Well, what a night/early morning that was.

Alex de Minaur started a little slowly in the first set, but came alive from the second set onwards to dominate the match, and straight afterwards he even charmed the French crowd by conducting his post-match interview in their language.

Midway through the match, he claimed 11 out of 12 games to give himself the momentum to carry him home.

His 4-6 6-2 6-1 6-3 win over world No.5 Daniil Medvedev makes him the first Australian man to reach the quarter-finals at Roland-Garros since Lleyton Hewitt, way back in 2004.

Next, De Minaur will play the winner of the match later today (wee hours of the morning) between Alex Zverev and Holger Rune. And if he manages to advance to the semi-finals he’ll be the first Aussie male to get that far at this tournament since Pat Rafter back in 1997.

He’s having one helluva ride at this tournament, and if his form tonight is any indicator, he’s going to be tough to beat from here on in.

Look out for Marc McGowan’s comprehensive wrap of tonight’s match coming to this website shortly, and stay tuned as we follow the Demon’s fortunes … hopefully all the way to the final at the weekend.

We’ll see you for the next match! Sleep well, tennis fans.
