ATLANTA (AP) — Gilles Muller of Luxembourg beat eighth-seeded Go Soeda of Japan 6-4, 6-3 in the semifinals of the Atlanta Open on Saturday.

Muller will play for his first ATP Tour title and will face either top-seeded John Isner or No. 4-seeded Andy Roddick on Sunday.

At 6-foot-4, Muller had 17 aces to Soeda's two, winning in 1 hour, 13 minutes. Muller is 0-2 in career finals and last played for a title in 2005.

Muller advanced to the quarterfinals Thursday when second-seeded Mardy Fish had to withdraw with a sprained right ankle. Fish was leading the match when he retired in the second set.
