Popyrin qualifies in Estoril, where De Minaur returns
Four Australians will play the ATP Estoril Open, with three - Alex De Minaur, John Millman and Bernard Tomic - clustered in the top quarter.
Alexei Popyrin won two rounds of qualifying to join fellow Australians Alex de Minaur, John Millman and Bernard Tomic in the main draw of the ATP tournament in Estoril.
Popyin beat Italian Simone Bolelli in three sets to qualify for the main draw, where he will line up against defending champion Joao Sousa of Portugal.
Millman and Tomic face off in an all-Aussie clash in the first round, with the winner potentially to face De Minaur in the last 16.
Seeded sixth, De Minaur is playing his first event since Indian Wells and takes on Portuguese qualifier Joao Domingues.
