Teenage tennis sensation Alex de Minaur has accused Australian Open organisers of punishing local players who perform well in home tournaments after failing to have his opening-round clash at the grand slam pushed back.
De Minaur was forced to play two matches in one day at the Sydney International on Saturday, after rain washed away his semi-final against Gilles Simon on Friday night.
Victory over Simon meant the 19-year-old had just a five-hour gap between that match and his final against Andreas Seppi, before flying to Melbourne on Sunday and starting his campaign on Monday afternoon. De Minaur said it left him disadvantaged ahead of his clash with Portuguese outsider Pedro Sousa on Monday, and into the rest of the tournament.
“What is more annoying is me having to play Monday at the Australian Open and not getting helped out as a fellow Aussie at your home slam,” de Minaur said.
MELBOURNE, Australia — As the players took their turn addressing the media over the past few days at Melbourne Park, one common theme came to light: They’re ready. They’re pumped. They’re feeling good. Bring on the Aussie Open!

So who will win? Who will surprise us? Our experts, Cliff Drysdale, Chrissie Evert, Brad Gilbert, Patrick McEnroe and Pam Shriver, handed in their picks.
