Atlanta - Gilles Muller of Luxembourg beat eighth-seeded Go Soeda of Japan 6-4, 6-3 in the semi-finals 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.

Muller had 17 aces to Soeda's two. Muller lost both of his previous finals, also in the US, in Washington in 2004 and Los Angeles in 2005.

Muller advanced to the quarter-finals on Thursday when second-seeded Mardy Fish withdrew with a sprained right ankle. Fish was leading the match when he retired in the second set.
