Stockholm, Sweden

Alex de Minaur has advanced to his sixth ATP quarterfinal of the season.

The fifth-seeded Australian is yet to drop a set at this week’s Stockholm Open, powering past world No.56 J.J. Wolf 6-4 6-2 in second-round action.

De Minaur proved clutch under pressure against the 23-year-old American, converting four of the five break points he earned throughout the 83-minute encounter.

This propels the 23-year-old De Minaur into a quarterfinal showdown with fourth-seeded Canadian Denis Shapovalov.

De Minaur has won all three of his previous tour-level meetings against world No.20 Shapovalov, including their most recent at the Canadian Masters in August.

Their rivalry stretches back to their junior days, with Shapovalov beating De Minaur in the Wimbledon 2016 boys’ singles final.
