Amazing comeback from the Luxembourger!
Despite being broken just once Almugro lost this 3th round match, unbelievable....

Nice.

They were both pretty solid in serving, too.

I excepted gilles to win if he won the 3rd set, almagro is more gutless than gasquet...

Not bad from Muller with these two comeback wins!

I didn't see it, but it would not be really hard to get how Almagro could have lost this match if Muller started serving as well from the third set on as he did in his encounter with Haas!
