Michael Llodra at the Open

Does anyone know what's going on with Michael? I read that he fainted after retiring from his match with Carlos on Tuesday and was taken to the hospital. I assume it was heat-related, but I haven't heard anything since then. Has he recovered? Is he still playing doubles with Fabrice?

I hope he's better. It would be a shame if he had to drop out now. He and Fabrice are a great team.

Re: Michael Llodra at the Open

Heat, humidity take toll on more players at Open
Posted: Tuesday August 30, 2005 8:22PM; Updated: Tuesday August 30, 2005 8:22PM
NEW YORK (AP) -- The late summer heat and humidity claimed a few more players at the U.S. Open on Tuesday.

Frenchman Michael Llodra fainted after retiring from his first-round match against Carlos Moya, and Spain's Albert Montanes advanced when Victor Hanescu of Romania retired. Britain's Andy Murray threw up during his match, yet went on to win in five sets.

Temperatures reached an afternoon high of 84 degrees, with humidity topping out at 72 percent and making it feel several degrees warmer.

The 25-year-old Llodra withdrew from his match after losing the first two sets 6-4, 6-4 and trailing 2-1 in the third. He quit because of "illness exacerbated by the heat," tournament spokesman Neil Davidson said. On his way back from the outer courts to the changing rooms in Arthur Ashe Stadium, Llorda collapsed.

He was attended to by onsite medical personnel and taken to a local hospital for treatment. No further word on his condition was immediately available, Davidson said.

Un univers impitoyable

Gaël Monfils a cédé hier en cinq sets contre Novak Djokovic. Michaël Llodra, lui, a été victime d'un malaise.

C’EST SUR UN BRANCARD que Michaël Llodra a quitté le stade de Flushing Meadows hier. Assommé par la chaleur et l’humidité, contraint à l’abandon devant Carlos Moya, il se dirigeait vers la fraîcheur de l’air conditionné des couloirs du stade quand des témoins le virent vaciller sur ses jambes. Pris en main par les pompiers new-yorkais, il se retrouva quelques minutes plus tard à l’hôpital, une perfusion dans le bras. Elle suffit à lui redonner du souffle et des couleurs, mais il était une victime de plus à mettre au compte de cet ogre de tournoi qui dévore les organismes les moins résistants. Privé de compétition et d’entraînement par des blessures à répétitions le Français appartenait à la population à risque [...]

A la loupe
Llodra aux urgences
NEW YORK – de notre envoyé spécial

VISIBLE À QUELQUES FOULÉES du court no 7, où il venait d’abandonner à 6-4, 6-4, 2-1 contre Carlos Moya, l’image de Michaël Llodra, étendu au sol, entouré d’une nuée de pompiers tenant une perfusion au-dessus de sa tête, était spectaculaire. Plus de peur que de mal d’après son coach Lionel Roux, joint au téléphone un peu plus tard : « Nous sommes aux urgences, dans un hôpital du Queen’s, mais Mika n’a rien de grave. En fait, il est sorti du court puis il s’est allongé. Il tremblait et il a perdu connaissance une quinzaine de secondes. Il a eu un coup de chaud, comme une grosse crise d’hypoglycémie, une chute de tension. Alors, parce qu’on est aux États-Unis, ça a été le branle-bas de combat. Mais ça va mieux. Sur le court, il était mou, il ne jouait pas, il se plaignait de la chaleur. Pourtant, il avait ses boissons énergétiques et il s’était alimenté normalement ce matin. C’est bizarre… »

Re: Michael Llodra at the Open

I think Llodra is now ok but i don't know if him and Fabrice will play the doubles. I don't know what's been decided. If Llodra is ok, it would be a shame if they didn't play...

My French isn't up to this. Can anyone give me a brief translation?

Re: Michael Llodra at the Open

Well, I guess he didn't pull out of doubles after all, he and Fabrice just started their match against Knowle and Melzer. Good to know that he's all right.

Ruthless environment

Gaël Monfils bowed out in five sets against Novak Djokovic. Michaël Llodra was, him, victim of faintness.

IT'S ON A STRECHER that Michaël Llodra had to leave the stadium of Flushing Meadows yesterday. Stunned by the heat and humidity, forced to retire from his match against Carlos Moya, he was heading towards the fresh air of the climatized corridors of the stadium when witnesses saw him slaggering. Taken care of by the New York firemen, he found himself in a hospital a few minutes later with a perfusion in his arm. It was enough to give him back breath and some colors to his face but he had to be added to the list of the victim of this "ogre" of a tournament eating alive all those whose organism can't resist to its conditions. Not able to train nor to take part in any competition for a few weeks now because of repetitive injuries, the Frenchman was part of the population of people risking this...

Re: Michael Llodra at the Open

Close-up
Llodra taken to the Emergencies

WHAT COULD BE SEEN a few steps away from the court n°7, on which he had just retired from his match against Carlos Moya at 6-4, 6-4, 2-1, was the spectacular sight of Michaël Llodra lied on the ground surrounded by a group of firemen holding a perfusion above his head. More frightened than hurt according to his coach Lionel Roux, joined by phone a bit later: « We are in the ER in an hospital in the Queen's but Mika has nothing serious. In fact, he went out of the court and felt weak so he lied on the ground. Then he was shaking and fainted. He lost consciousness for like fifteen seconds. He suffered from the heat, it was like a big crisis of hypoglycaemia, a drop of blood pressure. So, since we're here in the US, they like very quickly "cleared the desks for action" and everything, it was quite a fuss...But he's better now. On the court, he was lifeless, he didn't play, kept complaining about the heat. Still he had his energetic drinks and he ate normally this morning. This is weird...»

You're welcome.
Well, Mika and Fabrice lost 6-3, (0)6-7, 4-6.
It's a huge disappointment!
