India’s shinning tennis player Yuki Bhambri scripted the biggest win of his career so far as he thrashed world no.12 Lucas Pouille of France in the second round of Indian Wells Masters on Monday.
Bhambri, 25, defeated Pouille in straight sets 6-4 6-4 and took just an hour and 21 minutes to finish the match to cruise into the third round of the tournament.
The world no.110 will next take on Sam Querrey of America in the third round and he would definitely look to continue his rampage form there as well.
Last year in August, Bhambri also defeated World No 22 and Citi Open defending champion Gael Monfils for what was then the biggest win of his career. This, in numbers speak, surely trumps it. That fact wasn’t lost on Bhambri who punched the air in celebration and euphoria as Pouille’s forehand sailed wide. Post the handshake, Bhambri once again took in the loud ‘Yuki! Yuki!’ chants before going on to kiss the court.
