The pair stands out among the UTS field, filled with gigantic players, as it became the norm. But Moutet and Goffin aren’t made in that mold.
The Tornado is a true UTS revelation, whose sparky personality, behind the back underarm serves and jaw-dropping tweeners contrast nicely with the methodical, calm and deadly eye of Belgian star Goffin.
