Alex de Minaur out of Australian Open with abdominal tear!

Alex de Minaur has announced he is out of the Australian Open with an abdominal injury which also forced the Australian out of Adelaide this week.

Alex who is now the Australian number one in men’s tennis and was a key part of their successful run in ATP Cup has said it is devastating to miss the first major of the year especially being at home but is the right decision.

He could have gone out there however the tear in his abdomen is 4cm, Grade 2 tear which needs time to heal properly.

There has been a lot of talk since the announcement on whether Alex should have played in some long matches including the doubles v TeamGB in ATP Cup but I imagine it would have been his decision despite playing for three hours before then.
