Alex De Minaur’s breakthrough season has continued, winning his first professional singles title in Portugal last week.
The 18-year-old Sydney born talent won an ITF Futures event in Povoa de Varzim. He swept through the draw as a wildcard entry, dropping just one set.
De Minaur also teamed up with Spaniard Roberto Ortega-Olmedo to win the doubles title.
Currently ranked at a career-high No.220, De Minaur has made massive inroads since starting the season ranked No.354.
The Wimbledon 2016 boys’ singles finalist impressed during the Australian summer, qualifying for the Brisbane International, winning his first ATP main draw match at Apia International Sydney then scoring his maiden Grand Slam main draw win after saving a match point in the opening round of the Australian Open.
