Acapulco, Mexico

Alex de Minaur has charged into the quarterfinals at an ATP 500 tournament at Acapulco.

The eighth-seeded Australian proved too strong for qualifier Jacopo Berrettini, the younger brother of former Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini, in second-round action today.

De Minaur posted a comphrensive 6-1 6-0 win against the 24-year-old Italian to secure his place in the quarterfinals at the hard-court event. He completed the victory in 61 minutes.

This is world No.22 De Minaur’s third consecutive ATP quarterfinal appearance across the past three weeks. He has only achieved this feat once before in his career, on grass in June 2021.

The in-form Aussie is now slated to meet Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel for a place in the semifinals.

World No.125 Daniel defeated second seed Casper Ruud in an almost three-hour quarterfinal battle.
