Lucas Pouille has reached the Australian Open semi-finals for the first time with a 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-4 win over 16th-seeded Milos Raonic, a major reversal of form at Melbourne Park after losing in the first round here in the previous five years.Pouille entered the quarter-final 0-3 against Raonic in career meetings – including a first-rounder here in 2016 – but targeted the 2016 Wimbledon finalist’s second serve and was only broken once himself in the match.The No. 28-seeded Pouille had break points in the seventh and ninth games of the third set but Raonic saved and, after an outburst against the chair umpire in the 12th game, dominated the tiebreaker.The moment of his tennis lifetimeTake a bow, @la_pouille! #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/mreC42vqNG#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 23, 2019The fourth set was on serve until Pouille, who is coached by former Australian Open women’s champion Amelie Mauresmo, broke in the last game.Well fought @milosraonic.See you soon #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/bQL1phNFMs#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 23, 2019It’s a rare instance of a woman coaching a man in professional tennis.

It doesn’t matter,” Pouille said when he was asked about Mauresmo during an on-court interview.”She knows everything about tennis. It’s not about being a woman or a man.”- @la_pouille on new coach @AmeMauresmo #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/AhbhZuVIH2advertisement#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 23, 2019″You just have to know what you’re doing,” Pouille said. “And she does.”The French connection @la_pouille has been playing out of his mind with new coach @AmeMauresmo.#AusOpen pic.twitter.com/iln27GDI8B#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 23, 2019Mauresmo, who retired as a player in 2009, was set to be France’s Davis Cup captain until she stepped away from that job in December to join Pouille.The great John McEnroe wearing his hat backwards in honour of @la_pouille #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/I0xRwaaMWO#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 23, 2019
