He made his ATP debut at the 2002 Rosmalen Grass Court Championships after receiving a wildcard into the singles main draw where he lost in the first round to Ivo Heuberger (2–6, 6–3, 6–7(8–10)).
By the time 2003 came, Müller had already broke into the top 300 and started consistently playing in ATP Challenger Tour events where he made his first challenger final in April and won his first challenger title in July. He qualified for his second ATP event, the 2003 Copenhagen Open where he lost in the first round to Jean-René Lisnard (5–7, 4–6).
Müller entered the qualifying draws of the 2003 French Open and the 2003 US Open, losing both in the first round.
2004–2005: ATP Tour finals and wins against top-10 playersEdit
Müller began 2004 with his first ATP Tour match win at the 2004 Auckland Open where he defeated Nicolás Lapentti (7–5, 6–7(3–7), 6–1) and his first grand slam at the 2004 Australian Open where he lost in the first round to David Ferrer (6–7(4–7), 1–6, 3–6). His breakthrough event came at the 2004 Legg Mason Tennis Classic where he made his first ATP Tour final and defeated 1st seed and world No. 6 Andre Agassi (4–6, 5–7) to register his first win over a top-10 player. He lost in the final to 2nd seed and world No. 8 Lleyton Hewitt (3–6, 4–6). His result at the tournament would push his ranking into the top-100 for the first time in his career.

2006–2007: Back outside of the top 100Edit
Müller's success started to die down in 2006. He started to get worse results in ATP events which dropped his ranking back outside of the top-100 to 105 by the end of the year. After January 2007, he returned to solely playing challenger events and had to start qualifying for grand slams and ATP events despite usually gaining automatic entry since 2005.
2008: First Grand Slam quarterfinalEdit
At the 2008 US Open, Müller, ranked 130 at the time, had to go through the qualification tournament.

Müller began 2015 at the Aircel Chennai Open, where he made the quarterfinals, losing to eventual champion Stan Wawrinka. He then competed in the Sydney International losing in the semifinals to Viktor Troicki, the eventual champion. He put together his best Australian Open campaign to date, losing in the fourth round to world No. 1 and eventual champion Novak Djokovic (4–6, 5–7, 5–7). His performance during the entire month saw him crack the top 40 for the first time in his career on 2 February.
He had a strong showing in Rotterdam, defeating David Goffin and Grigor Dimitrov, and then lost to Wawrinka in the quarterfinals. However, he fell out of the top 50 for the first time of the year on 11 May because he didn't defend his titles on the Challenger Tour.
Müller had a strong start to the grass court season, reaching the semifinals of the Topshelf Open as well as the quarterfinals at Queen's, beating defending champion Dimitrov for the second time in two meetings since the beginning of the year. He then lost to eventual champion Andy Murray.
This was followed by a semifinals appearance at the 2015 BB&T Atlanta Open, where he eventually lost to Marcos Baghdatis in three sets (7–6, 3–6, 6–7).

2017: Career-best year, top 25 debut and career-high rankingEdit
Müller finally won his maiden ATP World Tour title at the 2017 Sydney International, over a decade after his first final. He saved a match point in the first round against Alexandr Dolgopolov. This came less than a week after he lost in the men's doubles final of the 2017 Brisbane International, playing alongside Sam Querrey.
He also made the final of Estoril, losing to Pablo Carreño Busta in what was his first ATP final played on clay. This resulted in him reaching a singles ranking of 26.
Then, at the 2017 Ricoh Open aged 34, Müller set up the oldest ATP World Tour tournament singles final in 41 years against Ivo Karlović, aged 38. He won the match in two straight tiebreaks (7–6, 7–6), claiming his second ATP World Tour title in the process.
Despite being ranked 26 in the world, Müller's excellent form on grass in the last 12 months saw him earn a seeding of 16th at Wimbledon, where he made the quarterfinals after defeating world No. 2 Rafael Nadal in a five-set thriller, winning (6–3, 6–4, 3–6, 4–6, 15–13) in 4 hours and 48 minutes. The Luxembourger would subsequently have his run at The Championships ended by the eventual runner-up Marin Čilić, who beat him in another match that went five sets (6–3, 6–7, 5–7, 7–5, 1–6), after Müller experienced physical fatigue during the 5th set.
After reaching a career-high singles ranking of world No. 21 on 31 July and ending the season ranked world No. 25, he was elected Luxembourg's Sportsman of the Year for the fourth year in a row.
