‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

Jordan Thompson has ended the comeback of former world No.3 Milos Raonic at an ATP 250 grass-court tournament in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

Thompson recorded a 7-6(4) 6-1 second-round victory against the Wimbledon 2016 finalist, who was contesting his first tournament in almost two years.

This propels 29-year-old Thompson into his first ATP-level quarterfinal since February 2022.

He’ll next play Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, who eliminated top seed Daniil Medvedev in the second round. It is a rematch of the tournament’s 2019 final.

Alex de Minaur booked his spot in the quarterfinals too, after overcoming Serbia’s Laslo Djere in a three-set battle.

The fourth-seeded De Minaur triumphed 6-1 6-7(5) 6-3 in two hours and 11 minutes.

World No.18 De Minaur next plays sixth-seeded local hope Tallon Griekspoor, who eliminated Australia’s Alexei Popyrin in the second round.

With Rinky Hijikata also through to the quarterfinals, this marks the first time in the tournament’s 33-year history that three Australians have reached this stage in the men’s singles draw.

Kimberly Birrell, Australia’s last remaining hope in the women’s singles competition, bowed out in the second round.

World No.26 Ekaterina Alexandrova, the tournament’s defending champion, scored a hard-fought 6-4 7-6(3) victory against Birrell.
