Gilles Muller Wins The 2017 Ricoh Open Defeating Ivo Karlovic


Fourth seed Gilles Muller won the Ricoh Open in s-Hertogenbosch with a hard-fought 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) win over fellow veteran Ivo Karlovic.

Neither player was able to force a break of serve in the match but 34-year-old Muller had the edge over his 38-year-old opponent in both tie-breaks. He clinched victory by winning four successive points.

Muller said: "I think we should make a suggestion to the ATP that we just start with the tie-break next time! It's always tough to play Ivo and I'm glad I could beat him."

For Muller, the men’s champion over Ivo Karlovic in a pair of tiebreak sets, 2017 has been a year of firsts—at 34 years old. A pro since 2001, Muller finally broke through to win a singles title this year in Sydney, Australia, posted his career-best ranking this year, peaking at 26 in May. Along with Stuttgart champion Lucas Pouille, Muller has reached singles finals this year on hard, clay and grass courts.
