De Minaur consolidates the early break but it’s not without a scare for the Aussie.
He was forced to avoid four different break points after falling 15-40 down early but got by with good serves.
“It’s an important game for Alex here. He has to make sure he keeps bringing it to Garin, he doesn’t want to rally from the baseline,” Groth said.
“He has to be really aggressive and push the problem on Garin. You don’t want to turn this match into almost a clay court match, do you? “, adds Dokic.
It’s a good game that you have to get out of, not only to consolidate the break, but also psychologically, to send a message to the other team. He hit big serves there.”
