Key Stat

  • Popyrin had moved up 53 spots in the ATP rankings since the start of 2021.

Popyrin hasn’t quite captured the headlines the way countrymen Nick Kyrgios, Thanasi Kokkinakis, or even Alex de Minaur have, but the 21-year-old is back on an upswing following a 2020 slump that took him out of the Top 100.

Sydney-born and 6’5”, Popyrin captured his first ATP title in Singapore and maintained that momentum through the Miami Open.


He scored an upset over Reilly Opelka and pushed top seed Daniil Medvedev to three grueling sets—reducing his pre-season practice partner to cramps by match point.

“That just shows where my level's at,” he said despite the defeat. “A few more experiences like this, who knows how far I can go?”
