London, Great Britain, 9 July 2023 | Leigh Rogers

Alex de Minaur is enjoying a headline-making run in the Wimbledon 2023 mixed doubles competition.

The 24-year-old Australian and his British girlfriend Katie Boulter are proving fan favourites at the All England Club, where they’ve progressed to the second round.

A quarterfinal spot is the reward on offer today when they take on Belgium’s Joran Vliegen and China’s Xu Yifan, who eliminated the two-time defending champions Neal Skupski and Desirae Krawczyk in the opening round.

De Minaur is among 13 Australians in action on a jam-packed day seven schedule.

Chris O’Connell, Max Purcell and Jordan Thompson all feature in gentlemen’s doubles matches, while Storm Hunter and Daria Saville will look to complete their respective second-round ladies’ doubles clashes.

World No.7 Hunter and her Belgian partner Elise Mertens held a commanding 6-2 2-0 lead against Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu and Ukrainian Anhelina Kalinina when play was suspended yesterday.

Matt Ebden and Ellen Perez are also in a winning position in their postponed first-round mixed doubles match. They resume leading 6-3 4-2, and needing just two more games to secure victory, against Monaco’s Hugo Nys and German Laura Siegemund.

Five rising stars of Australian tennis are also in action, as the junior singles competition continues.

Wimbledon is broadcast in Australia on the Nine Network and Stan Sport, with coverage starting from 7.30pm AEST.
