METZ (Reuters) - the Frenchman Arnaud Clément began his season indoor well by going through the first round of the Moselle Open after having dominated over his compatriot Michaël Llodra 7-5 6-1 on Wednesday in Metz. The Inhabitant of Aix spent time taking the upperhand against Llodra, 154th in the world. "I was tense in the beginning. I took 3-0 but it totaled 3-3 and I had to save some break points. I have experience of these French matches. I conditioned myself better to be mean", underlined Clément. Head of series n°4, the Frenchman hopes to make a big impact in Lorraine. "This season, I played a lot to make up for my two months of absence from the circuit. That wore me out mentally. I did not have enough moments which made me shake", he noted. "I am expecting big things. I want to give everything in this final straight. I cannot forget that I only have one title (Lyon in 2000, editor's note)." Clément will play the Italian Davide Sanguinetti in the second round on Thursday.
