Muller sent some really wild shots at time, it's too bad that he is so erratic.

Good win by Del Potro.

Horrible match... a win is a win, I guess.

Del Potro was not great with break points today... 4-24.

It was a tough match up for Del Potro. Had Muller been a better player, he would have won. Saved my 250,000 vcash. I was worried for a sec. Should have bet it on Cilic, knew that he was going to win.

Much much harder than expected. Muller played really good and he is a fun player to watch.

Del Potro will need to play much better against Cilic.

Re: AO 3R: JM Del Potro beats G. Muller 6-7(5) 7-5 6-3 7-5

what a challenge abuse
but seriously I enjoyed this match! as always gilles had to save so many BP, he just likes to make his fans stress out but then somehow, there's always one BP he doesn't manage to save and it goes all down the hill.
but still, both of them showed us some great tennis today

Re: AO 3R: JM Del Potro beats G. Muller 6-7(5) 7-5 6-3 7-5

Finally Del Potro was forced to play a few tight sets in a match

Muller has very similar game to Rusedski, there is even similarity between haircut and body build of these two. Rusedski had a little better serve and forehand but Muller has better backhand. If Rusedski was No. 4, Muller would be a player around No. 20 but he should be playing constant tennis. It can't be that a player who is able to beat Nadal, Haas, Almagro, Davydenko, Lopez in Grand Slams, loses to weakling C.Rochus 2-6 4-6 indoor, serving 20 aces in the match :retard:

Awesome match, pity it didn't go 5. I'm a total Muller fan, hopefully he can crack the top 40 or higher this year.

I like Muller's game too. He was playing really well in the first set. He's really erratic though as a player. It's funny how he only ever does well at slams nowadays. Like a babyfed.
