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.

what a challenge abuse :lol:
but seriously I enjoyed this match! as always gilles had to save so many BP, he just likes to make his fans stress out :p 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 :D

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

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.

Not yet. Btw it's $240,000 not $250,000. That will change tomorrow I'm sure though.

Pffff, terrible match from Del Potro. So many easy errors and so many chances wasted. Could have been so much easier, but a win is win. Hopefully he didn't waste too much energy, considering last week as well, because he needs all the energy against Cilic.

Great matchup, think Potro is the slight favorite.

So many girls think he's so hot and every guy I know thinks he's ugly. It must be the chest hair.

Del Pony had 62 winners to 25 ue's. Muller had 72 to 61, I think.

A lot of exaggerating in here. There was some good tennis played at times.

The ket moment of the match came with del potro serving at 4-4 30-40 in the 2nd set. Muller had a high bh volley to clinch the break but he made a complete balls of it. It wasn't a simple shot but you'd expect him to make it and that's the point he'll be playing over in his head tonight.

as soon as Muller messed up that volley to break for 5-4 in 2nd set i knew 2 hours later Del P would have the 4 set win

crap and obvious tournament this has been so far

Exactly. It was his first BP in the match, should have been extremely concentrated then and at least hit the ball into the court to allow Del Potro playing a running forehand. Awful error which maybe cost him losing the whole match.

Few.

If those stats are for real, then I must say they don't reflect the quality (or the lack of it) of the match.

Lots of lousy decision making and way too many of the crucial points ended up in UE.

tough win for del potro, he was really not returning well but stayed tough and dug out the 2nd set. got it together better after that. nice to see him keeping up his improvement from last year.

too bad for Muller, I wanted him to go deeper like what he did in the US open, but Del Pony (NOT hot btw) was too consistent for him.

It used to be Del Pony's ponytail. Now we don't know.

Muller is one hell of a player, too bad he can't be consistent enough to be a regular face in the main tour events. Instead we have to live with guys like Schuettler and Serra. :zzz:

I was impressed by Muller :yeah:
Good lefty serve and he was serving smart. Played some great shots and mixed it up.

BUT still glad Ponyman pulled it out :yeah:
