Tuesday morning’s hitter was a bit of a roller coaster for us, as Lucas Pouille hit Andreas Seppi off the court in the first set (6-2) before, ultimately, going down a break in the decisive third set.
But Pouille rallied back — showing great fight — and forced a third-set tiebreaker, which he went out and took with the help of this yuge forehand winner to set up match point (and an absolutely clinical “COME ON”).
