Instead of partying in Mexico, de Minaur made it an early night to catch a morning flight to San Diego to see Boulter play in the biggest final of her career, the WTA500 at the San Diego Open against Marta Kostyuk making him a great champion and an equally great boyfriend.

Boulter lost a competitive first set to Kostyuk and then found her game to win the match in three sets. After her win, she went to her box and hugged her team, family, and de Minaur. She also thanked everyone in her box especially de Minaur for making the trip to be there for her.
