John Millman turned pro in 2006 after taking up the sport at age four because his four sisters, Shona, Kara, Tessa and Bronte, all played.
The six-foot right-hander claimed his maiden ITF Futures Pro Circuit singles title in Traralgon in 2008. He then secured his first Challenger title in Sacramento, USA in 2010, the same year he broke into the world’s top 200.
He made his Olympic debut in Rio where he won his first round match 2-0 against Ricardas Berankis. Millman came close to causing a major upset on centre court at the Olympic Tennis Centre in Rio when he led fourth seed Kei Nishikori in both sets, only to eventually go down 7-6 6-4.
