De Minaur out of Australian Open due to abdominal injury
World number 21 Alex de Minaur will miss the Australian Open due to an abdominal injury.
Local hope Alex de Minaur withdrew from the Australian Open due to an abdominal injury.
De Minaur helped Australia into the ATP Cup semi-finals earlier this month, including pushing Rafael Nadal in the last-four loss to Spain.
But the 20-year-old will now miss the year’s opening grand slam, where he reached the third round in 2019.
“Unfortunately Australian No.1 @alexdeminaur has withdrawn from #AusOpen 2020 with an abdominal injury,” the tournament wrote on Twitter.

World number 21 De Minaur enjoyed a stellar 2019 with a 41-20 win-loss record and three titles.
