ATLANTA, July 22 (UPI) -- American Andy Roddick picked up his second victory of the season Sunday, rallying for a win over Luxembourg's Gilles Muller at the Atlanta Open.

Roddick, seeded fourth in the event, dropped the first set 1-6, edged the stubborn Muller 7-6 (7-2) in the middle set and then put him away 6-2 in the deciding set for the 32nd win of his career.

The former world No. 1 took his other 2012 victory last month at Eastbourne.

Muller, who fell to 1-4 lifetime against Roddick, was done in by 10 double faults.
