Coming from the qualifications, Pouile controlled his first round match against Jurij Rodionov very well by winning in three sets on court 14 (6-2, 6-4, 6-3).
Lucas Pouille continues his redemption operation. The Northerner who made a place for himself in the main draw found the boiling short 14 at the end of the day, the one who succeeded in qualifying and also found… his opponent in the third round, Jurij Rodionov, “lucky loser”. And once again he had the last word against the Austrian, not very sharp, it is true. Unlike a Puglia, biting. The former world number 10 sang a Marseillaise with the public after his victory. Next opponent: Benoît Paire (149th and beneficiary of an invitation) or the Briton Cameron Norrie (13th).
Pouille will therefore try to climb to the third round, a stage he has not reached in a Major since Wimbledon 2019, the year he played the semi-final in Australia. It had been almost four years since he had won a match in a Grand Slam tournament, at the 2019 US Open. At 29, he is trying to regain his best level after dark years (injuries and depression ) which saw him plummet to the depths of the standings (675th).
