In the initial round, De Minaur ousted Britain’s Andy Murray and instantly overpowered Rune, serving efficiently to grab the first set.
World number six, Rune, despite winning his inaugural matches on grass at this tournament, saved three break points in the eighth game of the second set. He managed to sway the London crowd in his favor.
However, De Minaur’s efficient service and strategic play led him to secure his spot in the final with an assertive display in the tie-break.
Though De Minaur has never advanced beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon, his stellar performance at the warm-up tournament, including his recent triumph over a player ranked 12 places higher, attests to his excellent form.
The composed Australian couldn’t contain his elation post-match, letting out a roar after congratulating Rune and the umpire, and appeared emotional during his on-court interview.
