Ricoh Open 2016: Mahut vs. Muller Championship Prediction

[7] Gilles Muller (LUX) vs  [8-WC] Nicolas Mahut (FRA)

Mahut is the recently minted #1 player in the world in doubles.  He also has won 3 career singles titles on grass.  Muller owns a Wimbledon win over Rafael Nadal (2005) and is ranked 5 spots above Mahut in the most recent ATP singles rankings.  Muller has never won an ATP title before and that may work to his advantage.  Both men are veterans, and Muller may not get this opportunity again.  These two veterans have never met before.  I think Muller’s lefty game may just bring him a singles title.

My Prediction: Giller Muller d. Nicolas Mahut 6-4, 7-6
