Yes, Llodra plays against Del Potro in the final of Marseille. They played the 1st round in Rotterdam where JM won in 3 sets.

It's strange that Roger and Mika only met once on the tour in all the years. I think we all still remember their match in Toronton in 2010 - Llodra with an underarm service in the 2nd set and the T-shirt exchange after the match

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

I thought it was cooler last time, this time it seemed more corporate with those interviews in a little ring... still a fun event though!

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

This week the match might be played in a less relaxed atmosphere.

Last week Llodra had very harsh words to Marco Chiudinelli in Marseilles, which were transcripted in French newspaper l'Equipe :

"he's a disreputable character, this match was very important in my eyes and I badly wanted to beat him", etc.

http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/Actuali...u-coeur/265339

then he keeps on : "Dolgopolov on the contrary is a nice guy" etc ...

According to some people, it would be related to a story which happened in Roland-Garros when Chiudinelli had taken Llodra's favorite locker.

Some French people who met Marco last week said he was very nice with them, he talked with them for 20 minutes, but looked upset after his defeat to Llodra.

useless old guy

Thanks for the photos mlrf11! They're great

Wow those are harsh words from Llodra about Chiudi I hope it's justified by something more than a stupid squabble over a locker, or even that it's not justified at all.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

I hope it's only a misunderstanding because I like him too much, maybe of the translations, or because he doesnt't well English end maybe he told something meaning other thing. As I know Llodra is a very correct. He likes a lot joking.

Marco is a very nice guy OFF-court, but I've heard about folks complaining about his on-court behaviour before - he can get rather 'heated up' at times.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
