:sad: Was rooting for Muller to get to his first final in 3 years. Last final was in Atlanta to an American. Would have been poetic if he got the final and won.

Baggy in a final again finally. 4 years since last one.

Re: Atlanta SF: Baggy def. Muller 6-7(4), 6-3, 7-6(4)

Pretty good match :yeah:

But that choke from Muller in third set (*55/ *40-15, *A-40) :facepalm:

Muller serve was very inconsistent today. Somehow he found a way to break Baghdatis back twice in the 3rd set and the match ended up in the TB, but Marcos catched a mini-break in the 1st point and was enough.

Well, I wanted Gilles to win his 1st title here, but now I hope Baghdatis beats Isner. :cool:

Muller had some real chances in all sets. Each BP was a wild miss. Stupid shot selection.

Muller :sad:

Good win for Baggy though hopefully he can beat the servebot tomorrow.
Where's M-Bag :confused: Congrats to him and other Baggy fans. Was hoping for Muller too get his 1st title here :sad:

Gilles, nooo!

At least he's in the doubles final though. And it's never bad to see Baghdatis have a whole week of tennis.

Thanks! :yeah: Sadly missed out watching this live due to time zones - so ended up having a restless night while checking the score whenever I occasionally woke up. Won't have that problem for the final though fortunately!

Obviously ecstatic about this result by the way - from what I've read on here and elsewhere it sounds like both players weren't at their best, but Marcos managed to eke out a win. Feel sorry for Müller, but with his recent form he'll get to a final eventually I reckon - I hope he wins the doubles today too.

Great news for Marcos :) I like Muller too, but Marcos needs this more. Hope he takes out Jizzner in the final

Close but no cigar for Gilles again :(

Don't mind seeing Baggy reach another final at this point in his career though. Hope he has enough left to outlast Isner.

Muller served great in 1st set, but in 2nd and 3rd BAggy was just standing far behind baseline and getting balls back - 1 thing that Muller really lacks on his serve is power-velocity, i mean Baggy was just far behind baseline and on the Deuce court when serving all those 119-121 1st serves were getting back and even on AD court where Muller can use his lefty serve - well it was way to predictable, Baggy handled both Muller and Groth´s serves after he read them after match went on
