They have played twice before. Their last meeting was in February 2016. Young won that one in Acapulco in straight sets on a hard court. Muller won in 2015 on a hard court in Atlanta.
I expected Steve Johnson to beat Young in the last round but he looked pretty weary and didn’t put up much of a fight. Johnson has had an excellent grass season and just ran out of energy.
We saw a lot more breaks of serve in Muller’s match with Mannarino than expected. Six in total. Muller lost serve twice in the opening set but then won sets 2 and 3 with his own double breaks.
I favour Muller to take this. He has also played a lot of tennis recently but I don’t see him folding like Johnson did. Wait for 1.75
