No one can pronounce his name correctly
Born in Sydney to a Spanish mother and Uruguayan father, De Minaur spent the first five years of his life in Australia before moving to Spain, where he stayed until 2012. He then spent four more years in his homeland before going back to Spain again. He speaks fluent English, Spanish and French, but unfortunately it seems no one can quite get his own name right.
“To be honest, I’ve heard it that many different ways, at this stage I’m considering changing my name to Demon,” he said, referring to his nickname. “It’s alright, it doesn’t really bother me. I’ve heard everything; “De min-hour”, “Deminooer”, just about everything except the proper way to say it. It’s “De Min-awe”. There you have it.
