Delray Beach, USA

Thanasi Kokkinakis and Jordan Thompson will turn their attention to doubles after suffering first-round singles losses at an ATP 250 tournament in Delray Beach.

American qualifier Mitchell Krueger did not lose serve in a 6-2 6-4 victory against Thompson, while fifth-seeded American Sebastian Korda scored a confident 6-4 6-1 win against Kokkinakis.

These results leave John Millman, who is set to face American Marcos Giron in the second round, as the last remaining Aussie in the men’s singles draw.

Australian pair Luke Saville and John-Patrick Smith made a winning start in the doubles competition, recording a dominant 6-3 6-0 win against German combination Peter Gojowczyk and Oscar Otte.

Marseille, France

Alexei Popyrin’s campaign at an ATP 250 tournament in Marseille is over, with the 22-year-old Australian exiting in the opening round to Russian qualifier Roman Safiullin.

World No.163 Safiullin recorded a hard-fought 6-7 (5) 6-4 7-6 (3) victory against the seventh-seeded Australian.

Popyrin did earn a match point in the two-hour and 40-minute battle, doing so in the 12th game of the deciding set. But after failing to convert, lost nine consecutive points to lose the momentum and ultimately the match.

Popyrin and Aussie partner Matt Reid were also eliminated in the doubles competition, beaten by French duo Benjamin Bonzi and Albano Olivetti in first-round action.
