Who is Gilles Muller?
Gilles Muller was born on May 9, 1983 in Schifflange, Luxembourg to Marcel, a retired postal worker and Miriam, a housewife. He also has a brother named Patrick. He attended high school in Luxembourg until he was 16 years old and then moved to France. He is fluent in French, English, German, and Luxembourgish.
Gilles Muller’s Net Worth
Before Gilles Muller’s tennis career took off in 2001, he started playing when he was just 5 years old. Now, the 34-year-old tennis pro is No. 26 in the game and Gilles Muller highlights are known to tennis fans around the world. Gilles Muller’s salary to date as of last year was $678,630. In January 2017, he won his first ATP World Tour title.
Gilles Muller’s Wife and Kids
On July 10, 2010, Gilles married Alessia Fauzzi. The couple first met when they were just teenagers, but didn’t date until 2001. Alessia is also from Luxembourg and travels to see her husband’s tournaments. Now, they live in Leudelange in Southwestern Luxembourg with their two sons, Lenny (born May 6, 2011) and Nils (born June 5, 2012).
He Suffered and Injury
In 2013, Muller suffered an elbow injury, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Although it stalled his career for a while, he attributed the recovery time to being used to spend more time with his family. He’s back and ready to take on the challenge, and just because Marin Cilic is favored, doesn’t mean that he’s guaranteed to win!
He Beat Rafael Nadal
On July 10, Muller shocked the tennis world after he defeated Nadal in the Wimbledon Championships. In beating the two-time champion, Muller was able to move up and compete in the quarter-finals. With every volley and every backhand, the left-handed tennis pro kept onlookers on the edge of their seats. Now, Muller is facing Marin Cilic, who is expected to win the match. Muller is definitely going to have to play harder against Cilic and shouldn’t revel too much in his sweeping victory against Nadal. Is there a chance that Muller can keep up with Cilic’s own technique? Some fans agree, while others, not so much. But we won’t know for sure until the final score is called, so make sure you tune in to the quarterfinals today to find out!
