Bhambri sends world No 12 Lucas Poulie packing

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Indian Wells (USA): Yuki Bhambri registered the biggest win of his career as he toppled world number 12 Lucas Pouille to breeze into the third round of the Indian Wells Masters, here.

In a stunning performance, the 110th ranked Yuki, who qualified for the main draw, dispatched the ninth seed Frenchman 6-4 6-4 in one hour and 19 minutes.

The win is the biggest for the 25-year-old Indian, who had shocked the tennis world by demolishing Citi Open defending champion and world number 22 Gael Monfils in August 2017.

Yuki had beaten world number 16 Fabio Fognini in 2014 at the Chennai Open but the Italian had retired from that match due to a fitness issue. "I served well and played aggressive which was the key," Bahmbri told PTI.

"I just kept going at him and taking my chances which thankfully paid off," he said further.

Asked how he has started doing extremely well against top players of late, considering that now he has two wins over top-25 players in last six months, Bhambri said,"I have had an opportunity to play them."
