Indian Wells, USA, 14 March 2022 | Leigh Rogers

Alex de Minaur has won an all-Australian battle to continue his Indian Wells campaign.

The No.29 seed recorded a 7-6(4) 6-3 victory against compatriot and good friend John Millman in second-round action in the Californian desert today.

The one-hour and 40-minute triumph extends De Minaur’s unbeaten head-to-head record against the 32-year-old Millman to four straight-sets wins.

Today’s effort propels the 23-year-old De Minaur into the third round, where he’ll face either third seed Alexander Zverev of Germany or American Tommy Paul.

In men’s doubles action, American pair John Isner and Jack Sock snapped the seven-match winning streak of Australian Open champions Thanasi Kokkinakis and Nick Kyrgios.

Isner and Sock, the Indian Wells 2018 champions, did not drop serve as they recorded a 6-3 7-6(3) victory against the Special K’s.
