    Why do they call de Minaur "demon"?

    I think every Australian I've ever met, particularly the guys, have had a nickname and that's de Minaur's. I think it comes from 'Speed Demon' and a bit from his last name.

    Sinner is crushing the ball, and de Minaur is having difficulty keeping up.

    Does anyone know who the trophy presenter was? He interviewed both players and is Italian. I think he's a former player but I didn't recognize him or hear his name said. Thanks.

    While that is a cute play on his name, fact remains I could bench press this lightweight. He needs a new nickname.

    I don't think it's meant to be like calling him Hulk or Beast. Speed Demon is a fairly common term, so I think it's more about how fast he is.

    Oh I got it, but they don't say the whole thing, they shorten it often and that's just laughable. He can't be more than 150 dripping wet.

    152 according to the ATP, not sure if he was wet or not when he was weighed.

    He was. They also did a photo shoot when they weighed him.

    And tenacious. I asked him about it at the Open for my story on player nicknames. He said it was because of his playing style and didn't mention that it's related to his name. Another reporter whispered, "It's from DEMON-aur." Duh. Of course! Probably both, but surely originated from his name.
