NOVAK DJOKOVIC BREEZES PAST GILLES MULLER
Clay may not be Djokovic's best surface, but that was for sure one good showing he came up with on tuesday night as he defeated Gilles Muller of Luzembourg by a score of 63 64. The match started off roughly for Djokovic who fell behind 0-3 before rounding up 6 straight games to win the first set in stellar fashion. The second set looked a little more like men's tennis as both guys didn't face any break point until they both reached 4-all. Gilles Muller then surrendered, giving away his service game to love. Novak then breezed through his service game and showed great emotion when he converted his second match point with a down the line backhand winner.
Novak Djokovic will now face Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals. Cilic defeated world number 4 Lleyton Hewitt in two sets on tuesday.
The match will be aired on the Tennis Channel around 16:00 PM (EST).
