Alex de Minaur overcame a set deficit to win the Mexican Open final by outlasting American Tommy Paul 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. This victory was de Minaur’s first ATP 500 championship.

In the two hours and 27 minutes-long championship match on Saturday, the eighth-seeded Aussie performed at his best when under pressure, saving six of the eight break points he encountered. He won his eighth and largest title of his career thanks to his performance against Paul.

After defeating world No. 10 Holger Rune in Friday’s semifinals, De Minaur faced two three-set matches in as many days.

“It feels great, it feels amazing. I know the hard work that’s put in to be here and it’s good to see the results. It’s not always that you win the tournament and you get to finish a week unbeaten, so I’ll definitely cherish this going into Indian Wells and Miami,” De Minaur was quoted as saying by ATP Tour.

De Minaur’s victory made him one of only two Australian players to capture an ATP 500-level singles championship in the previous 15 years, joining Nick Kyrgios, an Acapulco four-time champion.

The Acapulco performance also helped De Minaur climb back up into the top 20 worldwide (at a projected world No.18). Paul, on the other hand, is slated to return to the Top-20 just over a month after his run to the Australian Open quarterfinals.
