De Minaur soon enough has two set points at 40-15, he’s dominating Garin while not being asked to play anywhere near his best tennis. And, after a couple of let-cords, Garin nets, and it’s a 6-2 first set in just about 40 minutes.
Nice serve and volley from Garin as he responds well to De Minaur’s speed at deuce, only to misread on the next point to find himself back at deuce. He eventually concedes the double break to a whipped lob from the Australian who at 5-2 will serve for the first set.
