One of Luxembourg’s most internationally famous athletes has made his way to the 2017 U.S. Open in New York, to much excitement in Luxembourg.
At 34, Müller is an exceptional symbol of Luxembourg and is well known as doing well for himself at an age when others are retiring. IN fact, he has transformed himself into a better player late in his career, having won his first two ATP titles this year, on the hard courts of Sydney in January and the grass of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands, in June.
Müller’s success this year even extended to the Grand Slam level, where he outlasted Rafael Nadal, 15-13, in a fifth set to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals, a result that helped propel him to a career-high ranking of No. 21.
