John Millman hasn’t been in the best of form since Wimbledon. He lost his first round match at the All England Club to Roberto Bautista Agut and ever since that, hasn’t been able to find his touch. He lost his first match at the Swedish Open to Arthur Rinderknech but followed it up with a quarterfinal outing at Washington Open.
He then lost in the second round of the Toronto Masters to Gael Monfils and then bowed out of the opening round of the US Open. But this week in Nur-Sultan, he has fought his way into the quarterfinals. He beat local Dmitry Popko in the opening round in three sets and then got the better of Jaume Munar in the Round of 16.
