British WTA player Katie Boulter has found herself embracing the recent spotlight that shines on her Australian boyfriend, Alex De Minaur. She expresses her delight in the attention he receives, referring to the experience as an enjoyable “circus.”

Upon witnessing the 24-year-old De Minaur secure his ascent to the ATP Top 10, Boulter took to social media to convey her feelings with a heartfelt message:

“No I’m not emotional,” she wrote, complementing her ironic words with tearful and sobbing emojis. “No person deserves it more than this man. Only just the beginning.”

De Minaur now carries the dreams of a nation on his shoulders at the Australian Open and the glow of the spotlight intensifies on his relationship with Boulter. These two lovebirds, whose romance started in 2020, turned heads when they teamed up for mixed doubles at Wimbledon last summer, and now, they’re stealing the show as the dynamic duo of the tennis world.

In a recent interview, Boulter openly shared her pride in her boyfriend’s achievements. Typically a private individual who prefers to keep personal matters guarded, the Brit departed from her usual discretion and provided insight into the whirlwind experience:

I think it’s definitely been fun to be a part of because it’s been a little bit of a circus, but a good circus. I think it’s awesome that he’s getting the attention that he really does deserve and he’s put the work in for it.

A year and a half ago, Boulter also spoke very highly of her boyfriend:

He is the epitome of a fighter and someone that goes out and gives their all every single day. That’s what I aspire to be like.

With Nick Kyrgios sidelined, De Minaur is shouldering the hopes of Australia almost single-handedly. But fear not, because the man himself sees only positives. “I’m living my dream,” De Minaur exclaimed. “I can wake up in the morning and know that I’ve achieved a massive milestone, which was very tough to get to.”

Boulter, ranked 57th, is set for an Australian Open showdown with China’s Yuan Yue, riding high on confidence after a stellar start to 2024. Reflecting on her triumph over world number five Jessica Pegula at the recent United Cup, she shared, “It was huge. She’s one of the top players in the world and it gives you belief that that can be you and I strongly believe that if I keep working the way that I do that I can do that.” (source: Independent)
