For a Spot in FO QFs: Gulbis-Llodra WWW?

On the one hand it's hard to imagine many breaks of serve at all, on the other hand it's almost impossible to imagine this match being close. If Gulbis plays like he can and has been this week Llodra has no chance; if Gulbis gets overwhelmed by the moment, Center Court, and the pro-Llodra French crowd, he has no chance.

I think Llorda will win this in five. Be a tough battle, but the French will be behind Llorda and will support him through to the QF.

Gulbis, unless Llodra produces some really outstanding serving performance and somehow manages to break Gulbis. Who knows, Ernests is an unexperienced player on that level, and surely he didn't play many times against lefties
