RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

One of the most intresting matches tomorrow besides Baker-Simon and no thread!?
Well... I give Llodra decent shot to win over Berdych.Llodra won over Berdych in 5 setter already in 2008
and obviously besides home advantage Berdych doesn't play easily against Frenchman. To me Federer-Berdych match is not obvious as many people expect.
Opinions, please, thanks!

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

Berdych usually has at least one early round scare/upset in Slams even when he's playing great tennis.

Hopefully this pattern won't repeat itself this time around and Tomas will win in 3 as he should.

Well when they played in New York in R1 2 years ago Berdych hit something like 38 winners and 17 unforced errors and still lost in straights.

Doubt Llodra can play that kind of tennis on a court like this though.

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

Mika has a shot. He gave Delpo tons of trouble on the much slower clay of Rome.

If he can get the crowd going...

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

Very bad matchup for Tomas the destroyer. LLodra won't give him any rhythm. Berdych needs to be patient.
Tomas in 4 sets

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

Llodra is experienced and smart. We'll see how much he goes to the net, most likely a lot. Llodra can decide to go kamikaze tennis and then Berdych is out of his comfort zone. Berdych isn't a defensive player so he isn't used to be put under pressure or having to play passing shots every other point. He'd rather boss around himself.

So yes I could see Berd struggle a little but he'd struggle more if it was fast indoors. Now he will have the time and Llodra will have it hard to keep the volleys low enough.

Berdych will win in 3 sets

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

Berdych in 3 easily. I don't see what Llodra could do to trouble him right now but I'd love to be proven wrong.

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

If Llodra serves well (First Serve Percentage around 65-70%) enough he has a decent shot against the Czech. If not Berdych will take it in three or four sets.

Re: RG Round 2 Berdych-Llodra

Can Llodra do the impossible?

The Youtube clips of Llodra beating Birdman in 3 at the 2010 USO are epic. That said this is clay, how can Serve & Volley win on clay? Impossible. Does not compute.

Berdych in 3.
