I forgot to post the rest of Brisbane, but the real deal was Sydney where Alex won his first title by defeating Seppi 7-5 7-6(5) :)

Getting back to this thread in March, I'll write a bit about Alex's performance before IW.

Having claimed his maiden ATP title in Sydney, De Minaur moved to Melbourne, where he defeated P. Souza in straight sets, had a roller-coaster with Laaksonen 64 62 67 46 63 and then was stopped by Nadal in straight sets.

Next he participated in Davis Cup qualies, where he faced M. Basic and won the match in straight sets.

Back to court in the end of February, Alex appeared in Acapulco. In round 1, he defeated Jarry in straight sets. After Lopez's withdrawal in round 2, Demon lost to A. Zverev in straight set.

Alex was seeded in IW, so he started from round two. And finished just right there. The causer is a qualifier M. Giron, who sent Alex to Miami by winning in 3 sets.

Alex doesn't appear to be entered in any tournaments until Barcelona. Anyone know what's up?
Thanks for wondering. I share it.
My research failed from the first question on Miami and now I'm helpless too.
But not finding info on his injury is kind of good news.
