Q Rome R1: Muller def. Pospisil 6-1, 7-5 (played TWO events today)

Gilles Muller played two events today !

First he lost in a Rome challenger final to Janowicz 6-7, 3-6 (match finished around 4 p.m.) ...

... and then he found his way to defeat Vasek Pospisil in qualification 1st round at Rome Masters 1000 6-1, 7-5 (match started around 6:30 p.m.)



(and people - me too - said he is a claycourt mug)

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

haha good one
Pospisil though is weak on clay, and overall doing a poor year

it really takes something special out of the other guy to be breadsticked by gilles on any surface and especially so on clay

vasek double faulted 10 times and served only 47% first serve

he's really not ready for top 100 yet.

Good effort by muller to pick himself back up.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

I remember Tsonga back in 2007 (I think) playing 2 events in one day, Queens' qualies and some grass challenger SF/F.
It's obvious Muller is going to have a Tsonga like career now.

Woah! The guy would get my respect if he didn't already have it for kicking out RN out of Wimbledon 2005 and then getting to a USO QF in 2006 when he was considering retirement due to lack of earnings.

Muller slowly transforms himself into a clay specialist
