João Domingues makes history by moving to quarter-finals

The 25-year-old portuguese got his fourth win of the week and reached the best result of his career.

Another day of Millennium Estoril Open, and another historic achievement for João Domingues: the portuguese number three was leading 6-3 and 2-1 against John Millman, when the australian withdrew due to an injurie. This will be Domingues's first appearance ever at ATP quarter-finals.

After the surprising victory against world number 27 Alex de Minaur, Domingues had to face another aussie player, proving once again his quality. 

With the renowned brazilian coach Lari Passos by his side at Estádio Millennium stands, the third best portuguese player of the moment presented himself at a great level since the beginning of the match, breaking Millman's serve right in the opening game. The australian would recover from the initial disadvantage, but Domingues got himself another break taking control of the set. Millman drew on the stop between sets to ask for medical assistance. He went back to court, but couldn't carry on after three games played.

Domingues's next opponent will come out of the encounter between world number ten Stefanos Tsitsipas and Guido Andreozzi, later this evening.
