    I watched it too and completely agree Pat. Did one of the commentators say that he beat Paire last year?

    Just checked and Alex won 6-3 3-6 7-6(1) in R32 last year.

    Yet to see De Minaur though seems promising,remains to be seen though if he will be a really big star in future.

    I expect he will come through tomorrow though the semis though I may have cursed him. Tomic was going to be huge and it could be easily argued that he never reached his potential. Guess time will tell.

    De Minaur seems to be a completely different character to Tomic. De M appears much more in the Murray mould of chase everything down and "never give up" which certainly can't be said of Tomic on at least some occasions.

    I agree. And tomic did show signs of the problems that he has now early on. I hope DM's future is as bright as it looks now

    Delpo won the match against ferru and 64 64. He is into the final and plays BA who came through a tight match 6-7 7-6 7-6 against hasse.

    In Sydney medvedev df fognini 2-6 6-4 6-1 he will play the winner of paire v deminaur which is still going. Paire took the first set 6-4 but lost the second 1-6 and DM in a break up in the third 2-0

    De Minaur does it again! Lost the first set but came back to win the next two 6-1, 6-1. The score belies how hard he had to work in the third. Two very long service games where he refused to give up...giving up does not exist in his mind....so like Andy... and the final point of the match proved that. It was amazing! Paire may have somewhat handed it to him in the final game but Alex produced the win when not quite as sparkling as he was yesterday.Thanked the crowd for getting him over the line. Interesting that two of the 'next gen' are in the final tomorrow. I hope Alex has enough left to make it an exciting match. Looking forward to it.
