Well, yeah I mean it will be a good match to watch and that Mika has a chance. It would be a better match then say Federer-Hrbaty I suppose. Sure it won't be easy, but I hope Mika gives Mario a hard time.

Re: Michael Llodra

It’s a bit old, but here’s what he said in Nottingham about the problem with his arm (which forced him to pull out of Halle):
LLODRA SE PRÉSERVE. –Contraint à l’abandon en quarts de finale à Halle, Michaël Llodra s’est retiré hier du tournoi de Nottingham. Son bras gauche est trop fragile pour lui permettre d’enchaîner les tournois. « C’est un forfait de précaution avant Wimbledon, explique-t-il. Je pourrais presque jouer ici, mais je veux ménager mon épaule, a fortiori si des matches en cinq sets sont à venir. » Toujours aussi peu avancé sur le diagnostic médical, le Français a décidé de rester à Nottingham pour s’entraîner. « Beaucoup de physique, pour la vitesse et l’explosivité. Je ne taperai que quarante-cinq minutes par jour et ne recommencerai à servir que jeudi ou vendredi. Et, à partir de lundi, je compte frapper 300 aces par match ! »

He could have played Nottingham, but preferred to save his shoulder for Wimbledon since playing a couple of tournaments in a row can be a problem. His withdrawal was just precautionary.
He stayed in Nottingham to do a lot of physical training and work on his speed. He started serving again at the end of the week only in order to rest his arm for Wimbledon and to turn into an "ace machine" from Monday on.

Re: Michael Llodra

Llodra is little injured. He gets a problem with a bone of the right buttock ??? and retires. He moved very slowly.

Michaël Llodra a été contraint à l'abandon lundi au premier tour de Wimbledon à cause d'une blessure à la hanche alors qu'il était mené 6-4, 7-6 (9/7), 2-0 par le Croate Mario Ancic.

"C'est une inflammation du moyen fessier. C'est quelque chose qui m'arrive trop souvent, deux ou trois fois par an. Cette fois-ci c'était après l'entraînement de samedi. J'avais mal à ne pas pouvoir poser le pied par terre", a-t-il expliqué.

"Ce matin je savais que ça allait être difficile. J'ai essayé de faire mon maximum mais c'était trop dur".

Le Parisien, âgé de 28 ans, n'a jamais été chanceux à Wimbledon, où son jeu de serveur-volleyeur devrait pourtant lui permettre de briller. En sept participations, il n'a jamais dépassé le deuxième tour. Paradoxalement il réussit bien mieux sur la terre battue de Roland-Garros. Il était en huitième de finale à Paris il y a trois semaines.

"J'avais des objectifs élevés. C'est frustrant de ne pas pouvoir faire au moins un match à fond", a dit Llodra, qui était pour la première fois tête de série (N.32) du tournoi anglais grâce à ses bons résultats cette saison.

Sa participation au double avec Arnaud Clément est désormais très incertaine. Les deux hommes, qui forment une des meilleures paires du circuit, avaient remporté l'épreuve l'année dernière.

I wonder if it's his hip.

Re: Michael Llodra

There are a few lignes about him in L’Equipe today, he finally made some tests in Paris for his shoulder and it’s nothing serious, the joint is not damaged, it’s just a problem with the nerve. He will now go on holiday and will start practicing again in 10 days in order to be back for Toronto.

Thanks for the information. Seems like nerve damage would be bad also.

Toronto again already? I haven't been paying attention to the upcoming tournaments, but I guess it is about that time for the US Open Series.

Re: Michael Llodra

L'Equipe writes the problem with the biceps which forced him to retire in Cincy is a new one, btw. I thought it was again the same problem with a nerve of the shoulder, but it is different this time (miné par une douleur au biceps gauche qu’il ne connaissait ni d’Ève ni d’Adam jusqu’à avant-hier...).
