After clinching his eighth ATP Tour title with a 6-4 6-4 victory over Casper Ruud in the final of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC, world No.9 Alex de Minaur finds himself with little time to celebrate. Despite the allure of a Saturday night party in Acapulco, the Australian is focused on a more meaningful endeavor: supporting his long-term girlfriend Katie Boulter as she competes in her first WTA 500-level final at the San Diego Open.

The 25-year-old De Minaur, who won the Acapulco tournament for the second consecutive year, expressed his priorities in his on-court interview, stating that there’s no time for title celebration, “You know what, I cannot. I’ve got a 6 a.m. flight to go to Tijuana and go and watch Katie play in the final, so I’m looking forward to that.” Known for his unwavering support for Boulter, the Australian tennis star is on his way to San Diego to cheer her on as she faces Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk in Sunday’s final, a first-time encounter between these two players.

Boulter, the British number one, earned her spot in the San Diego final by defeating American Emma Navarro 6-3 6-1, marking a significant milestone in her career. The 27-year-old has one WTA title in her biography, as she won the WTA 250 Nottingham Open last year.

We assume that Boulter and De Minaur have been together for four years. In March 2021, Boulter posted a selfie of them on Instagram with the caption “Happy one year,” indicating that they began their relationship in March 2020. De Minaur’s decision to prioritize his girlfriend’s match over celebrating his own victory highlights the strong bond between the couple and his commitment to supporting her career.
