Popyrin wins first ATP title

Australia’s Alexei Popyrin came back from a set down to beat Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik at the Singapore Open on Sunday and win his first ATP Tour title, reports AFP. Popyrin started off badly, losing the first set 4-6 but charged back and snatched the second 6-0. Bublik put up more of a fight at the start of the third, with both men holding their serve until it reached 2-2. But Popyrin then surged ahead, firing a total of 11 aces, to take the set 6-2 and clinch the title. “It’s an unbelievable feeling to know I have won my first ATP title,” he said.
