Katie Boulter, a British tennis player, recently said that she feels like most of Australia has a boyfriend, Alex de Minaur. The 10th-ranked De Minaur is seen as a dark horse by his home fans to end Novak Djokovic's run as the champion of the Australian Open
While Boulter, ranked 56th in the world, isn't receiving much attention, her boyfriend is considered a potential competition winner.
In an interview with sports reporter James Gray, Boulter said, "I feel like I'm sharing him with everyone, which isn't a bad thing, but it's a little too much." Gray also mentioned that De Minaur has dealt with attention for a long time and knows how to handle it.
In the first event of the season, the United Cup, Australia and Great Britain faced each other, putting Boulter and De Minaur's friendship to the test. This put Boulter and De Minaur's friendship to the test.
But Boulter's win over Ajla Tomljanovic and De Minaur's loss to Cam Norrie meant they didn't have to play a final mixed doubles match, which would have been strange.
Despite receiving a lot of attention, Boulter remains focused on her own game and is determined to climb up in the rankings.
She just beat world No. 5 Jessica Pegula in a ranking match, which was the biggest win of her career.
