Marseilles Open13 R3 WWW: Llodra vs. Olivetti

Both Serve & Volleyers in this match? How often does that happen?

Llodra age 31 vs. the italian age 20. I think Llodra will win due to his sheer experience. You can't out Serve & Volley Llodra can you?

I think Llodra should prevail in two tie-breaks.

Re: Marseilles Open13 R3 WWW: Llodra vs. Olivetti

Hard to say, i expect at least 2Tie-breaks, maybe even all 3. Both have great serves and are bad returners, court is fast and indoors, so really BP´s will be rare, Llodra is more experienced player, but in TB´s everything is possible and if Olivetti will in TB hit 5 service winners from 5 serves, Llodra can be under pressure, miss few 1st serves and after 2nd Ollivetti can take chances, but the same can happen otherwise, i see this match totally open, the one who will be hitting more 1st serves in TB´s should win this

Look at who is playing, his serve is too much for guy like Llodra and Llodra´s style should be too much for him too, pretty good serve-lefty serve and volleys to back-up that, unless Ollivetti has world-class passing shots can´t see him break Llodra´s serve more than once - so that´s why i expect tie-breaks

might be this time...
Olivetti has several lapses during a match so I won't be surprised if Llodra manages to break him once in every set.

Re: Marseilles Open13 R3 WWW: Llodra vs. Olivetti

I think Llodra in 2 with no tiebreaks needed.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Yep- he had 9 double faults- that's 2 entire service games worth.

Re: Marseilles Open13 R3 WWW: Llodra vs. Olivetti

If he serves as good as people say he does, then I really gotta see this guy in action. Too bad the match starts to late .

He's french.

It should be an interesting match.

Re: Marseilles Open13 R3 WWW: Llodra vs. Olivetti

Olivetti will struggle with Llodras huge second serve. Llodra is a good doubles player and usually makes a few cracking returns here and there. Besides, Olivetti won't get the crowd support he had against Fish.

One tiebreak and one break for Llodra.

Re: Marseilles Open13 R3 WWW: Llodra vs. Olivetti

Llodra is good at returning big serves and very hard to break for a poor returner.

He's always very motivated in France.

I expect him to win in 2 sets, maybe won't even need any tie-break.

useless old guy
