked set to mount a comeback following a convincing 6-1 victory in the third set. But he was unable to keep his momentum going and eventually had to admit defeat to the current world no.42.

De Minaur’s exit from the 2021 US Open continues a disappointing start to the tournament for the Australian tennis players, with Ash Barty as one of the two remaining Aussies still in the race for the coveted trophy.

Another big exit for Australia happened on Tuesday when Nick Kyrgios lost against Roberto Bautista Augut with 0-3. Kyrgios looked set to win the game, but after losing the first two sets with 3-6 and 4-6, he completely capitulated and lost the third set 0-6, ending his quest for the 2021 US Open title with the fewest games of his career in Grand Slam.

Barty Still In The Race For Back-To-Back Slams

Current world no.1 is still in the race for the 2021 US Open title, having beaten Vera Zvonareva (2-0) with 6-1, 7-6. It was a close match, but the Aussie came through, proving to everyone why she is considered the best in her class.

Ash Barty entered the 2021 US Open off wins at Wimbledon and Cincinnati and is now battling her way through the field to her third Grand Slam title, having already won the French Open in 2019. Still, she hasn’t done too well at the US Open in her previous attempts.

Across five appearances, Barty never managed to make it past R4, having reached that stage in 2019 and 2020. Still, she is in the form of her life, as she has already made it to the quarter-finals of the Australian Open earlier this year.

The 25-year-old will face off against Denmark’s Clara Tauson on Thursday, September 2, for the first time in her career. Tauson will enter the match on a six-game winning streak, which includes a 2-1 victory against Emma Raducano in the Chicago finals and a clean 2-0 sweep of world no.92 Clara Burel in the first round of play at the 2021 US Open.
