Now that's a gruelling draw :lol:

No idea how fit Tsonga is. though. He withdrew from every grass warm-up.

Nightmare draw for Jo but if he is fit, hopefully he gets to R4 but given his poorish record vs Big servers that's a doubt!

More scared of potential Tsonga vs Karlovic. :scared: With his abysmal return of serve, Karlovic might break all ace records in this match alone.

Muller is serving almost as well as Karlovic right now.

Scared for Jo in this one. Still think Muller will be unable to maintain his peak serve level over BO5. Jo takes this in 4 I think.

Nightmare draw for Tsonga. Coming from injury and he'll play a big server lefty in fresh grass. Can't see him winning this, unless he's fully recovered.

Tsonga's draw is unbelievable :eek: This is probably the best 1st round match

I agree that this match could be pretty entertaining, but I don't think it's the best R1 match.

Djokovic/Kohli will probably provide a better quality match imo, this one could be a bit of a servefest, since both are big servers. This one looks more competitive on paper though.

I knew that Muller was going to get a seed in the first round...

He's done this many times before and won these big matches. Muller in 4.

Disgraceful that these two have to meet so early.

That was huge for me! The US Open in 2008. In the second and third round against Haas and then Almagro....Muller rallied from two sets down both matches to win. It was incredible. In the fourth round, he took out Davydenko in a 4th set tiebreaker. Then he got to play Federer on Ashe stadium and put up a very good fight!

Tsonga still recovering from injury and he gets Muller from the get go. He won't have any single match where he can sleepwalk through either. Then he gets Murray, the worst option he could get in R16. If he could pull such heroic then, finally, he gets a freebie in the quarters.

It was a great USO for Muller. I was just mad Haas after beating epically Gasquet in the 1st round blew away 2 sets lead. At that point I had every reason to dislike Muller but oddly enough that was the time I started paying attention to him as I like his game now very much. ;)
