Gilles Müller (born on May 9, 1983) is a Luxembourgian professional tennis player. He was a U.S. Open junior champion and is one of the all time most successful players of his small country. He was born and raised and currently resides in Schifflange.

Professional career

Remarkable results against top players were Müller's victories over Andy Roddick in the first round of the 2005 US Open, over Rafael Nadal at the 2005 Wimbledon Championships and over Andre Agassi at the semifinals of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic 2004 in Washington D.C. At that tournament, he reached the final which he lost against Lleyton Hewitt.

At the 2008 US Open Gilles Müller, then ranked 130, had to go through the qualification tournament. He reached the main draw, where he consecutively beat Laurent Recouderc, former No. 2 Tommy Haas, Nicolas Almagro and 5th-seeded Nikolay Davydenko, advancing to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in his career. In fact, he was not sure that he would even qualify and so he did not even book a hotel room for the tournament. He then lost to defending and eventual champion Roger Federer by a score of 6-7 (5-7), 4-6, 6-7 (5-7).
