Kuznetsov fires wayward serve straight into stands

World of Sport

Alex Kuznetsov was dumped out of the French Open in three sets by Lucas Pouille and really it is no surprise if this serve is anything to go by.

The Ukrainian-born American fired one serve straight into the crowed drawing gasp from the Roland Garros fans which is hardly surprising given Kuznetsov's first serves regularly top 200 kph.

Kuznetsov was broken five times as he crashed to a 6-1 7-6 (2) 6-2 defeat to world number 324 Pouille.

Pouille, a wild card, is rewarded for his win with a third round match against highly-rated young Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.
