Katie Boulter and boyfriend Alex de Minaur head to Tuscany for a holiday on Wimbledon finals weekend after both players fell short in the first week

British number one Katie Boulter has headed off to Tuscany with boyfriend Alex de Minaur after both were knocked out of Wimbledon in the first week.

She also shared a snap of de Minaur looking thoughtfully at a sea view after his second round loss to Matteo Berrettini.

The couple would have hoped to spend this weekend playing in their respective finals, but after failing to do so, both now look set to be away for the championship deciders.

As well as entertaining singles ambitions at the All England Club, Boulter and de Minaur also took part in the Mixed Doubles.

Despite not advancing past the first week, Boulter can still reflect on a tournament that saw her match her best ever grand slam finish.

She saw off Viktoriya Tomova and Daria Saville (despite playing through two Just Stop Oil protests) in the first two rounds, and while her loss to Rybakina did come in a convincing 57 minutes, it did come against a player ranked number three in the world.

The 26-year-old Brit has been seen at Wimbledon since her exit, as she posed alongside F1’s Pierre Gasly in the Ralph Lauren suite on Monday.

As for de Minaur, the Australian will be disappointed after failing to match his 2022 Wimbledon performance that saw him reach the fourth round.

His first round win over Kimmer Coppejans stretched into the tournament’s fourth day after a string of rain delays, but Matteo Berrettini beat him comfortably in the second round.

The tournament has now reached its semi-final stage, with Jannik Sinner currently facing Novak Djokovic in the first of the men’s matches. Carlos Alcarez will face Daniil Medvedev in the other last four clash ahead of Sunday’s final.

Ons Jabeur will play her second Wimbledon final against Marketa Vondrousova on Saturday.
