Popyrin Wins First ATP Tour Title

Mover Of The Week: Alexei Popyrin

The twenty-one-year-old Popyrin claimed two victories over the weekend: his first ATP Tour singles title and a career high ranking of eighty-two.  It is so rewarding when your hard work pays off.  However, spare a thought for his opponent on the other side though; Alexander Bublik, still has not won a title in four tries. 

Popyrin Making Moves in 2021

Popyrin turned professional in 2017 and it’s a great feat to win his first title in four years.  He has accomplished something many players have failed to accomplish, win a singles title.  He got to his first final and won his first title all at the same time in Singapore.  Congratulations to the Australian, he has to be pumped. I am curious to see how high he will rise this season.
