CH Dallas R1: Muller def. Starace 6-4 7-6(13)

No, the tiebreak score is not a misprint. Poto had *2-0 *3-1 and *7-6 in the tiebreaker, where Muller hit a mishit return that landed in and caused an error from the Italian. Muller had *6-4, where he missed a relatively easy backhand volley off a chipped return from Starace.

Brutal returning overall from both players. Muller lost 13 points on serve in the match, 4 on his first serve. Starace tried hard but I've never really noticed how poor his game is on HC until watching him today.

It was 6-4, because Potito went to 7-6, Muller got to 7 all then lost a point on a missed forehand for Starace to go up *8-7.

I wanted Poto to win the breaker/match so I'm disappointed

Potito
A lot of tough losses for me recently. Well, this is kind of expected given Potito's HC ability but still. He could of turned this around and grind it out with some luck.

Now go to Europe and play some good stuff on clay. Come to Mateja

Muller is experienced in long tie-breaks.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
