Am I missing something? Llodra seems an odd choice for the french to choose. A younger player would surely benefit more. Rufin or Jouan perhaps, or even Mannarino. Mind you wimbledon would still give Henman or Rusedski a MD Wild Card if they asked.
Llodra is not so old ... but well, I guess the decision is mainly because Llodra plays for the Davis Cup team and that's why he's important for the FFT.
