"It’s different, that’s for sure,” De Minaur said. “It’s definitely fun, I’m glad it went well for me.
"It wasn’t easy getting used to the conditions and tactics but I’m glad I made a good start.
"I forgot to use the cards and I also forgot what card I had,” he said, after snatching the sudden death point."
De Minaur will next face Pablo Andujar of Spain, while Evans is set to take on Andujar in his next match.
