Dominik Mueller is in his third season as an assistant coach for the
Baylor men's tennis team after serving one season as the volunteer
assistant. Mueller spent four years playing for the Bears finishing with
the most dual-match wins in school history with 96.
Last season, Mueller aided in getting the Bears back to another Big 12 regular season title, the program's 11th, and the round of 16 of the NCAA Championships. He helped groom two newcomers and two fellow Germans Patrick Pradella and Julian Lenz. Pradella finished the year as one of the nation's top 30 players and Lenz won the Big 12's Freshman of the Year honor. Overall, Mueller helped oversee BU to a 22-6 record, a 5-0 Big 12 mark and an end of the year rank of No. 12.
In his first year as Knoll's full-time assistant, Mueller helped nurture one of the youngest teams in the country. With five freshmen, a sophomore, a junior and two seniors, the Bears finished the season with a 19-12 record. BU advanced to the finals of the Big 12 Championship and made it back to the NCAA Championship round of 16. With Mueller's help, freshman Mate Zsiga earned All-American honors in singles play.
While serving as the volunteer assistant, Mueller completed his
degree in finance and graduated in May of 2011. After graduation, he
started work on his Master's in Sports Management.
During his time as a player, the Bears won three Big 12 regular season
titles, three Big 12 Championship crowns and made one NCAA
semifinal and three NCAA quarterfinal appearances.
Beside his record for most career dual-match wins, Mueller ranks
third in total singles wins (120), sixth in win percentage (.774) and
eighth in conference wins (19).
The German native also is tied for first in most single-season dual
matches won with 28 and is tied for eighth in single matches won in a
season with 37.
Before coming to Baylor, Mueller competed in both the French Open
and U.S. Open Junior Tournaments. He reached No. 35 in ITF World
Junior rankings. Mueller took down Kevin Anderson to win Offenbach,
an ITF Grade 1 event, in Frankfurt, Germany. It was one of Mueller's
nine victories over players that at one time have been ranked in the top-
100 by the ATP.
