Alex De Minaur is leaving behind the sting of his Queen’s club semi-final loss with the Australian No. 1 shifting all of his focus to the start of Wimbledon in a week.

The No. 22 lost to Matteo Berrettini in a straight sets semi-final in West London and will now step into the strict Wimbledon player bubble to prepare for the Grand Slam start a week from Monday.

De Minaur said he hopes to “keep getting this level out of me, especially the last couple of matches I have played,” during a grass run which included defeats of Stuttgart champion Marin Cilic and fellow Aussie John Millman.

“With a little bit of luck in the draw and me playing some good tennis, I can do well at Wimby.

“That’s  the goal, that’s the plan. it’s what I’m striving for.”

The Spain-based player also knows he will have to tighten his game.

“I’ve still got to play well off the ground. I can’t make mistakes, especially on my serve.”

He also spelled out his formula for grass success: “I’ve just got to keep trying to tidy up my service games and then try to do everything I can on returns.”
