Bio

The Portuguese keeps busy away from the court as he's able to speak six languages. The Barcelona resident has been continuously ranked in the top 100 since July 2013, having picked up his sole ATP title in Malaysia. At the 2014 US Open, Sousa became the first Portuguese player to be seeded for a Grand Slam, with his best showing at a major being the third round at the 2015 Australian Open.
