Katie Boulter feels a "very lucky girl" to have Alex De Minaur by her side as she bids for a deep run at Wimbledon.

The 25-year-old defeated Clara Burel in her opening round match to set up a tough tie against last year's finalist Karolina Pliskova.

De Minaur is playing later in the day on Court One, giving him potentially some time to go on Centre and watch Boulter play.

Pliskova reached the Wimbledon final last year, losing to Ashleigh Barty in three sets having blitzed through the earlier rounds.

The Aussie tennis ace and Boulter have been dating for over a year now and De Minaur was on court for his girlfriend's first-round win over Burel.

Boulter took up tennis when she was just five and was representing Great Britain just three years later.

Boulter catapulted herself into the public eye with a Wimbledon win over Veronica Cepede Royg in 2018
