R1: Nicolas 3-0 Aqeel

Nicolas Mueller (SUI) 3-0 [Q] Aqeel Rehman (AUT) 11-6, 11-9, 11-7 (33m)

“I am pleased to be in the second round. I knew it was not going to be an easy match. It is his first ever World Champs so I knew he would be hungry,” Mueller said.

“The scores were always even until the middle patch when I managed to get a few points on the run. It is always nice when I was able to score a few points as it helped with my confidence. I was not entirely happy with the way I played, but I am glad to be through.”
