"My sixth title. It's good" - de Minaur after winning 2022 Atlanta Open

Alex de Minaur returned to the winners circle with a strong performance in the Atlanta Open final beating Jenson Brooksby 6-3 6-3.

The Australian won in Atlanta before in 2019 and now he's added a 2nd trophy after a week of heavy battling. His final was actually one of the easier matches all week as he had to overcome a couple of 3-set matches. It was all worth it as he noted during his speech after the match:

“I’d like to thank the crowd. You guys were amazing. I’m not a local, but you guys sure made me feel like one, so really appreciate the support.”

He continued:

“It was great to get another title under my name. It’s my sixth title. It feels good. Not a lot of people have been able to do that, so I feel great. I feel great about my game. I’ve put a lot of work in, so it’s great to see the hard work being rewarded.”

On the match itself, Alex said:

“I knew coming in it [would be] a very tactical, chess-like match that we were going to both play. I feel like we are both tricky players in that sense and we adapt very well, so [there were] a lot of tactics going both ways and I’m happy I was able to execute my game plan and get the win today. But it was a very tough match. Plenty of times [it could have] gone either way and even though the scoreboard was 3 and 3, it felt very, very tight.”
