Countrymen Sebastian Korda and Michael Mmoh pulled off a nail-biting opening doubles victory against Fabio Fognini and Maximo Gonzalez on Friday in Miami. The duo posted a 6-3, 2-6 [10-7] score to advance at the Masters 1000 event.
Fans may have been on the edge of their seats, but the American team was just enjoying what Korda called the "funniest doubles match" he's ever played. Between the incredible shot-making and jumping after the same overheads, Mmoh believes the laughter helped the two relax.
"I think us having a good laugh during pressure points helped us get the W. We were having too good of a time to catch a L," Mmoh told Baseline.
