AO 1R: Muller def. Lopez 6-3 7-6(5) 4-6 4-6 16-14

Not surprsinig scoreline for two big left-handed servers. The official website hasn't shown aces from this match and shows fake match-time but I guess both served more than 30 aces. Muller had first MP at 12:11 in the following game was 0-30 down but never faced a BP in the final set. He looks like a mental giant in 5-setters after this match and two at the US Open (Haas, Alamgro).

Why does Muller only play well in grand slams and disappear for the rest of the time?

What a boring ending, seeing Muller's reaction you could think it was a routine win.
