Re: RG R1: Darcis def. Llodra 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-3 6-3
Steve played a great match and really took away Mika's game by coming to the net himself, being aggressive and by being very effective with his passing shots and lobs. He really out strategized Llodra throughout the match and probably should have won in straights. Also served very well throughout the match. Now playing likely Picasso in R2, a great opportunity for an R3 and maybe even better at RG.
Steve has a lot of talent, it's all about staying healthy and staying motivated for him. Hopefully he can continue to shine and show his stuff in this event.
