Alex De Minaur, the 18-year-old Australian tennis player that has fans around the nation drooling for more, will take on the 19th seed Tomas Berdych in the very first round of the 2018 Australian Open on Tuesday.

He is certainly the talk of the tournament from an Australian perspective, and the amount of attention that this New South Wales born youngster is capturing is truly amazing considering that this is his maiden grand-slam appearance.

Unlike our other national tennis, umm let’s call them hopefuls, Alex De Minaur is earning his reputation and time in the spotlight for all the right reasons.

Not only has the kid been playing amazingly good tennis and displaying attributes well beyond his years, he is also an incredibly smart player with an unbelievably humble attitude for someone of his age.

De Minaur is also earning huge respect from his opponents.

Almost every player that he has versed over the last few weeks has subsequently spoken of him with admiration and praised his ability, with each of them also recognising him as the future of tennis.

It’s certainly a package that fans haven’t seen in Australia since Leyton Hewitt arrived on the scene 20 years ago. In fact, De Minaur is the youngest player to make the final at the Sydney International since Leyton Hewitt in 2000.

De Mianaur actually possesses a thousand similarities to the Australian veteran, including his attitude, and especially  his playing style on the court. That’s why it’s no surprise that Leyton is playing a huge role as a mentor and coach in the 18-year-olds corner.

Having the great Leyton Hewitt in his corner should not be underestimated.

The 2 x grand-slam winner is on a very prestigious list of people who would be in a position to speak from experience and offer an 18-year-old player advice on winning a grand-slam at a very young age.

Hewitt who won the US Open at 20 years of age, joins players like Rafael Nadal, Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, Stefan Edberg, Mats Wilander, Bjorn Borg, and Boris Becker, who are the only players to have won a grand-slam at a younger age than Leyton did.

If Alex De Minaur was to pull off an upset victory in this Australian Open tournament, he would become the youngest player ever to win the Australian Open, and the youngest player since Boris Becker (1985 Wimbledon) to win a grand-slam.

Why he is a good bet.


Put all of your bias for Alex De Minaur to the side for one moment to analyse this match-up and this is still a brilliant betting play.

  • It’s the in-form versus the out-of-form.

While we have already spoken about Alex De Minaur being in the absolute form of his life, on the other side of the net, Tomas Berdych is currently playing some of the worst tennis we’ve seen from him in a long time.

Since making the 2017 Wimbledon final, he has only won 4 matches, and lost 5. A majority of those 5 losses were even against much lower-ranked opponents and the most interesting of those was the loss to our other Australian youngster Thanasi Kokkinakis.

  • It’s Mutton vs Lamb. Or nicely put, it’s the injury-free-youngster versus the injury-plagued-veteran.

Tomas Berdych’s poor form can be attributed to a back injury which he sustained at the China open in October. Since returning he has yet to find any convincing form that would be likely to put De Minaur out of this contest.

  • It’s the nothing-to-lose versus the everything-to-lose.

De Minaur has been playing an incredible do-or-die style tennis which has noticeably had an affect on all of his opponents to date. In each of his matches so far, he has succeeded in frustrating his more experienced veteran opponents, mostly with his ability to read the play and return the ball no matter what it takes.

On the other end of the court, Berdych will be feeling the same pressure that all of the veterans have felt over the past few weeks when facing Alex De Minaur. No professional, especially those ranked higher, will be pleased with losing to an inexperienced 18-year-old, no matter how talented the kid is. It creates pressure and adds more pressure to intense scenarios as we have seen recently when De Minaur has disturbed the most experienced of veterans in Verdasco and lopez.

  • One player will have the full support of the crowd, the other will be forced to beat to his own drum out there.

This isn’t like most grand-slam match-ups where the stadium is neutral for opponents, this is a home game for Alex and he certainly uses every bit of that crowd to get the most out of himself like we have seen in Sydney. He has already pleaded for support from the crowd through his pre-tournament press conference.

Alex De Minaur definitely has the ability to win this match, not only is he an extremely good defensive player, he also acquires excellent ground strokes and a tennis brain that is developed well beyond his year,

Taking everything into account, Alex de Minaur is over the odds and Tomas Berdych might be getting a little too much respect by the bookmakers. Punters should be happy to take that price for De Minaur and it win-or-lose, it can only be seen as the right betting strategy. Either way, we have no doubt that you will get your money’s worth from this kid on Tuesday.
