Agassi Upset by Unknown Muller at ATP Washington

Posted on August 22, 2004

Luxembourg's Gilles Muller stunned top-seeded Andre Agassi 6-4, 7-5 Saturday to reach the final of the ATP stop at Washington.

The 6-foot-5 Muller uncorked a big left-handed game against Agassi in their first meeting.

"It's always tough when you've never played someone before," Agassi said. "You have to stay solid to see how his game develops."

Muller, ranked outside the Top 100, says he entered the match-up unafraid.

"When I entered the court, I entered to win," Muller said. "I didn't miss so many balls and at the break points, I played very good."

In Sunday's final the unseeded Muller will face No. 2 seed Lleyton Hewitt, who beat No. 4 Robby Ginepri 6-3, 6-4. It will be a first-time meeting between Muller and the former No. 1 Aussie.

The doubles final will be Haggard/Koenig vs. Parrott/Tursunov.
