Estoril, R2: Gilles Muller def. Albert Montanes 4:6, 6:3, 7:6(7)

Hopefully the scoreline is right...I felt like Muller deserved to win this, despite the fact he saved 3 MPs. It looked liked he had the match under control till *5-4 in third, when he was broken.

Muller should've won much easier but I'll take it. Was by far the better player in the last two sets when not under pressure, but even had to rely on a DF from Montañes to save MP in the tiebreak. Muller served for the match at 5-4 in the third but was broken to 30.

Gilles was lucky in the end. He took a lot of risks in the tie break and was rewarded.

Muller's draw here would have been kind in a Challenger. And he still dropped two sets en route to the QF. Montañes normally would have owned him, but he is struggling to beat anyone these days.

What you mean by "normally"? It's just that Montanes is getting on a bit now and his results are a reflection of that. But yeah Muller in a QF of an ATP event on clay is a nice surprise.

I mean that a Montañes in decent form in the last few years would have won this. Muller is the much more talented player, but he sucks on clay.
