Congrats Muller on a good performance today whereas Gasquet who played alright but was a bit too passive on certain points also missed 5 break points, 3 of them when Muller served for the match!

This was a good chance for Richard to make a deep run in his home tournament. :sad: :mad:

A truly amazing display by Muller!
We all know what he's capable of (fantastic serve-vollying for instance), but usually he only shows off his talents incidentally in slams - like psychologicalarf said in the livescores-thread "about once in three years" :spit:.

The scoreline might suggest that Gasquet was playing badly. Such wasn't the case at all, there just wasn't anything he could do against this Muller-on-fire.

:lol: to those saying Muller was huge and in God mode.
Richard was beyond awful.
Everybody in the top 100 could have shone against him.

Muller was superb.

Gasquet was too passive. Might work against normal Muller, who would spray errors from the baseline and hope for a tiebreak. Today he was sharp, really impressive forehand, and of course passivity against that is asking for trouble. Gasquet should have noticed this and changed tack, but didn't.

Right now, I'm not far to think he hit his prime in 2006/2007.
Each year, he is getting a little bit poorer.

Whoa did not totally expect this score and by judging the posts on here Gasquet didn't even play bad! Nice to see Muller making a deep run in a tournament.

Muller is in good form, he did pretty well at the USO as well, and it looks like this court very much suits his game. :)

Yep I suppose when you factor those things into the equation this results is perhaps not as shocking at face value. Nice to see Muller proving that he isn't the 'all-serve mug' that the haters on here call him :)
