Re: Michael Llodra

Here's what he says in L'Equipe, I saw only a part of his match yesterday, but I was really shocked by his poor serving performance:
« À cause de mon épaule et de l’infiltration que j’ai subie, je ne peux plus trop travailler mon service au panier, dit-il, plutôt abattu. J’ai perdu le rythme, je ne me sens plus super-costaud sur ce coup. Résultat : je suis timoré dans le reste du jeu. J’ai perdu cette agressivité qui faisait ma force. »

He's crushed and says that he can't practice his serve a lot because of his shoulder (he got an infiltration after Melbourne). He has no feel for his serve anymore, which shows in the rest of his game, he's too fearful on the court, he's lost the "aggressiveness" which was his main strength.

Re: Michael Llodra

He says his shoulder is feeling fine and he could rely on his serve for the first time this year.
He was overdoing it last week on his serve, that's why his arm was hurting again, but they've made some adjustments in practice and he's OK now.
He sounds very confident.

Re: Michael Llodra

When Mika plays like tonight he truly is a joy to watch. Winners all over, great volleys, a backhand to die for... Plus he moves like a dancer and could easily be voted most elegant player on the circuit. I wish him at least one good FULL year in single, with no health problem and a great grass season. His beautiful tennis deserves it, it's a dying breed... After that, he can finish by being World n.1 in doubles


SIMONFILS
& TSONGASQUET
+ a few others...

Re: Michael Llodra

amazing display, really, I hope he can get past Youzhny now or even better, win the title here; if he keeps playing the way he does, he should have a shot

Re: Michael Llodra

Llodra n’avait plus gagné deux matches d’affilée depuis son escale herbeuse à Halle en juin dernier. « Oui, et je vous informe que c’est la première fois en douze ans de carrière que je me qualifie pour un quart en France ! »
It's the first time since June he wins two matches in a row. "Indeed, and I can also tell you that it’s the first time in 12 years I make it to a QF in France!"
