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”).

 

In the end, it doesn’t matter how much you perspire, but whether you win or lose — and, Tuesday, we won. With another full slate of tennis Wednesday, we look to keep it rolling in the Italian capital.
