Norrie held his own but at 5-3 down, a converted volley at the net was wiped out after the umpire adjudged that the world number 85 had touched the net with his foot, leaving Pouille to take his first match point to register a 6-2 6-4 5-7 7-6 win.

Pouille was just able to do a lot of things better and more efficiently, and there is no doubt that experience began to tell here.

"So I think if I would have played again, I would probably play a little more aggressive in the bigger moments". But it was all about learning'.
