Portugal has had a place on the ATP Tour calendar since 1990, and the Millennium Estoril Open has continued that tradition starting with its inaugural edition in 2015. Last year, Joao Sousa became the first Portuguese-born player to celebrate a tour-level title on home soil.
Sousa returns to defend his ATP 250 title in 2019, and will face competition from the likes of Stefanos Tsitsipas, recent Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters champion Fabio Fognini, Gael Monfils and Alex de Minaur.
