Nine times in that heart-pounding decider, 31-year-old French Open champion Nadal served to stay alive.Men of lesser resolve than the 34-year-old Muller would have cracked — but the left-handed serve-and-volleyer was relentless in pursuit of victory and it was 15-times grand slam champion Nadal who succumbed when asked to walk the tightrope for the 10th time at 13-14.A miss-hit forehand gave Muller two more match points and this time there was no escape for Nadal as another error off his trusty weapon ballooned over the baseline.Muller stood motionless for a few seconds, taking in the enormity of his victory as the Court One crowd which has spent the past two hours on the edge of their seats, rose as one. There was little doubt he deserved the ovation. He outplayed Nadal in the opening two sets and then, after weathering a ferocious fightback, made the running in the fifth when his baseline craft matched Nadal’s.He struck 30 aces and 95 winners as he moved on to a quarter-final with Marin Cilic — his second in majors after reaching the last eight at the 2008 US Open. “I’m just glad it’s over,” Muller, who was cheered on from the stands by Prince Felix of Luxembourg, said.Big battle“I did really well in the first two sets, then Rafa stepped it up. It was a big battle. When I had the last two match points, I thought I just had to give it a shot. “Somehow in the end I made it.”Nadal has now failed to get past the fourth round since losing the 2011 final to Novak Djokovic, whose match against Adrian Mannarino was postponed to Tuesday because of the late-running drama taking place on Court One.Since then Nadal has lost to the likes of Lukas Rosol, Steve Darcis and Nick Kyrgios but this year, having claimed a 10th French Open, the Spaniard arrived at Wimbledon in peak form and fitness and looked a good bet for the title.Had he pulled this match out of the fire who knows where it would have taken Nadal. The crowd, despite loving an under-dog at Wimbledon, were firmly in his corner but even with their vocal backing he gave himself too much to do. “I think I didn’t play my best the first two sets, then I was always playing against the scoreboard. And that’s so difficult against a player like him,” Nadal told reporters.“So well done to him. He played well. Especially in the fifth, he played a great game. It was a great atmosphere. I put everything on the court. I played with all my passion.”Muller, one of the few players on the tour who is happy to come to the net, harassed Nadal from the start and took the first set with a single break of serve in the sixth game.Nadal made a mess of an attempted dropshot to give Muller a break at 4-4 in the second set and the man from Luxembourg moved two sets ahead when Nadal netted a backhand.When Nadal broke early in the third though it signalled a shift in momentum that took the match to a deciding set in which logic suggested the Spaniard would dominate. Muller had other ideas.Nadal was forced to save two match points, one with an ace, at 4-5, then two more again at 9-10, the first with a steadfast volley after moving Muller around the court.Muller came under fire at 6-6, saving a break point, and fought off four break points in an absorbing 18th game. After 32 holds of serve something had to give and surprisingly it was Nadal.center_img Rafael Nadal reacts during his fourth round match against Gilles Muller in Wimbledon 2017.   –  Reuters Gilles Muller struck 30 aces and 95 winners as he moved on to a quarter-final with Marin Cilic SHARE tennis Rafael Nadal reacts during his fourth round match against Gilles Muller in Wimbledon 2017.   –  Reuterslast_img

In this house we always fled to make “a nice home”. I think Art is not better or worse for its beauty but the degree of emotion that arises. Beauty is something superficial and, in most cases, false. My obsession in this case was to make a total abstraction (which has nothing to do with minimalism), evoking the same mixed emotions we feel when we see the black monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey”, Stonehenge, or the black smoke in “Lost”(tv serie). It is a black box that absorbs light, with no cap on the edges, with holes instead of windows. No proportion, its geometry is strictly demanded by the internal function. I tend to be formalistic in my architecture, but here I wanted to approach it as something that comes out of nowhere, as if I had never studied architecture. Not a house or a sculpture, I don´t know exactly what it is, and I don´t need to know it. And so makes me feel a restlessness sensation that keeps me going adore Architecture.

The terrain sloping slightly downwards, situating the area of the lounge-office-kitchen below the level of the road. Thanks to an elevated fold towards the road, it is possible to create an artificial skyline thus hiding the dwellings which surround the plot. This part is flexible, organic and open. Over it, a pure black steel parallelepiped, which lodges the rooms. This part is rigid, artificial and closed. The resulting effect is a pure enigmatic piece, which stands on a small artificial hill.Save this picture!© Ángel Luis TenderoProject gallerySee allShow less2011 AIA Honor Award / The Diana Center / Weiss ManfrediArticlesArchitecture WeekArticles Share Photographs 2010 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/126485/martin-house-alt-arquitectura Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/126485/martin-house-alt-arquitectura Clipboard CopyHouses•Madrid, Spaincenter_img ArchDaily Year:  Projects “COPY” Houses “COPY” Architects: ALT arquitectura Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeALT arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMadridHousesSpainPublished on April 11, 2011Cite: “Martin House / ALT arquitectura” 11 Apr 2011.
