Amazing comeback from the Luxembourger!
Despite being broken just once Almugro lost this 3th round match, unbelievable....

Big choke from Almagro on this double mp in the 4th. :(

Nice.

They were both pretty solid in serving, too.

How many matches did he exactly win in 2008?Now he is in GS R16!

I excepted gilles to win if he won the 3rd set, almagro is more gutless than gasquet...

Not bad from Muller with these two comeback wins! :worship:

I didn't see it, but it would not be really hard to get how Almagro could have lost this match if Muller started serving as well from the third set on as he did in his encounter with Haas!

Two consecutive comebacks from being 0-2 down in sets, that's just amazing!
But does the Lux have enough in his game to take down Davy in the next round? Hmmm I think he does.

Shocking. When did Almagro have those 2 mps? In the 4th set TB on Muller's serve?

Shocking. When did Almagro have those 2 mps? In the 4th set TB on Muller's serve?

I think 5-4 40-15, he had two big chances on Muller's second serves and hit 1 direct UE and one short return.

OMG, I can't believe this.

Winning after 0-2 against Haas, Mugler now does the same with Mugro...and reaches 4th round of USopen. Tennis really is dead.

Heartbraking loss for Mugro :hug: :sad: :hug:

I want Nikolay to destroy Muller so baaaaad.

Drimal
08-31-2008, 07:55 PM
Another fantastic comeback Gilles!!! :woohoo: :banana:

He saved 2 MPs in 4th set while 4:5 15:40 on own serve down!

Gilles Muller is the first Luxembourger in history to reach 4th round of a Grand Slam! :rocker2:

Allez Gilles! Good luck versus Davydenko!

Always a good day when Almugro loses. It is especially sweet considering he was up 2 sets.

Great match from Muller, but Almagro play very bad and he don't return 2nd Mullers slice serves many time.....
I think Kolya wins 3-0

He has to be exhausted.

Still, hell yesh Gilles. Epic win, especially over such a douchebag. Don't stop now.
