His name, commonly pronounced /d mɪˈnɔːr/ by Australians and other native English-speakers, inspired both his nicknames, 'the demon' and Minotaur, as well as his use of the Minotaur logo when signing the camera lens after winning matches.

De Minaur has dual Australian and Spanish citizenship.[10] He spent the first five years of his life in the south Sydney suburb of Carss Park[11] before relocating to Alicante, Spain.[12] He completed most of his early education in Spain before returning to Australia at age 13. As of 2015, de Minaur was living in Spain.[5][8] De Minaur has stated that he has always felt a strong bond with Australia even though he has lived most of his life in Spain. In 2017, he told the Sydney Morning Herald "I used to represent Spain but I always felt I was Australian. As soon as we moved back here again that was the first thing I wanted to do — play for Australia."[13]

De Minaur is fluent in English and Spanish and also speaks some French.[14]

De Minaur began playing tennis at age three at the Sydney Private Tennis Academy at the Parkside Tennis Courts in Kogarah Bay.

Playing style edit

 
De Minaur competing in the Boys' Singles at the 2015 US Open

De Minaur is famous for his speed and agility on court, which have earned him the jocular title "Speed Demon" on the tour.[150]

He is known for his ability to retrieve seemingly impossible balls and hit winners from defensive positions or force opponents into making mistakes. His footwork and court coverage are considered some of the best on tour, though some have questioned the physical toll it could take on his body in the long-term. Despite this, his fighting spirit, "never say die" attitude and intensity on the court have earned him a huge fan base for a young player.[151]

His baseline game suits that of a counterpuncher, often retrieving balls and slowly constructing points. However, he is also known to inject sudden pace into rallies to surprise opponents, and often opts for a one-two combination on his serve, using the serve and a powerful groundstroke to end points quickly. His forehand is significantly better than his backhand on the offensive, and he often uses it to construct points or hit winners when attacking.[152]

De Minaur's serve is considered his main weakness in his game, with both his first and second serve being considerably weaker than his counterparts in terms of power and a relatively high double fault count, in which it's considered the main attacking point for opponents. His volleys were initially a weakness too, but have improved, moving towards a more transitional offensive game.[153]

Critics point out that despite his defensive capabilities, de Minaur does not possess any real weapons to use against top opponents. Some have argued his defensive game is unsustainable physically in the long-term and is not sufficient to challenge better players, as he tends to play himself out of aggressive positions.[154]

National representation edit

ATP Cup edit

De Minaur made his ATP Cup debut for Australia in January 2020. He scored a victory against then world No.7 Alexander Zverev; which helped Australia claim a 3–0 victory over Germany.[155]

He fell just short of a spectacular upset, losing in a fifth-set tiebreaker after at one point leading 3–0, (40–Ad.) in the decider.[156]

De Minaur made his United Cup debut for Australia in December 2022. He scored a victory against the world No. 2 Rafael Nadal, his biggest career win thus far.

In 2024, de Minaur and team Australia were much more successful, advancing to the semifinals, helped by de Minaur winning against 3 top 10 players, including world no. 1 Novak Djokovic.
