One of the most intresting matches tomorrow besides Baker-Simon and no thread!?
Well... I give Llodra decent shot to win over Berdych.Llodra won over Berdych in 5 setter already in 2008
and obviously besides home advantage Berdych doesn't play easily against Frenchman. To me Federer-Berdych match is not obvious as many people expect.
Opinions, please, thanks!

Berdych usually has at least one early round scare/upset in Slams even when he's playing great tennis.

Hopefully this pattern won't repeat itself this time around and Tomas will win in 3 as he should.

Well when they played in New York in R1 2 years ago Berdych hit something like 38 winners and 17 unforced errors and still lost in straights. :eek:

Doubt Llodra can play that kind of tennis on a court like this though.

Mika has a shot. He gave Delpo tons of trouble on the much slower clay of Rome.

If he can get the crowd going...

Very bad matchup for Tomas the destroyer. LLodra won't give him any rhythm. Berdych needs to be patient.
Tomas in 4 sets

Llodra is experienced and smart. We'll see how much he goes to the net, most likely a lot. Llodra can decide to go kamikaze tennis and then Berdych is out of his comfort zone. Berdych isn't a defensive player so he isn't used to be put under pressure or having to play passing shots every other point. He'd rather boss around himself.

So yes I could see Berd struggle a little but he'd struggle more if it was fast indoors. Now he will have the time and Llodra will have it hard to keep the volleys low enough.

Berdych will win in 3 sets

Berdych in 3 easily. I don't see what Llodra could do to trouble him right now but I'd love to be proven wrong.

If Llodra serves well (First Serve Percentage around 65-70%) enough he has a decent shot against the Czech. If not Berdych will take it in three or four sets.

Can Llodra do the impossible?

The Youtube clips of Llodra beating Birdman in 3 at the 2010 USO are epic. That said this is clay, how can Serve & Volley win on clay? Impossible. Does not compute.

Berdych in 3.

Why? He is the last S&Volleyer on tour. What do you gotta hate on a near extinct species and the last of his kind? :mad:

i do like his game a lot but his racist/clownish behaviour on and off the court are enough to root for whatever opponent he might face

even berdych and that's saying a lot.

Yeah that is true Llodra is a total douche.

But his game makes up for it. Sure he is a terrible human being but he plays beautiful tennis. And that my friends is all that matters.

What a fantastic match up this is. Unfortunately for Llodra it's being played on a slow surface. Tomas will pull it off in 4 entertaining sets. He'd better not piss off the French crowds :smash:

I don't know if everybody has noticed, but Llodra is the one who hit and killed that bird in the AO Men's doubles SF in 2003. Michael Llodra is a bird killer. Look out Tomas.

Great post.

"Fucking chinese" is apparently the worst thing anyone has ever said. Whoever is without sin may throw a rock in his house of glass.
