After the easy start (straight set victory against Lorenzi), Roger Federer is preparing for his second round match, where his opponent will be Gilles Muller. Muller spent a big portion of the 2013 season going MIA, and mostly competed at the challenger levels in the last couple of years, with no relevant Grand Slam results.

The Swiss and the Luxembourger have already met three times, and although Federer won each of those matches without losing a single set, their only Grand Slam meeting was actually a rather close one. They’ve met during the 2008 US Open quarterfinals, where Federer needed two tie-breaks to overcome Muller, who was serve and volleying the Swiss into oblivion in the first and third sets.

 

Considering that we are on grass this time, it would be foolish to write Muller completely off, even though his form is probably not nearly as good as it was during that 2008 match. Federer is the overwhelming favorite, there is no denying that, but the Swiss showed signs of weakness during his otherwise very straightforward first round match that could raise some questions. During the last set against the Italian Lorenzi, the Swiss needed no less than 6 match points to finally get the job done, and at times, he looked rather average.

If Muller can serve well and get into a couple of tie-breaks (the first set would be especially important), who knows? Weirder things have happened on the holy grass of Wimbledon.
