I always knew Llodra was a fucking idiot. His game is easy on the eyes, but he is one hell of a douchebag. Only rivaled by Clement I think, from the current generation.

This stuff sounds like Bullshit to me.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Sure, several reporters that were front-row at the match are just bullshitting around.

Why he was aggressive towards the fan?

Why would he swear in English?

Sounds like a misunderstanding to me

Are you serious Llodra? What kind of behaviour is that?

Re: Indian Wells R1: Llodra def. Gulbis 6-3 5-7 7-6(3)

I know Llodra is considered a crazy clown by his fellow players in the locker room, but I think I have read he has had som outbursts before. I really like his game, and he seems like a funny, nice and somewhat strange guy in interviews, but this is obviously unacceptable.

I would like the reporter to share what may have caused this though. I don't think (hope) he berates people for no reason, and we all know fans sometimes can cross the line.

Llodra grew up as a rich kid, spoiled by his parents and by the environment he lived in. A lot of people see him as a prankster with a nice game. Underneath that there is one ugly asshole, to say the least. Everybody knows about Clement and Bogomolov. Well, Llodra is right up there with them.

I have no idea if those words were said in English or in French and translated by the reporter. The original tweet was from Tom Tebbutt, a well respected Canadian tennis writer and he speaks French as well. I really doubt there's any reason he would attempt to tell a lie. If you read his blog or articles regularly, you'd know he's not that kind of a person who loves to spread controversial reports.

Gulbis

Llodra I've never had a problem with before so the reports of his misbehaviour in this match, especially the racial insult, are very disappointing.
