when you are leading 6-4 *5-4 30-15 against Isner and you got Llodra's serve on indoor hard and you still lose then it only means that you are DUMB

Teeehhee.

How shall I put this: market not surprised. Isner was favourite after going a set down, and at 1-1 dropped to 1.25.

Were both players in on it?

No, I've never heard of such a thing for Isner (like pretty much all the Americans). He doesn't need to be either, all that happened was market was always just pushing down on Llodra's price.

Llodra could have been injured, there was no TV. Of course, the benefit of the doubt is something Llodra forfeited long ago.

Isner's mental superiority strikes back.

Breaking Llodra 2 times in a row is one hell of an achievement, but seriously, Isner doing it? :haha:

Tournament sandwiched between two indoor ones at France could only mean a R1 exit for Llodra

ithink llodra doublefaulted at 5-4 30-15... i like llodra a lot, probably the only true serve&volleyer left. good win for john, he's gonna have big year in 2011 (maybe he can get to top 10 :eek: )

Damn, what a disappointing loss. Didn't think Llodra would win, but this is very sad...

Llodra was injured (shoulder). L'Equipe (paper) told it

How nice of him to tell those beforehand who made several 100k betting against him, even when he won the opening set, even when he was serving for the match.

Just like the time before he did the same thing.

And the time before that.

And the time before that.

And the time before that.

etcetc



He should be like Tips and Tursunov, don't bother denying, just have a good joke about it.

It's not the reason of defeat when you lead 5:4 (30-15) on serve and you are able to have 3:3 in the following set.

He called the kine but couldn't close the match...don't know if it's a tendinitis or nevralgia....as he used to have before
