I think it is surprising that it finished in 3 sets. Disappointed with Bolelli, should've won some sets.

Good match, tough, both are inspired but Llodra was better. Isn't surprise for me.

Too bad Simone:(
He was up 4-1* 40/0 in the second but missed an easy volley and a df on BP:help: then the match was over:o

Llodra and Gulbis will be a good match, both in form, and a nice contrast of styles.

I expected more from Bolelli, but Llodra certainly deserved this victory. He has a lovely game to watch, and it's nice to see someone with a classical serve-and-volley style get this far on clay.
Well done, and hopefully he'll be able to do well against Gulbis as well.

It's funny to glance through the post-match commentary, it reads as if the general consensus is that Bolelli has been the model on tour in terms of mental stability -- however wrong that assertion may indeed be.

Everything had to go right for Bolelli to win this match.

GREAT result :yeah:

what a character this Mika and a Frenchman who loves playing infront of his own fans - doesnt crumble into a shell ala Mauresmo, Gasquet, PHM ..

Bolelli had his chances in all three sets. The occasion was simply too much for him.

First time I see Bolelli, he's a good player and will be a solid Top 25 in the future.

I thought Bolelli would win this one but obviously Llodra had everything on his side today. Great performance!

Good result from him, second time in the fourth round with a really good chance to get to the QF. He must be hoping to be scheduled on court 2.

adee-gee

Bolelli = Overrated. He's been on a good run but he'll do well to ever get in the top 20, and never be top 10.

He reached the 4th round in the great comedy of 04. Lost to clay god Henman

Good to see this kind of player progress and add a little variety into the game.

I really thought Bolelli would make the QF with a draw like that but he just can't cope with any kind of big serving and volleying.

Llodra played smart tennis.If he wanted to stand in the beseline and play long rallies against Bolelli he couldnt win it.Nice to see somone plays different tennis on clay.

It's not smart tennis. It's his usual game.

This was a great opportunity for Simone to reach the Quarters or at least 4th round but he blew it.
Again a french player through... great RG this year for the French people.

I know it's his usual game but he didnt come forward to net so much against Patience and also other serve & volley players usually don't dare to play like this all the time on clay.
