Alex de Minaur delighted as Katie Boulter reaches back to back QF in Nottingham

Alex de Minaur cheered girlfriend Katie Boulter on as the Brit made it to the quarterfinals of the 2024 Rothesay Open. She comfortably saw off Rebecca Marino 6-4, 6-3 in an hour and 14 minutes.

The end of the French Open marks the beginning of the grass court season and while de Minaur is waiting to kick off his grass swing as the top seed at the Libema Open, Boulter is defending her title at the Rothesay Open as the third seed. The Brit started with a win against Harriet Dart (5)6-7, 6-4, 7-5 and followed it up with a win against qualifier Rebecca Marino.

Katie Bouler took to Instagram to celebrate her second consecutive semifinals in Nottingham.

"Another QF in Notts 🫶🏻," Boulter wrote on Instagram.

The couple has been in a relationship for the past four years. However, as a result of being professionals on tour, they don't get to spend much time together during the season but keep dropping encouraging messages on social media to support each other.

Alex de Minaur excitedly commented "vamos" (let's go/come on in Spanish) on Boulter's post, expressing his delight.

"Vamoooooooos," de Minaur commented.

Alex de Minaur is currently enjoying the best season of his career, reaching a career-high ranking of 9, defending the Acapulco Open, and reaching his first quarterfinal in a Major at the French Open.

He had a great grass swing last year, reaching the Final 8 at the Libema Open losing to Tallon Greikspoor, the finals in Queens where he lost to Carlos Alcaraz, and lost to Matteo Berrettini in the second round at Wimbledon.

On the other hand, Katie Boulter broke into the Top 30 for the first time this year after winning the San Diego Open and was instrumental in helping team Great Britain against France to qualify for the Billie Jean King Cup final.

She clinched the first WTA title of her career at the Rothesay Open where she defeated three compatriots in a row en route to the title. She played the Birmingham Classic next but suffered a first-round defeat to Zhu Lin. She made it to third-round of Wimbledon where she was ousted by Elena Rybakina.
