Points won by each set: [ 50-45, 29-20, 32-18 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
36 % Berdych – 32 of 87
31 % Pouille – 34 of 107

Pouille [30] arrived in Wimbledon not having won a grass-court match on the tour, so the advancement to the third round was already a satisfying result for him. Then he surprised Del Potro and Tomic in his another two, quite complicated matches. Perhaps those two tough wins cost him too much mentally. Despite serving six double faults, he was within three points from taking the opener against Berdych (improved from 1:5 to 4:5* in TB). The Czech player [9] grabbed the tie-break 7/4 and established himself as a superior player, overwhelming the nine years younger Frenchman with heavy serving & ground-strokes in the two following sets.
